Machine Learning Engineer

| Greater NYC Area

At White Ops, we’re all hackers. This doesn’t mean you have to hold a key to the internet (although one of our founders does!), but it does require approaching problems in unconventional ways. We are attacking criminal botnets through the ad fraud that finances their operations. Our proprietary technology detects and prevents sophisticated online fraud. By reducing the incentives for crime, we are making the internet a better place. Our mighty team of humans have several things in common:
We are hackers.
We create tau for ourselves and each other.
We think big and move fast.
We practice humility.
We “pwn it”.
Our mission at White Ops is to verify the humanity of every online transaction. Our core technology is human verification, the ability to distinguish human vs non human activity in a variety of environments and applications.
We are looking for people who love machine learning to join our growing team. Through our critical growth stage it is important that you approach old problems with fresh ideas and recognize the benefits and flaws in our current mode of operation. You will join a detection team comprised of hackers, data scientists, threat analysts, and software engineers that build the brain inside our products. The data is big, the adversaries are smart and the opportunity for innovation is beyond imagination.
Who you are…

  • You have a strong sense of ownership which drives you to find ways to do things better, faster, and cheaper.
  • You look to find new and innovative ways to solve complex problems through rigorous experimentation, all by yourself.
  • You are open, transparent and work in tight collaboration with anyone.
  • You constantly drive for correctness and performance, in that order.
  • You are a machine learning expert and have solved difficult problems to prove it.

What you will be doing…

  • Develop machine learning models and improve existing ones to enhance our detection capabilities.
  • Work with different teams across White Ops to productize your solutions.
  • Own the entire lifecycle: Research. Design. Experiment. Build. Deploy. Monitor. Maintain.
  • Read research papers and apply state-of-the-art techniques in our problem set.

What you will need...

  • Track record of deploying machine learning models in highly performant environments with large amounts of complex data.
  • Proficiency with Python and Tensorflow.
  • Familiarity with tools, libraries and platforms such as Pandas, Numpy, Keras, Tensorflow, Spark.
  • Knowledge of how the internet works.
  • Knowledge of how web browsers work.

We understand it takes a diverse team of highly intelligent, passionate, curious, and creative people to solve the challenges involved in protecting the Internet. Our dynamic team of humans have incredible perspectives to share, just as we know you do, and we take great pride in being an equal opportunity workplace.

An Insider's view of White Ops

What are some social events your company does?

We regularly host guest speakers, organize monthly social gatherings, and have ad hoc happy hours weekly. Every six months, we put together a company "on-site" at one of our global office locations as a way to socialize and share knowledge. Each team also organizes their own outings, off-sites, and attends conferences frequently.

Virginia

Director of Talent

What does your typical day look like?

I start my day with code reviews then have a standup with my team to go over tasks undertakings. A bit of brainstorming and pair programming with one of the developers which leads to a nice break involving lunch/snacks and/or video gaming/card games with the team and then I'll finish up tasks or carry over the remaining tasks to the following day.

What are some things you learned at the company?

Exceptional culture and mission can enable us to live meaningfully and accomplish the greatest work of our lives. If I’m spending 1/3 of my waking hours working, I want to solve complex problems and design experiences that make the world a better place with a team that inspires me to be the best version of myself. I discovered part of my ataraxia!

Diana

UX/UI Researcher & Designer

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

We always encourage team members to experiment with new technologies and explore their use cases in our products. We know that technology is ever changing and never stays the same. If you are not pushing forward then you are probably going backward. That's why we are creating a culture that encourages creativity and innovation
