Onfido is hiring a

DevOps Engineer (ML Infrastructure)

London, United Kingdom

Group: Technology | Function: Engineering | Team: ML Infrastructure

We’re looking for a DevOps Engineer to help us grow and scale the platform that powers our machine learning research. Our ML Infrastructure team’s goal is to build a world-class research platform; we design, build and deploy libraries, infrastructure and services to enable our researchers to rapidly experiment, invent and prove their ideas.

Machine learning and computer vision are at the heart of Onfido’s products. The platform our researchers use plays a crucial role in how we ship products. The better the platform, the more scope our ML experts have to invent, validate and explore new ideas - which in turn, accelerates product development. Some examples of work in the ML Infrastructure team:

  • Providing simple APIs for scaling up large-scale, parallel training jobs
  • Systems for managing, tracking and sharing experiment results
  • Applications and tools for managing, storing, searching and annotating large amounts of data, such as experiment results
  • Designing techniques to validate and test experiment output
  • Designing infrastructure that maximises the security and privacy of sensitive data
  • Utilising multiple clouds to find cost and data efficient solutions for large-scale compute jobs

We’re looking for someone who is passionate about building solid, reliable infrastructure and has a keen sense of user understanding and empathy - you’ll be working directly with your users! In this role, you will:

  • Work in tight collaboration with our machine learning research teams to help them solve problems, improve productivity, and scale up their work
  • Design, develop, deploy and improve the infrastructure of our ML platform
  • Ensure robustness, security and scalability of our ML infrastructure and supporting tools

THE COMPANY

We’re building the new identity standard for the internet.

Whether you want to open a bank account or hire a car, our lives are moving online. That means millions of everyday interactions now happen digitally—without ever meeting anyone face-to-face. Increasingly, our identities are becoming the new currency which we use to access online services. But with half the world being unbanked, and identity fraud on the rise, that’s becoming more and more difficult. So our mission is to create an open world, where identity is the key to access.

We use machine learning to assess whether a user’s government-issued ID is genuine or fraudulent, and then compare it against their facial biometrics. As a global leader in computer vision, our AI learns to identity fraud as it evolves over time. Our goal is to apply cutting-edge research to build powerful, simple products that drive inclusion and safety online—without compromising on user privacy.

That’s how we give companies like Revolut, Zipcar and Bitstamp the assurance they need to onboard users remotely and securely across 195 countries… and we’re just getting started!

Founded in 2012, we're a diverse, global team of 250 technologists spread across 6 countries. We've also received over $60m in funding from world-class technology investors including Salesforce and Microsoft.

You can learn more about our team and the work we do on our Onfido blog.

  • Python, Ruby and Elixir for our service code
  • React and Redux for frontend work
  • Tensorflow for Machine Learning / Computer Vision
  • Kubernetes and Docker to package and run services
  • AWS for underlying infrastructure
