What does a typical day look like for a Machine Learning Engineer?

We’re an AI company, so machine learning is a very important role. Our Machine Learning Engineers are involved in ML projects end-to-end, from ideation and conceptualization all the way to model deployment and release. If you are looking to gain experience in the full life cycle of machine learning, then harrison.ai is a great place to learn and grow.

We asked Leo (one of our ML Engineers) to describe a typical day here. “That’s very dependent on which stage of the ML process you’re working on. This could range from data acquisition, to data labelling, model training, pipeline building, model evaluation, model deployment, model release, and more.”

“One of the benefits of working at harrison.ai is that you are able to focus on your personal interests. You may find yourself working on experimentations, testing model architectures, or you may wish to improve ML operations through automated build and release pipelines – whatever sparks your interest!” says Leo.

What technologies do we use?

Cutting-edge technology is at the heart of what we do. At harrison, we mainly use computer vision and supervised learning to aid in patient diagnosis. This involves open-source libraries such as PyTorch for deep learning and OpenCV for ​​real-time computer vision. Since we run heavy workloads, we also use Ray to productionize and scale our ML workloads. For ML Engineers who like to get involved on the ops side, there is the opportunity to work with Kubernetes, Terraform and cloud technologies.

What’s the team structure and culture?

“We’ve adopted the Squad Model at harrison,” says Leo. “A squad is made up of an ML Engineer, a Software/Data Engineer, a DevOps Engineer, and a Clinical AI specialist. Our squads have a spirit of communication, collaboration, and teamwork. What unites us all, is our passion for healthcare and AI.” 

Joining harrison.ai gives you an opportunity to work with like-minded people who are extremely talented, passionate about our mission, and great to work with. As described by Leo, the work here is “exciting, impactful, and motivating!”
