If you're a Machine Learning Architect and enjoy solving complex, enterprise-scale data challenges, you'll love phData. Our talented team of Data Scientists and Machine Learning Engineers serve as key technical leaders to help customers (including best brands in the world) gain tangible value from their data. And best of all, our award-winning culture is ideal for folks who enjoy collaboration, learning and growth in an entrepreneurial environment.

Machine Learning Architects are the Swiss army knives of machine learning. They're ready for anything, and they bring all the tools to ensure that machine learning models see the light of day. They own the infrastructure and deployment plan - from making sure data science models can actually be built using customer data to deploying them into a production environment, and everything in between.

At phData, Machine Learning Architects are responsible for designing and implementing data solutions best-suited to deliver on our customer needs and use cases - from streaming, to data lakes, to analytics, and beyond across a progressively evolving technical stack. They provide thought leadership by recommending the right technologies and solutions for a given use case, from the application layer to infrastructure; and they have the team leadership and coding skills (e.g. Python, Java, and Scala) to get their solutions into production - and to help ensure performance, security, scalability, and robust data integration.
