San Francisco, CA, USA
Posted on Tuesday, June 18, 2024


About the Team

Our team is responsible for the “post-training” or alignment of the models behind chatGPT and the API. We integrate various improvements from the rest of the company into our RLHF process ultimately producing the models used by millions of users.

About the Role

We are looking for a research/engineering lead to create the next generation of our model evaluation systems with a focus on evaluation infrastructure. This infrastructure is crucial when producing new models and serves as a key metric we do research against. As the models we produce become more and more capable, evaluation becomes a more and more challenging task and we need your help!

The ideal candidate will have a strong technical background in scientific computing, distributed computing, statistics, and ideally a bit of machine learning. ML research experience is not required but experience in some kind of ML environment is (i.e. applied ML roles).

This role is based in San Francisco, CA. We use a hybrid work model of 3 days in the office per week and offer relocation assistance to new employees.

In this role, you will:

  • Own evaluation infrastructure + visualizations

  • Work with researchers to make evaluation a streamlined and high signal process.

  • Be willing to dive into large, ML codebases to help debug.

  • Optimize performance, and improve observability of the system.

  • Incorporate new kinds of evaluations from academic papers, and internal research ideas.

  • Take ownership over the organization and presentation of results.

You might thrive in this role if you:

  • Are a team player – willing to do a variety of tasks that move the team forward.

  • Experience working in complex technical environments

  • Experience debugging ML systems.

  • Experience with the python

  • Experience with kubernetes / distributed infrastructure

  • Experience with GPU’s

  • Experience with 1 or more large scale data systems such as beam or spark.
