Open position at GLAMI

Cloud DevOps (MLOps) Engineer

Work schedule
Křižíkova 148/34, Karlín, 186 00 Praha-Praha 8, Česko

GLAMI is rapidly expanding its use of Machine Learning (ML), and we are looking for a skilled DevOps or MLOps engineer to design, build, and develop further the right Kubernetes/ML solution. Our infrastructure relies heavily on AWS and orchestrating the various Kubernetes clusters and services. MLOps is a new area in the operations field and we are looking to have an impact on its direction. More than the knowledge of Machine Learning, which we can provide, we are looking for AWS/Kubernetes expertise.

Our AI team is responsible for the ML projects from their inception and experiments all the way through software engineering to the deployment and maintenance. We have both projects that have been running for a couple of years that continually bring us great value and also brand new projects that need development and testing. We are responsible for both real time APIs as well as batch APIs, we run both on CPUs and GPUs and most of our work is done in Python.

Gradually we would show you the basic structure of the relevant projects so that you would get to know the most important parts of our codebase. We would show you how we automatically deploy our models and what services we rely on. We have seen our demand for MLOps grow and therefore we want the team to grow as well.

Right now the work varies week to week, because AWS is not stationary in time and so if it has issues, we need to address them and when everything is stable, we can work on improvements

to stability, performance or costs. Due to the nature of the position we are ready to cooperate remotely if that is your preference, otherwise our Prague offices are ready for you in Karlín, Prague. We are open to part-time contract and if you prefer to work as an external consultant, we have several projects that fit that description as well.

What will you do:

  • Depending on the specific offer we would agree on goals for the first three months of the cooperation, these would like be: gradually get to know the codebase and apply the knowledge to one of the current projects (deploy/upgrade/…).

  • Suggest changes to/update/redesign our automated deployment system to Kubernetes clusters.

  • Optionally participate in the development of the various ML Projects, these vary from recommender systems, and neural networks for categorization to product similarity and several others.
  • Suggest alternatives - cheaper, more stable, better - to the services we use.
  • Optimization of how we use AWS, for each problem there is a plethora of solutions, help us pick the best one.
  • In case of trouble with AWS take a look at lower levels of our application in Kubernetes, and Docker.
  • Respond to emergencies in case of outages.
  • Cooperate with our infrastructure team which is responsible for our bare-metal web servers.
