Siri is the voice of Apple products and its launch was a defining moment in the history of Artificial Intelligence. Hundreds of millions of people now use Siri to send a message, play their favorite song, or even take a selfie. They’re looking for a passionate individual able to work on the processing, analysis, and preparation of data sets used to train Siri’s machine-learned models. You will love big data technologies, including data exploration, visualization, distributed processing, and applications at scale.

Key Qualifications

Proficiency in software development using Python

Experience of software development with Scala or willingness to learn it

Commitment to high quality, well-tested code

Preferable: you have experience with machine learning systems and producing data sets for training and evaluation

You are curious and enjoy learning new technologies, rapidly synthesizing new information, and understanding “the why” before “the what.”

You are humble, continually growing in self-awareness, and possessing a growth mindset


Siri processes more than a billion requests every week and good data is at the heart of this engine. Their work powers state-of-the-art machine learning models and each commit you make has the potential to impact Siri users worldwide. You will work closely with ML feature teams and other data engineering teams to:

– Design, create and maintain efficient and large-scale data pipelines

– Curate and support data for machine learning models

– Explore data to resolve issues with model accuracy, find actionable insights, and support data-driven decision making

Based in Cambridge, they are a key AI/ML hub, working closely with teams across Apple worldwide. This means occasional evening meetings with teams outside the UK, and limited international travel may be required.
