Open Source Fullstack Engineer

The Opportunity

AI is rapidly changing the world. From processing job applications and credit decisions to making content recommendations and helping researchers analyze genetic markers at scale, many aspects of our daily lives are touched by machine learning systems in some way.

Arize is a leading machine learning observability platform that helps ML teams discover issues, diagnose problems, and improve the results of machine learning models. In short, we are here to build world-class open-source software that empowers AI practitioners and streamlines ML operations workflows.

The Team

Our Open-Source Engineering team develops and maintains the open-source libraries and tools that powers Arize and Arize-Phoenix, an ML Observability platform that runs in a python notebook. We leverage technologies such as Starlette, GraphQL, Pandas, and UMAP to provide a powerful EDA and fine-tuning workflow within a Python notebook. As part of this team, you'll have the opportunity to contribute to cutting-edge open-source projects and shape the future of ML and LLM development

You will have a significant impact on the success of our company in this highly technical space. You'll not only contribute to projects but also help shape the team's culture, structure, and practices as we scale.

What You’ll Do

  • Develop and maintain a high-quality open-source Python package that is a key part of Arize's ML observability offering.
  • Write clean, efficient, and maintainable Python code that scales with increasing data volume and user demands.
  • Design and build APIs specific to ML workflows, ensuring seamless integration with popular Python-based ML frameworks.
  • Leverage large language models and model outputs such as embeddings to build novel troubleshooting workflows.
  • Utilize techniques such as UMAP and HDBSCAN to create powerful visualizations for embeddings.
