The A&F Corporate Global Data and Integrations DevOps team is searching for an ambitious and gritty Machine Learning Engineer. This person will focus on implementing best-in-class Machine Learning Operations (MLOps) tools and processes for data scientists to leverage in order to enhance reproducibility and resilience of insight products. We are committed to scaling predictive analytics across the organization and MLOps is critical to enabling development cycles for new insight products that don’t get mired by past, high-maintenance projects. MLOps practices will also allow us to systematize best-in-class open source algorithms for delivering value to both internal and external customers. The ML Engineer will demonstrate a deep comprehensive working knowledge of every component of MLOps as well as fundamental Data Engineering practices that will enable them to train other team members to become full-stack, end-to-end data scientists - owning a project from data exploration to model deployment.
