We have an exciting opportunity for a Sr. Software Development Engineer to serve as a technical leader and hands-on contributor in the Japan Consumer Experience (JPCX) team. While JPCX will be your home, your influence will reach across the Japan Consumer Technology organization, providing consultation and coaching support across several teams. In addition, this role will be focused on bringing Machine Learning capabilities to the org, by working with Data Scientists to design and deploy effective Machine Learning strategies.
The ideal candidate needs to have strong technical influence with peers across the globe, junior engineers on the team and senior leadership and thus requires strong communication skills (to both business and technical partners). Creating a reliable, scalable, and high performance service requires exceptional technical expertise, a sound understanding of the fundamentals of Computer Science, how the Web works, and practical experience building web-based applications on large-scale distributed systems are prerequisites to be successful in this job. You should be somebody who enjoys working on complex software systems, is customer-centric, and feels strongly about building and operationalizing good software. You should also have demonstrated hands-on experience building and deploying Machine Learning systems (with an emphasis on taking ML models and turning them into scalable, quantifiable, production systems).
