In this role, you will work with product teams, SREs, researchers, and the volunteer community on machine learning models making Wikipedia and similar projects better. One day you might work on taking a model in a Jupyter Notebook created by Wikimedia’s Research Team and re-implementing it as a scalable production machine learning model to predict whether an edit is vandalism, the next day you might help volunteers contribute to our machine learning models already in production.

You are responsible for:

Additionally, we’d love it if you have:

  • Experience with Docker, Kubeflow, or other MLOps systems
  • Experience with volunteer communities and open source software development
