Post #: 18
Ok, I'm not used to job-marketing speech, so bear with me:

Orbitz is looking for a Sr. Engineer for its Machine Learning team. Orbitz' platform is primarily Java, so strong experience there is desired. Experience with Hadoop (including M/R, Hive, HBase, etc.) is also desired. Strong analytical skills are a must w/ particular focus on machine learning skills. The ideal candidate will be able to mentor junior team members in both ML techniques as well as engineering practices. Experience with production systems and experimental practices is also desired.

Send me an email w/ your resume if you're intrested.
