About the job

FedML, Inc. (https://fedml.ai) is to help people or organizations have AI capability from data anywhere at any scale. FedML stands for “Fundamental Ecosystem Development/Design for Machine Learning” in a broad scope, and “Federated Machine Learning” in a specific scope. At the current stage, FedML is developing and maintaining a machine learning platform that enables zero-code, lightweight, cross-platform, and provably secure federated learning and analytics. It enables machine learning from decentralized data at various users/silos/edge nodes, without the need to centralize any data to the cloud, hence providing maximum privacy and efficiency. It consists of a lightweight and cross-platform Edge AI SDK that is deployable over edge GPUs, smartphones, and IoT devices. Furthermore, it also provides a user-friendly MLOps platform to simplify decentralized machine learning and real-world deployment. FedML supports vertical solutions across a broad range of industries (healthcare, finance, insurance, smart cities, IoT, etc.) and applications (computer vision, natural language processing, data mining, and time-series forecasting). Its core technology is backed by more than 3 years of cutting-edge research of its co-founders, who are recognized leaders in the federated machine learning community.

FedML’s researchers and software engineers develop the next-generation platform for machine learning and artificial intelligence. We’re looking for researchers or engineers who bring fresh ideas from all areas, including machine learning and its applications in compute vision, natural language processing, data mining, as well as large-scale system design and implementation for distributed/cloud computing/systems, security/privacy, mobile/IoT systems, networking, Web UI design and development. As a software engineer, you will work on a specific project critical to our customers’ needs. We hope our engineers to be a faster learner and be enthusiastic to tackle new problems as we continue to push technology forward. You will design, develop, test, deploy, maintain, and enhance software solutions.
