About the Company

This is a unique opportunity to get on a team of an Industrial AI start-up founded by a Stanford professor and led by recognized thought leaders in AI/ML and aerospace analytics.

Our main product is enterprise SaaS for supply chain in aircraft fleet maintenance. The product is built around proprietary AI Engines and allows for easy customers data integration.

The company has won substantial repeat business from US Air Force Supply Chain operations that sustains the world largest aircraft fleet. We are looking to leverage our proven military customer product into substantial growth in the short term, and an M&A exit in the medium term. We are a technology leader in Enterprise AI for supply chain with strong customer pull and the probability of fast win is high.

Job Description

The ‘Rocket Science’ processes for our mission-critical Explainable AI (xAI) involve rigorous cross validation of data, AI testing, verification, and validation. Custom developed AI/ML algorithms are packaged as integrated AI Engines. Our lean team is looking for an AI Operations Engineer who will be ultimately responsible for the AI Engines, their integration in the cloud app product, and customer interfaces.

A successful candidate will understand what our app does, customer business cases, how the AI works, and help make feature development and DevOps processes work smoothly. Depending on the interests and experience, this position may become more data engineering, AI Engines, customer business, cloud computing, or product management oriented.

You will start in a part-time consulting position at a competitive hourly rate. As your contributions add up and the business grows, you will have an opportunity to transition to full-time.

Main Responsibilities:

  • Develop and support AI Engines using core AI functions. This includes AI results presentation, internal and external interfaces, engineering documentation, and AI customization to address customer issues.
  • Support data engineering, data consistency checking, and preprocessing pipelines that produce AI metadata from raw data
  • Support scalable AI deployment. The analytics pipeline includes aerospace grade algorithm verification | test coverage | reporting logic | compilation and build. It produces object code and resource files that feed into DevSecOps pipeline for cloud app.
  • Interface with and support cloud software team that deals with Analytics Engine as a black box with well-defined API.
  • Occasionally interface with customers on data issues, analysis result interpretation, and, eventually, on business value of the AI analytics.
  • Document and coordinate improvement for components, products, and processes.
