Moogsoft, the leader in AIOps, is seeking a talented and self-driven engineer to lead its Advanced Algorithms team. The Advanced Algorithms team is tasked with implementing and deploying a wide variety of different algorithms at scale.

This is a very exciting team to work in : we implement and deploy algorithms from information theory, classical AI, statistical ML, graph theory, deep learning / neural networks, NLP etc.

  • The role is somewhat inter-disciplinary. The successful candidate is expected to be a very active contributor to the code-base;
  • to have a key role in architectural decisions; whilst also taking on a leadership role. As the team and company grow, the leadership and managerial aspects will become the key focus.

    In addition to being a strong leader and manager, the ideal candidate will possess advanced software development skills alongside strong mathematics and computer science skills.

    A fundamental understanding of complex algorithms like those mentioned above is required and the candidate must be proficient in and have demonstrable experience of implementing these algorithms in a distributed and parallelized fashion in a cloud-native environment.

    While we value the ability to code in and learn multiple programming languages and environments, expertise of Java backend development in a UNIX environment is essential.

    We are not stipulating a minimum or maximum number of years of industry experience and we will take each case on its merits, however, our expectation is that candidates will have upwards of 8 years experience with approximately 3 of those in a leadership position.
