At Turnitin, our mission is to ensure academic integrity, help students get informative feedback, and surface insights about teaching and learning. Our products are used at over 15,000 schools in over 150 countries, covering over 30M students. The company was founded almost 20 years ago, and was recently acquired by Advance (owner of Conde Nast and Discovery Network). Turnitin is headquartered in Oakland, with offices in Pittsburgh, Newcastle (UK), Utrecht (Netherlands), Seoul (South Korea) and Melbourne (Australia).
Machine Learning is integral to the continued success of our company. Our product roadmap is exciting and ambitious. You will join a team of curious, helpful, and independent scientists and engineers, united by a commitment to deliver cutting-edge, well-engineered ML systems.
We are in a unique position to deliver Machine Learning useful to hundreds of thousands of instructors teaching millions of students around the world. Over 1B papers have been submitted to the Turnitin platform, and over 100M answers have been graded on Gradescope by Turnitin. Machine Learning powers automated feedback on student writing, investigates authorship of student writing, groups handwritten student answers by content, and plays a crucial role in many back-end processes.
We expect Machine Learning Engineers to be strong software engineers with a passion for machine learning methods and applications. You will focus on ensuring turn-key model training and bringing trained models to production at scale, with significant capacity for dataset construction, and building web interfaces for data exploration and system monitoring.
