System1 is looking for an experienced machine learning practitioner to join our data science and machine learning team as a Principal Machine Learning Scientist supporting the AI Automation & Optimization team. This is an individual contributor role focused on driving research and development of new cutting-edge machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms that power automation and optimization capabilities for one of the biggest real-time acquisition marketing platforms in the world - reaching 100s of millions of users every month.
The ideal candidate will have experience designing and building algorithms to automate and optimize planning and decisioning for complex dynamic systems with imperfect information. You should keep up with the latest academic research and developments in reinforcement learning (e.g. MuZero, AlphaStar, growing-tree counterfactual regret minimization, etc) and stochastic black box optimization and understand how these algorithms can be applied to automate and optimize execution of large-scale advertising campaigns to balance both performance and portfolio risk.
With billions of data points ingested daily and the ability to impact and automate millions of critical decisions that drive the core of our business, this is a unique opportunity to build new advanced ML and AI capabilities at a company that still innovates at the pace of a startup but has the data and scale of a successful billion dollar company!
