These tech companies are hiring machine learning engineers in Canada

Autodesk, Electronic Arts, and BenchSci are looking to beef up their AI teams.

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are quickly becoming table stakes in the tech world. The results of a global survey released this week found that almost half of businesses have implemented machine learning into their operations.

With an increasing number of organizations turning to AI for competitive advantage and Canada leading the world in AI talent concentration, it’s not surprising that many of those companies are looking to the north for new hires.

SaaS giant Autodesk is focusing this year on its in-production Autodesk Assistant, an AI-powered chatbot aimed to provide generative answers to a range of customers’ inquiries. Autodesk is on the lookout for an ML ops engineer to join its digital experience and customer empowerment data science team in Toronto.

The ML ops engineer will be tasked with streamlining and automating ML workflows and deployments, as well as deploying ML capabilities to address complex challenges, including model development, testing, integration, release, and infrastructure management.

Applicants are expected to have either a bachelor’s degree or master of science in computer science, statistics, engineering, economics, or a related field, though Autodesk also welcomes candidates from non-traditional ML backgrounds. The role requires between zero to three years of relevant experience in software engineering, data engineering, or ML engineering, along with proficiency in the Python machine learning stack, such as Pandas.

Autodesk is hiring several more positions, which can be found on its job board.
