Recently got an offer for ML engineering from the sensor intelligence team at Uber. Work seemed pretty interesting. Any reviews about the team? Are the learning opportunities good? Trying to decide between this and Apple Maps search and infra. TC roughly 250k for both, yoe 2.

      Sensing and perception is doing some really interesting work. Check out the blog post about using satellite signals to improve GPS accuracy. That’s just a small taste of the problems they are working on.

    Apple Maps is a horrible org. Don't go there.

      It sort of depends. In my org at least, new grads (including me) start at ict3. I guess it’s because they don’t want to pay overtime

      Ya, and someone with less than 2 YOE would most likely be L3 at google

      Ic2 is not full time?

      It is full time but it’s hourly instead of salaried. I think it might still be used in some orgs but not Eddy’s.

    OP, a side question, what's your background in ML? (2 yoe in ML or a masters/phd or what?), I am asking because I am trying to get into ML roles.
    Good luck.

    Sorry for off the topic comment... but how is the ML work at Pinterest... I was once rejected at the interview stage... would really like to work there in the future if they are doing well.
