Director of Artificial Intelligence/ CONSUMER technology

Boston, MA · Job # 8945BK

  Our client is an Early-stage VC funded consumer hardware company searching for a Director of AI. You will join the executive team and report into the CEO.


Our client would like:

    • You have battle scars from having gone deep in the weeds of the dual black arts of function approximation and nonlinear optimization.
    • You have a PhD. Background is in CS or Mechanical Engineering. 
    • You are excited to mentor young, brilliant, and hardworking engineers on your team.
    • You are looking forward to splitting your time between teaching, learning, delegating, and rolling up your sleeves and wrestling with implementation details or writing code.


What is happening today:


AI + Engineering

The AI team works closely with a partner engineering team to turn these methods into robust, maintainable, performant code that ships to the field. This is not a research group; today’s ideas from the AI team’s whiteboard will be live with customers in just a couple of months. Our stack depends heavily on convolutional neural networks, tree search, and more recently: convex optimization and policy gradients.


Own the Project

Today, the founders work together to accomplish what is better left to a single new leader, one that has a greater working knowledge of key methods developed in the last 5 years.

We are adding this role so that a single person can take ownership of the AI roadmap and architecture, manage and recruit the AI team, make good bets on which methods to explore, and ultimately: make our consumer product more productive with live customers.
