Senior / Lead Machine Learning Engineer



Software Engineering
Sydney, NSW, Australia
Posted on Wednesday, March 22, 2023


As a Senior or Lead Machine Learning Engineer, you will create optimized, state of the art 3D graphical user interfaces and build physics simulation engines that scale across millions of assets.

As part of this, you will:

  • Develop approaches to generate accurate models from imperfect data using deep learning and classical algorithms
  • Develop approaches for intelligent network scale insights
  • Develop and optimize training pipelines
  • Develop data structures that can perform in real-time with user interaction on large underlying data sets
  • Work with a variety of data sources, including LiDAR, aerial photography & photogrammetry, and structured data.
  • Put your software engineering skills to the test in organizing functionality for many use cases in a complex domain (this is not an "on click button, send RPC" kind of application)
  • Mentor other engineers in best practices


You are a Senior / Lead Machine Learning Engineer with a strong background in software development and machine learning coupled with a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science (or equivalent). You have a superb working knowledge of Python and C++ (Java is a plus). Most of all, you’re passionate about Machine Learning and building best-in-class, complex software solutions. Lastly, you're an expert in Deep Learning and can bring new ideas to the business on how best to solve our customers' unique problems in our software platform.
