Job Description Summary

If you thrive on being on the cutting edge of innovation - this job is for you! The Artificial Intelligence Lead Developer will be responsible for taking tough business challenges and inventing new ways to solve them. To help you in this effort, you will be leading a team using a toolbox of AI/Automation technologies such as including machine learning, intelligent chatbots, image recognition/computer vision, augmented / virtual reality, machine learning, and robotics process automation. Those are a lot of tools, so what we need is someone who can learn on the go, design scalable architectures, and deliver on objectives with key business metrics in mind.

We're a lean “startup” within an big enterprise, so we have the best of both worlds - the agility of a startup with the challenges and the resources and scale of one of the largest systems in the world. To get us there, we need you to use the newest technologies, test them out in proof of concepts, then help us scale them across the globe. Then it's on to the next innovative idea.

We need a go-getter AI leader who is comfortable spinning up quick proof of concepts and experiments, trying new concepts, and wiring up technical know-how with sometimes unclear requirements. The good news is you won't be doing this alone because you will be key in growing the team. You'll be a thought-leader in a global team and will be asked to mentor junior developers, help them leverage best practices, grow in both leadership and people skills, and help grow our team's reach across a global system of 700,000+ people.
