There has never been a better time to become proficient in Machine Learning, a field that is rapidly transforming the world as we speak. While there are hundreds of tutorials and courses available online, nothing compares to learning directly from the team that pioneered Machine Learning as a Service (MLaaS) in 2011 and continues to implement real-world Machine Learning solutions every day.
How can you get this hands-on experience, you may ask? One of the best ways is becoming a BigML Intern to get a headstart! We are excited to launch our Internship Program, which welcomes advanced students and young professionals to join the BigML Team. BigML is seeking interns during the summer of 2018 and throughout the whole year for the following roles:
- Product Development
- Software Engineering
- Business Development
To give a taste of BigML Internship projects, here are two examples from past interns:
- Machine Learning Throwdown: a series of 6 blog posts comparing BigML to other platforms
- How-To Create a WhizzML Script: a series of 4 blog posts on writing WhizzML scripts
Every company, big and small, has data and the need to analyze it to transform it into actionable insights. For this reason, Machine Learning is becoming a common and expected tool in business settings. Regardless of your academic background and career aspirations, having a grasp of applied Machine Learning will serve you well in the future. Machine Learning skills are replacing the “proficient in Excel” requirement on resumes, and this progression will only continue in 2018. In fact, we are already seeing job applications that list BigML as a required skill (see minute 1:45).
The BigML platform continues to expand and improve, thanks to our top-notch team that has been international since day one. Our summer 2017 interns were no exception, representing a variety of backgrounds and coming from 4 different countries of origin (China, India, Spain, and the USA). The BigML Team today consists of 35 members from 6 countries, representing 14 different cities. During 2018, BigML looks forward to bringing several interns on board who are eager to learn and put Machine Learning to good use.
If you are nodding your head at this point and thinking, “sign me up!” please see the dedicated Internships page for more details about the program and how to apply. Feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. Don’t hesitate and start your application today!
