Life at Sift
What's the biggest problem your team is solving?
Here, we’re applying machine learning and analyzing data that is far outside the realm of academic algorithms. I think many engineers dream about seeing their work make an impact; at Sift, the opportunity to solve ML problems with data and explore deep learning applications brings that dream within reach.
