The Machine Learning Software Engineer 3 will be responsible for building machine learning models and systems to improve game quality and solve complex software engineering problems. You will work cross-functionally with game designers, artists, and other software engineers to identify opportunities where machine learning can enhance game development and quality verification workflows. This role requires hands-on coding expertise in Python and machine learning frameworks like PyTorch or TensorFlow, as well as strong software engineering skills.


  • Work with stakeholders to identify opportunities where machine learning can improve game quality or developer productivity

  • Research, design, and implement neural network architectures and other machine learning models

  • Build end-to-end machine learning systems, including data collection/labeling, training pipelines, model deployment, and monitoring

  • Optimize model performance through techniques like hyperparameter tuning, loss function design, and architecture design

  • Write clean, well-documented, well-tested code that integrates smoothly with existing codebases

  • Debug models and analyze results to uncover insights and incrementally improve systems

  • Clearly communicate complex technical concepts and tradeoffs to non-technical stakeholders

  • Stay up-to-date on advancements in deep learning and adjacent fields through self-study, conferences, etc

Required Skills:

  • 5+ years professional software engineering experience

  • Strong Python programming skills and expertise in ML frameworks like PyTorch, TensorFlow

  • Experience building, debugging, and shipping end-to-end ML systems

  • Proficiency in software engineering best practices: version control, testing, code review, etc

  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, or equivalent experience

  • Excellent communication and collaboration skills

Preferred Skills:

  • Background in computer vision, natural language processing, or other relevant ML domains

  • Experience applying ML to games or interactive 3D environments

  • Proficiency with C++ for understanding and modifying game code

  • Knowledge of game development processes and pipelines

  • Master's degree in CS or related technical field

Performance Competencies:

  • Ability to take vague requirements and design effective ML solutions

  • Solid judgement and intuition on when ML is (or is not) appropriate for a problem

  • Resourcefulness and curiosity to learn new techniques independently as needed

  • Focus on shipping production ML systems, not just prototypes

  • Advocate for best practices in testing, documentation, ethics, and technical debt management

  • Eagerness to mentor and share ML knowledge across the organization
