Facebook Bootcamp : Good ML teams

Intel PYNG74
Oct 22, 2018 12 Comments

I will be joining FB in a month (E4 SDE level). I was interviewed in the ML track, however got the offer for a generalist role. So, I will have to go through the bootcamp and choose a team. I was told by my recruiter that given my ML experience, I should be easily able to get into any ML team. I want the role to have both engineering (~70%) and modelling (~30%) involved Which ML teams should I be watching out for? Need suggestions 😀

    Integrity teams usually have lot of ML related projects. Look at community integrity

      Oh cool. Awesome. What about FAIR and AML?

      AML and FAIR have pure ML roles. If you want mix of product and ML then those are not a good fit

      What teams would you suggest with a mix of both?

      I am not very inclined towards integrity teams too. I am more interested in search, ranking or recommendations domain. Any teams working in these?

      Yeah. I think the levelling is based on both your YOE and system deisgn interview performance.

    What's generalist role? Would you be doing SWE work as opposed to ML work?

      A generalist role means that you are recruited to a general pipeline, and you are free to choose whatver team you wish. If the team likes you, you are in. It could be a sde work or pure ML work.
