Research Engineer, Applied ML (Mountain View)

Mountain View

The DeepMind Applied group collaborates with teams at Google and elsewhere to apply our cutting-edge research to products and infrastructure used by many millions of people across the world.

We’re very proud to already have very close partnerships with many teams at Google, with a diverse portfolio of projects touching many Google product areas.

Our new DeepMind Applied team in Mountain View will engage in much of this important work with our partners at Google, in close collaboration with the DeepMind team back in London.  

The Applied team in Mountain View will be made up of a mixture of software engineers and research scientists who work together to solve real-world problems at Google-scale.

As an Applied Researcg Engineer, you’ll design and build the infrastructure, tools, and libraries needed to train, experiment, debug, and launch machine learning models at scale. You’ll work closely with engineers and scientists from our team and from product teams to deploy our models in their serving stacks. You’ll assist in running and analysing live experiments and full launches. Due to the focus of the role on systems and infrastructure no prior machine learning experience is necessary.

As a full-time member of DeepMind, you will work in close partnership with the London DeepMind Applied team. You will be encouraged, especially early on, to spend as much time as is practical in London.

DeepMind Applied uses TensorFlow as our main infrastructure. The London team has been seeded with several senior ex-Googlers and DeepMind Applied’s code practices and processes are very much aligned with Google’s.

The role will suit candidates who enjoy metrics-driven work, building momentum through successive experiments and launches anywhere, such as Google Play, and who wish to immerse themselves in some of the most cutting-edge ML and AI research.

If you believe you belong to any of the categories of protected veterans listed below, please indicate by making the appropriate selection. As a government contractor subject to Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA), we request this information in order to measure the effectiveness of the outreach and positive recruitment efforts we undertake pursuant to VEVRAA. Classification of protected categories is as follows:

A "disabled veteran" is one of the following: a veteran of the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service who is entitled to compensation (or who but for the receipt of military retired pay would be entitled to compensation) under laws administered by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs; or a person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service-connected disability.

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Form CC-305
OMB Control Number 1250-0005
Expires 1/31/2020

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?

You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.

Disabilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Blindness
  • Deafness
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Epilepsy
  • Autism
  • Cerebral palsy
  • HIV/AIDS
  • Schizophrenia

Reasonable Accommodation Notice

Federal law requires employers to provide reasonable accommodation to qualified individuals with disabilities.

Examples of reasonable accommodation include making a change to the application process or work procedures, providing documents in an alternate format, using a sign language interpreter, or using specialized equipment.
