Job functions

What we're looking for
A seasoned Machine Learning Engineer with intelligence, humility, candor, and the ability to thrive in a fast-paced, hyper-growth environment. You like to get things right and ship things quickly, but you can appropriately balance the inherent conflict between the two.
What you'll do
You’ll use your knowledge of data science and machine learning algorithms to help our nimble team solve problems like how we build models to dynamically charge the right price for each of our 35,000 units for each of 540 days into the future, how we rank our units on our search engine results pages in order to maximize guest conversion rate and revenue, and how we estimate how much a prospective home might be able to make as a Vacasa rental based on its characteristics and location.
You’ll be working closely together with a team of data scientists to, in tandem, deploy machine learning models in production. You’ll interact and collaborate with other product engineering teams to integrate such models in a robust, maintainable, performant, and highly-available manner. You’ll be using libraries like Tensor Flow, scikit-learn, pandas, or plotly to test and release models. You’ll also mentor more junior team members, helping them grow into top-notch data scientists and machine learning engineers.
