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.
Applicants must be authorized to work in the United States legally.
