Jobs

Machine Learning Engineer

Both cancer and the immune system are complex collections of cells whose interactions are difficult to predict. If you have done research in a top deep learning lab and have built and deployed models used in a high-value application, your skills could improve outcomes for patients enrolled in clinical trials of personalized cancer vaccines and combination immunotherapies.

Our small team of machine learning engineers has skills in programming language theory and distributed array processing. The next member of the team must have a strong background in probability and optimization, experience solving both computer vision and natural language problems with deep neural networks, and the ability to design new deep neural network architectures specific to our applications.

We are seeking someone with significant research and work experience and are able to pay a salary competitive with industry. If you’re interested in learning more about the role, please email hammer@hammerlab.org.

Development Infrastructure Lead

In our quest to improve the immune response to cancer, our small team of software developers and data scientists has developed dozens of software libraries and a few production services. These libraries and services run on the public cloud as well as on a 100-node Hadoop cluster storing petabytes of data that we maintain ourselves. Because most lab members have significant professional software development experience, we’ve been able to share the maintenance burden without a dedicated system administrator or operations developer lead. To ensure our team’s continued productivity, however, we now need to find an individual to lead our work maintaining and improving our development infrastructure.

The ideal candidate will have installed and serviced server and network hardware in a data center, written software to install, configure, and monitor production services, structured the build and release process of high-quality open source software, and secured and governed petabytes of data. We recognize that it’s rare to find an individual with experience in all four of these domains, however, so we are happy to hear from anyone with strong skills in one or two domains and an interest in learning more about and having responsibility for the rest.

We are seeking someone with significant work experience and are able to pay a salary competitive with industry. If you’re interested in learning more about the role, please email hammer@hammerlab.org.
