AI Instructor
San Juan, Puerto Rico

Read Full Description

AI is transforming every industry and has the potential to change our world. We believe that it’s important that the talent to drive this transformation should come from beyond just Silicon Valley.

We have created a seed-stage startup training people from outside Silicon Valley for jobs in Machine Learning.

Our team has collectively educated more people in machine learning than any other organization in the world, and we are now applying that expertise to a new type of startup.

We will be starting with a blended-learning program in Puerto Rico and scaling quickly from there. In this role, you will lead our on-the-ground training in Puerto Rico and be solely responsible for its success.

You will own constructing the curriculum, lead training sessions with students, and intervene when students face obstacles. You will work closely with Andrew Ng.

Here’s what you will do:

  • Organize content for a world-class, blended-learning program to train existing engineers to become machine-learning engineers within six months
  • Lead live training program with students and intervene to overcome any obstacles to 100% completion.
  • Hold office hours daily to address trainees’ questions, lead several general workshops a week, and make immediate tweaks if students are not learning subjects at a fast enough pace.
  • Lead technical interview process to recruit highly motivated candidates who can become extraordinary machine-learning engineers

Here’s the background we’d like you to have:

  • Proven ability to explain complex concepts clearly to a diverse audience: You should be able to take concepts that are tricky, understand why they trip people up, and teach them to a group of people from a variety of different backgrounds.  
  • Experience working on deployment as a machine learning engineer: We are designing this program to place students in jobs as machine-learning engineers. Students will often have questions about how things work in practice, and having in the trenches experience will allow you to guide them easily.
  • Ability to identify and anticipate challenges of students going through a rigorous machine learning experience: A key part of the job is ensuring students don’t get stuck in a very fast paced environment. You should sense and, ideally anticipate, when students might run into problems. This doesn’t necessarily mean you have to have prior teaching experience, but you should be able to form an accurate picture of the feelings and motivations of those around you.  
  • Huge pride in the American citizens of Puerto Rico and their future: We intend for this program to play a large role in turning Puerto Rico into the world’s “AI Island.” You should be excited about helping to make this dream a reality.

We hope you will fit well with our team’s culture:

  • Prioritize Identify your most important tasks for moving the fund forward, and focus on them. Make sure you can stack rank according to priority, communicate out your priorities, and say “no” or “not now” appropriately to low priority items.
  • Execute fast  Move quickly. Set ambitious but realistic deadlines, communicate them out, and stick to it. Don’t take two days to do what can be done in one day, nor two months to do what can be done in one. Startups live or die by their ability to execute, pivot, and grow faster than anyone else.
  • Work hard Startups are a lot of work to build. A core advantage startups have over established companies is that they are willing to work much harder, and so can do much more. Lean in and do the work needed to give them the best chance of success.
  • Own the outcome Raise all fund-related issues directly. Propose solutions to any issue, including higher-level problems that are “outside your job scope.” We’re a small team and you are empowered to try to make anything better.
  • Be helpful Leverage your team’s expertise and be generous in helping others in our ecosystem of companies. Let others help you too, and state your needs clearly to empower others to assist you.
  • Keep improving Be receptive and welcome feedback. Keep looking for opportunities to learn. Keep investing in learning. Set high standards and reach for them.

What We Have to Offer:

  • Free snacks, drinks, lunches and dinners daily
  • 401(k) plan with match and immediate vesting after 6 months
  • Untracked PTO including a week off between Christmas and New Year’s
  • Variety of medical, dental and vision coverage to choose from
  • Monthly education budget
  • Commuter benefits
  • Collegial atmosphere
  • Direct and transparent communication style
  • Empowered to be the best you can beInnovative environment
  • Work with global AI Leaders

We are searching for a Fund Engineer who has outstanding technical and communication skills backed by an entrepreneurial spirit. This opportunity is a great match for someone excited about working across a breadth of AI business models and developing an expertise in the earliest stages of entrepreneurship.

This person will be a technical advisor to each early stage idea we work to validate. They will develop a point of view about what is technically promising and what isn’t.

  • Diligence: Work to structure problems into a machine learning framework and develop a perspective on the technical feasibility of potential solutions based on current practices and the latest research.
  •  Prototyping: The engineer may advise on data collection best practices. In certain cases, once we acquire data, the engineer may build out rough prototypes in order to help us technically validate certain parts of the proposed solution.
  • Customer-facing: Our customers often raise technical questions in our meetings, and it’s important that the engineer be able to address them cogently and in real-time. This will require strong communication skills and an ability to convey technical issues to a non-technical audience.

