The Role:

Fetch’s Data Science team has built a world-class machine learning system that scans our users’ receipts and rewards them by matching items to our one-of-a-kind product catalog. We are very proud of the work we’ve accomplished in a short period of time, but we also recognize that we still have a long ways to go to meet our receipt understanding goals.

Receipts are a language all their own, and we need talented DS/ML practictioners to help us continue to improve our capabilities. We aspire for nothing less than a lightning-fast user experience and a perfect match rate.

As a Data Scientist at Fetch, you will apply your skills and your knack for applied research to make a direct impact on improving our product matching intelligence, receipt understanding, in-app search functionality, and more.

  • You’ve seen an NLP project through to completion (from proof-of-concept to production software)
  • You’ve developed Transformers-based NLP models using ML frameworks like Huggingface and PyTorch
  • You’re comfortable with ML development tools like Comet, Streamlit, and Sagemaker, and you know how to incorporate them into the ML experimentation workflow
  • You have a PhD or Master’s with equivalent experience in Statistics, Mathematics, Computer Science or any other Quantitative field. Publication record is a plus.
  • You enjoy collaborating with folks with different experience and skillsets in order to solve the problem at hand
