Do you want to lead an ML team with access to 16M wines, 62M users, and 2.3B label scans? How do 256K ratings, 250K wineries, and more than 10K winemakers sound to you? Or what about diving into the data behind 4K wine regions, more than 1.500 different grapes, and 300 styles of wine?
Imagine being a part of an engineering leadership team leading a team working on all that data for developing and running ML Solutions including MLOps along with driving the engineering culture.
Do all these things resonate with your expectations for a great job? Then the position as Lead ML might just be the right thing for you.
Vivino, the world's largest wine community, is seeking an experienced and highly skilled engineer to lead, manage and contribute to the growth of our ML team.
As the Lead of ML, based in Copenhagen you’ll report to our Director of Engineering and work closely with Engineering leadership, the Product Managers, wine domain experts, and other stakeholders to understand their goals and requirements and align the development of machine learning models with the overall product roadmap.
The team is responsible for developing and running our ML solutions in Vivino, including MLOps; streamlining the process of taking machine learning models to production and maintaining them, with a special focus on writing clean code, containerisation, pipelining, testing, linting, deployment, automated retraining, experimentation, and writing microservices.
As a member of the Enablement Group, the ML Team supports cross-functional teams in achieving their goals. Your role will involve working closely with the DevOps team to ensure that the machine learning models are deployed and maintained in a robust, scalable, easy-to-update, and managed way.
Your key responsibilities across these areas of focus will include the following:

With your strategic mindset, you work in an organised manner and help prioritise what the team should work on to have the most impact on Vivino and drive the creation of a tech strategy for the ML area that ties in with our overall strategy.
Just as importantly, you are solution-oriented and therefore, perceive problem solving as one of your key strengths. With your evaluative work approach and analytical thinking, you are quick at getting to the core of a problem by examining information, documenting facts, and interpreting data accordingly.
You are a committed and team-oriented manager as you attach great importance to understanding people and value individuals. In addition, you value being able to motivate others and consider yourself adept at finding ways to be inspiring and encouraging. Your strong leadership abilities also allow you to be comfortable in making quick decisions and taking control of things.
If this characterisation and below experience levels resonates with you, we look forward to hearing from you!
