Overview

Urbint is an AI-first SaaS company. Our mission is to make communities more resilient by identifying areas of high risk and preventing catastrophic loss for utilities and infrastructure operators across the country. We are a team of close-knit engineers and entrepreneurs who obsess over problem-solving, new technologies, and making a positive impact in our communities.

We encourage people from underrepresented groups to apply.

Job Summary 

We find meaning and excitement solving real world problems, and we hope you do, too. At Urbint, the machine learning team does not work on making consumers spend more or on maximizing clicks. We get to make an impact with our work by reducing carbon emissions and infrastructure risk, and even saving lives.

We are looking for a “product fluent” ML leader to join our high visibility, high impact team to help with this mission. The ML team collaborates with a diverse, broader-mission team to deliver value for our customers.  Members of the Machine Learning team have the option to major/minor in areas from a large data science specialization spectrum: Technical Product Management, People Management, Data Story-Telling,  Applied ML, ML Research, AutoML (Algo/Performance)  and MLOps (DE, SRE). This is a great role for someone who enjoys variety and is also looking to expand their skill set in a structured fashion.

While research is an important aspect of machine learning, we are not an R&D only team. We deploy models, and are able to measure and quantify the real-world impact.
