The Role

Knowledge assets drive important features of the Outreach product. As a Machine Learning Engineer, you will work with other Engineers, and Product Managers to develop algorithms, build data pipelines, and low latency query services. You will be responsible for the full lifecycle of the products.

We’re currently shoring up the core functionalities of our product. In the long term we want to give our customers the ability to optimize and constantly improve how they interact with customers. Our services will learn from the customer’s interactions and assist the customers by bringing that knowledge to them in real-time. These efforts present a diverse gamut of work that will help enhance Outreach’s competitive edge by making our customers more effective.

Your Daily Adventures Will Include

    • Working with different data sources and data types and streams of spoken text to extract structure data.
    • Analyzing the input data and performance of data extraction algorithms.
    • Evaluating the quality of Knowledge Assets and developing techniques to continuously improve their quality.

    • Working with stakeholders to make sure our customers have the tools they need to be successful on our platform
    • Finding quick ways to prototype and test possible solutions to large problems
    • Looking up and down the stack for the best return on investment for any given pain point
    • Working on one of the most visible parts of Outreach’s product - to both our customers and the rest of our organization
