Founding Decentralized ML Research Engineer

Hugging Face

Here at Hugging Face, we’re on a journey to advance good machine learning and make it more accessible. Along the way, we contribute to the development of technology for the better.

We have built the fastest-growing, open-source library of pre-trained models in the world. With more than 500K+ models and 250K+ stars on GitHub, over 15,000 companies are using Hugging Face’s tools in production, including leading AI organizations such as Google, Microsoft, Elastic, Salesforce, Grammarly, and NASA.

About the Role

This is a new team at Hugging Face and you will be joining as the founding ML engineer. This will come with leadership responsibilities and helping the team grow over time.

As a Decentralized Machine Learning Research Engineer, you will be collaborating with open-source communities while doing impactful machine learning research. You’ll be responsible for establishing collaborations with researchers, identifying areas Hugging Face’s tools and libraries can support researchers throughout the research process, and collaborating with researchers to publish amazing work.

The work will likely be pretty varied: in some cases, you might work with industry or academic partners early in the research process and coauthor papers. In other cases, you might set up these collaborations at a high level and guide them to the final release. We’re interested in folks who are willing to experiment with different models and figure out how to have the most impact while working with the amazing open-source machine learning community.

About you

You have done cutting-edge machine learning research and/or engaged and collaborated with the research/open source community, such as Hugging Face, Eleuther, Carper, LAION, OpenAssistant or researchers at Google, Meta, etc

If you love open-source research, are passionate about making complex technology more accessible, and want to contribute to one of the fastest-growing ML ecosystems, then we can't wait to see your application!

If you're interested in joining us, but don't tick every box above, we still encourage you to apply! We're building a diverse team whose skills, experiences, and background complement one another. We're happy to consider where you might be able to make the biggest impact.
