Locals.org is a new app with a mission to connect people in real life to enjoy time together. We help our users to make new, meaningful connections by hosting and joining real-life, offline experiences.
We are a growing startup with a team of 40+ (working remotely) and a few thousand active users. We're looking to hire a Machine Learning Engineer to join our Personalization team of 2.
Your goal will be to improve user engagement by delivering the most relevant content to each user. This includes feed ranking (to recommend the best experiences on the main screen of the app), push notifications, contact ranking, friend suggestions. We're just at the beginning of our journey, so you'll have an opportunity to start from scratch with simple heuristics and models and gradually improve them as our user base grows.
You will work through the full lifecycle: collect the right data, explore it, extract insights and make hypotheses, perform feature engineering, train and evaluate models, launch A/B tests, make conclusions based on metrics (and propose and evaluate those metrics) and feedback, communicate them to stakeholders, deploy production services and integrate them with the rest of the backend, implement monitoring and alerting, fix live issues if necessary.
Would be nice if you also:
