Staff/Sr. Staff Machine Learning Engineer

Calico Life Sciences

This is a Full-time position in South San Francisco, CA posted December 21, 2021.

Who we are:

Calico is a research and development company whose mission is to harness advanced technologies and model systems to increase our understanding of the biology that controls lifespan.

We will use that knowledge to devise interventions that enable people to lead longer and healthier lives.

Executing on this mission will require an unprecedented level of interdisciplinary effort and a long-term focus for which funding is already in place.

Position description:

Calico is seeking a senior/senior staff machine learning engineer to design, develop, and productionize machine learning algorithms and software tools to model macromolecule sequences and structures.  This person will work with a team of dedicated experimental biologists to design experiments to test, and iteratively refine machine learning predictions.

The ideal candidate should be familiar with state-of-the-art machine learning techniques, including, for example, language/sequence modeling, representation learning, generative models, and self-supervised learning techniques.

Candidates should have experience implementing, extending, and debugging state of the art machine learning models, and have expertise in designing and building robust data infrastructure and tools.

Candidates will need to be autonomous in learning and applying the latest methods from deep learning literature.

Candidates must demonstrate a strong ability to communicate ideas and results through publications and presentations and be able to work cross-functionally to execute on complex projects.
