We’re looking for a mission-oriented machine learning engineer to help build the recommendation engine for middle-skilled mobility

This role would evolve into a technical leadership position in the company.
Our ideal candidate is someone who is:
We are based in Boston, but there are no geographic requirements for this role. Candidates must have work authorization for the US. We are committed to building a team with diverse perspectives and experiences.