You must be able to select the correct direction in terms of what NLP architecture to use for different problems and how to deal with and organize the data for model training and evaluation. In addition you are expected to be able to communicate engineering effort and issues to the business team and work with them to best help fit the partner/customer needs. You should have strong technical and non-technical communication skills and display an ability to convey complex technical topics to non-technical people without a machine learning background.
  • Quickly master technical and non-technical industry specifics. We will be working with customers across a number of verticals with well defined and vocabularies and specific nuances. It will be critical for you to ramp up on terminology and functions of the industry. You should be excited about throwing yourself into learning these technical and non-technical industry characteristics.

We hope you will fit well with our team’s culture:

  • Prioritize Identify your most important tasks for moving the fund forward, and focus on them. Make sure you can stack rank according to priority, communicate out your priorities, and say “no” or “not now” appropriately to low priority items.
  • Execute fast  Move quickly. Set ambitious but realistic deadlines, communicate them out, and stick to it. Don’t take two days to do what can be done in one day, nor two months to do what can be done in one. Startups live or die by their ability to execute, pivot, and grow faster than anyone else.
  • Work hard Startups are a lot of work to build. A core advantage startups have over established companies is that they are willing to work much harder, and so can do much more. Lean in and do the work needed to give them the best chance of success.
  • Own the outcome Raise all fund-related issues directly. Propose solutions to any issue, including higher-level problems that are “outside your job scope.” We’re a small team and you are empowered to try to make anything better.
  • Be helpful Leverage your team’s expertise and be generous in helping others in our ecosystem of companies. Let others help you too, and state your needs clearly to empower others to assist you.
  • Keep improving Be receptive and welcome feedback. Keep looking for opportunities to learn. Keep investing in learning. Set high standards and reach for them.

Read Full Description

AI is the new electricity: Just as electricity transformed numerous industries starting 100 years ago, AI is now poised to do the same. AI Fund is a startup studio building new AI companies from the ground up. Our companies bridge AI technology and applications, focusing on industries and problems that we believe move the world forward. Founded by Dr. Andrew Ng, our team merges a deep understanding of AI technology with a proven ability to start new ventures. We have a unique business model that prepares founding members of a portfolio company with technical validation of the idea, experienced back office operational support and our team’s AI know how as well as connections within the AI community. This is an excellent opportunity for you to get in on the ground floor of an exciting AI Venture Firm and through it, grow its portfolio.

Here is what you will do

  • You’ll be the first point of contact to help AI Fund identify and reach out to qualified candidates. You’ll play a key role in making sure we are consistently finding strong candidates, often from unexpected places.
  • You’ll coordinate and monitor the full interview process. You’ll manage our candidate tracking system, and assist hiring managers in setting up and running their searches to a successful conclusion and  ensuring a superior candidate experience.
  • You’ll work with stakeholders at AI Fund to understand their hiring needs, and design searches to meet those needs. This will mean working with a large pool of candidates and being comfortable creating a process to place them in a wide variety of positions.
  • You’ll develop relationships with candidates to understand their motivation and career goals. You’ll explain the company’s mission and cultural values, and how it fits with where they would like to go with their career.
  • You’ll help develop sourcing and recruiting tactics to suit the unique needs of AI Fund's  growing team, and be responsible for bringing in strong candidates for both full-time and contract hires.
  • You’ll generate robust candidate pipeline for executive (and some non-executive) roles through disciplined, measured, and customized outreach strategies including personal network, events, LinkedIn/Github/Quora, social media, blogs, research, and on-campus events where appropriate.

Here are the skills you should have:

  • Ability to network or already have a strong network of people to source from.
  • Experience in turning all of your contacts into recruiters to help you source.
  • Excellent interpersonal ability; strong communications and relationship skills.
  • Operational excellence. We expect you to be able to manage an efficient recruiting process - scheduling, interviews, offers - for multiple candidates simultaneously and constantly identify ways to improve the candidate experience.
  • Creativity. We do things a little differently in our recruiting programs. We hope you can step away from the day­-to­-day, see the bigger picture, and help us develop innovative programs to improve our recruiting practice.
  • Attention to detail and multi-tasking. You’ll be juggling a lot of important projects at once. It will be important both drive them forward quickly and to pay attention to the details so balls don’t get dropped.
  • Familiarity with applicant tracking systems, including Lever, is a plus.
