I'm interested to learn of companies in the NC Triangle area (Chapel Hill, Durham, Raleigh) that have teams working with Machine Learning and Big Data. I know some in IBM, Cisco and LexisNexis - what are others?

    Yea basically everyone in the Triangle is hiring machine learning engineers and data scientists but it means very different things at different places. Some skew towards R/Python, a lot are using Java/Scala and a few are big on C/++ (If memory serves me well I believe Align Technologies is one of the more C++ focused groups).

    A few other companies: SAS, Distil, Maxpoint, Pendo, Metlife, Citadel, Globant, Automated Insights, Fidelity, Cinga, Credit Suisse, Intel, Quintiles, RTI, Epic Games

    At LexisNexis, we are experimenting and exploring a whole slew of machine learning techniques.

    I'm more interested in the Scala/Spark route than python / R or C

      MaxPoint is hiring Scala/Spark. There's plenty of pyspark too - most just use what works best for them. We have a senior data science in machine learning role posted.

      Considering that the ML I know is what I'll be teaching myself over the next 6 months, I'm sure the positions I can transfer into will be more limited, despite my other skills and achievements in software engineering. I also lack a masters in data science, which I'm sure is a popular requirement for ML devs right?

      Pretty much a req. Plenty of PhDs here too. We do have Scala/Spark engineering, though. My engineering team is 70% Scala/Spark, 20% Java and 10% pySpark and pandas.

      That would still be a good next step towards my long term career goal of machine learning / big data.

    You could go to "The Frontier" and chat with lots of local workers. It's a cool innovation center where people can work on their individual projects or collaborate.
