Description

  • Our formula for success is to hire exceptional people, encourage their ideas and reward their results.
  • We are seeking a motivated Machine Learning Engineer (MLE) Intern to join our team and play a crucial role in developing cutting-edge NLP solutions for finance and trading applications. This internship provides an exceptional opportunity to gain hands-on experience with large language models (LLMs), machine learning model development, and the fundamentals of machine learning operations (MLOps) while actively contributing to the growth of our software engineering environment.

Requirements

  • A degree in Computer Science, Data Science, Engineering, or a related field graduating between December 2024 and June 2025 (Bachelor’s, Master’s)
  • Strong foundation in machine learning concepts (supervised/unsupervised learning, classification, regression).
  • Solid understanding of NLP fundamentals and experience with LLMs a plus.
  • Proficiency in Python programming and familiarity with libraries like NumPy, Pandas, and Scikit-learn.
  • Excellent analytical, problem-solving, and communication skills.
  • Passion for developing innovative AI solutions within the financial domain.
  • Preferred Skills:
  • Experience with NLP tasks (text classification, summarization, question-answering).
  • Knowledge of TensorFlow or PyTorch.
  • Basic understanding of MLOps principles (monitoring, versioning, model serving).
  • Learning Opportunities:
  • Gain in-depth experience with cutting-edge NLP techniques, effective LLM utilization, and model deployment in a real-world setting.
  • Develop robust MLE skills, from data engineering to model evaluation, while directly influencing the growth of the SWE environment.
  • Contribute to projects with direct impact on financial decision-making.
  • Be a part of building a strong software engineering culture, driving improvements in code quality, collaboration, and efficiency.
