At Nextdoor, machine learning is one of the most important teams we are growing. Machine learning is starting to transform our product through personalization, driving major impact across different parts of our platform including our newsfeed, our notifications, and our ads relevance. Our machine learning team is lean but hungry to drive even more impact and make Nextdoor the neighborhood hub for local exchange. We believe that ML will be an integral part of making Nextdoor valuable to our members. We also believe that ML should be ethical and encourage healthy habits and interaction, not addictive behavior. We are looking for great engineers who believe in the power of the local community to empower our members to make their communities great places to live.
You will be part of a scrappy and impactful team building data-intensive products, working with data and features. You will help build the foundational Machine Learning (ML) infrastructure that ML engineers will use for years to come as we ramp up our effort to introduce machine learning into our platform. You should be comfortable with petabytes of data, writing crisp design documentation, and building, debugging, and maintaining highly available distributed systems. The Machine Learning platform that you build will empower developers throughout Nextdoor to build better ML products more quickly than ever before.
