  • Proficient in deep learning frameworks like Tensorflow, PyTorch, etc. and scientific computing packages like NumPy. Able to implement an algorithm as described in an academic paper using these frameworks in quality code.
  • Strong computer science background, with experience in object-oriented programming, systems design, data structures and algorithms.
  • Familiarity with source control (Git) and Unix systems, including shell scripting.
  • Good intuition for applying AI theory to make business-oriented products with minimal guidance.
  • Communicate to introduce honesty and clarity (avoiding buzzwords and jargon) to experts in multiple disciplines. Demonstrate a mature understanding of the current possibilities and limitations of AI research.
