Opinion on ML at these startups

Jan 10, 2019 7 Comments

Was reached out by the following startups for positions of lead ml engineer/ chief data scientist. Just wanted opinions on how they are doing, whether it's a good career move.

Course hero
Didi labs

I've eliminated those I wouldn't want to consider. Current TC is approx 230k in cash, 320k total. LMTS at Salesforce/ ML.

Personally I'd like to join open AI, even with lesser TC, but I don't want to interview there first. But open AI is probably the only place I'd go for lesser TC.

    Course Hero is amazing. Probably a unicorn already, growing at a big clip. The AI there is great. They have tens of millions of documents with unstructured days. Great place to develop AI and analytics.

    Join Nextdoor instead. Data is far more interesting than those options and we are hiring high level ML positions.
