Partnered with the top technology/real estate company out in Seattle, we are looking to on board a top Principal Machine Learning Engineer/Software Engineer who has worked in big data and can lead high performing teams.

The Principal Machine Learning Engineer will be a strong technical contributor and sit on site out in Seattle and provide technical leadership for other machine learning engineers, data scientists, and analysts as well as lead support for special projects.

You'll follow agile processes with a focus on delivering production ready testable code in small iterations.

Lastly, you'll get to participate in the entire development life cycle from concept to release so we will be looking for prior experience with this! You'll also be responsible for participating in all phases of quality assurance and defect resolution - and step in to offer mentorship and support with the junior members of your team.
