Your contribution will impact how Honey provides a better way to buy and make money more fair for everyone.

What you will do:

•    You develop and ship machine learning solutions for automatic predictions and decisions, and personalized user experiences. 

•    You contribute to improving and maintaining our common tools and infrastructure. 

•    You also have a team of extraordinary colleagues to help figure out problems and share best practices and learnings. 

•    You demonstrate strong bias for action, accountability and can-do mentality.

•    You embrace continuous learning and share learnings with other members of the Honey and PayPal. 

•    You challenge status quo and continuously find ways to innovate and scale systems. 


About You:

•    You have hands-on experience of implementing production machine learning systems, and a solid understanding of ML theory. 

•    You write production-grade code following software engineering best practices, such as maintaining high test coverage, well documented and readable code. 

•    You are comfortable working in cross functional teams and on products with short development cycles and quickly evolving priorities. 

•    You are fluent in Python and open to learning new languages. 

•    You are pragmatic, product-focused, and passionate about the end results, not just the techniques used to get there. 

•    You are comfortable explaining complex results, models, and methods to both technical and non-technical audiences. 

•    Additionally, if you have used data pipelining tools such as Apache Spark or Apache Beam/Google DataFlow, in an AWS or GCP environment, let us know. If not, we will be happy to help you get started.
