About the Role

The Member Experience mission at WeWork delivers experiences that create intelligent spaces and connected, consciously-engineered communities to make people happier and more productive at work.

As a Machine Learning Engineer in the Member Experience mission, you will help build intelligent systems that provide personalized, location and context-aware recommendations to foster a sense of community in our digital and physical spaces, enable increased productivity for our members and evolve the ways in which members connect within the community. A recent TechCrunch article highlights some of the team’s work -

Having a strong software engineering skill set is critical to this role. You will build scalable infrastructure, develop advanced algorithms, and deploy solutions in a production environment. Your final output will be working software components and your “audience” for this output will often consist of other software components that run autonomously with minimal human supervision.


  • Partner with Product, Design and Data teams to drive feature development end-to-end.
  • Design, develop and deploy components of our ML products and platforms for feature engineering in production environments.
  • Develop platforms and microservices for machine learning, optimization and experimentation.
  • Actively contribute to sprint planning and product roadmaps.


  • 4+ years of software engineering experience.
  • Experience in at least one of the following areas: recommendation systems, machine learning, pattern recognition, experimentation, optimization, NLP, computer vision, network analysis.
  • Experience applying standard implementations of machine learning algorithms and effectively choosing suitable models, e.g. regression, nearest neighbors, neural networks, ensemble models.
  • Fluency in one or more backend languages, with experience in Python or Scala a plus.
  • Ability to work in a fast paced, evolving, growing and dynamic environment.
  • Demonstrated personal initiative and strong ownership of deliverables.
  • Ability to explore new ideas and have a passion to make them happen.

Nice To Have

  • Experience with distributed systems.
  • Fluency with Spark or some flavor of SQL.
  • Experience working with the AWS stack.
  • Experience with dockers/containers/Kubernetes.
  • Advanced degree (Ph.D. or M.S.) in computer science, mathematics, statistics, operations research or other quantitative disciplines.
