We are looking for Machine Learning Engineering Managers to join our Conversational AI Group in Menlo Park, CA and Redmond, WA. The Conversational AI group built M, Messenger's in-thread assistant that proactively recommends stickers, polls, restaurants, movie tickets and so much more to more than 1.3 billion people that use Facebook Messenger every month. This journey is only 1% finished, and assistant features within Messenger today represent only initial steps in terms of what we expect a truly social assistant to be able to do in the years ahead. We are looking for candidates interested in advancing the state of the art in Dialog Systems, especially in areas such as Natural Language Understanding, Dialog Management, Natural Language Generation, and Question Answering.
The ideal candidate will have a strong background in developing Dialog systems, a strong knowledge of ML, NLP and neural networks, and have experience working with massive amounts of data. They should also have strong software engineering skills and the ability to build systems that reach Facebook scale.
As an Engineering Manager working within the Assistant Team at Facebook, the ideal candidate will have experience in managing software engineering teams developing Conversation AI systems.
