Hi, I am working as an intern and looking for a new role in Machine Learning or data science. I an very much passionate about this field and always take out time to study about it. The problem is, because I do not have a PhD, the opportunities are limited.

Can someone help me which companies to target and where to look for?

Thanks

    For ML Engineer, PhD is not required. But you need to have some experience with large-scale data system, either computing or storage .

      Could you name some technologies you learnt? And how deep do you understand these technologies?

      So, I have worked on projects involving Neural Networks, SVM’s, Q-learning, tensor flow, AWS, keras, deep learning, other than these ML algorithms, I have worked with SQL, JS and other stuff to handle data in cloud

      I see. Seems you fit more as a data scientist or SWE on the ML application side. Our ML engineers' skillset tends to be more system focused. They know technologies like AllReduce, MapReduce, job scheduling, parameter server, lambda architecture, CAP/RUM conjecture, tools like Hadoop, Spark, Cassandra, Kafka, Zookeeper, MPI, XGBoost, Tensorflow.

    I heard Airbnb has a great program to help with internal learning instead of looking outside for phds

      May be that's why their ML is so busted. I interviewed their, the experience was mind numbing

      there's no spot in the online application for a recommendation, but since it's such a specific niche with lots of technical requirements, you shouldn't have tons of competition.

      Yes Optum has a ton of DS positions opening up. It’s good to get involved in the local meetup scene where you can meet others who already work there. I️ also saw that Capital One in NY has close to 40 positions open (all with varying levels of seniority).
