It's been a busy few months here at Triplebyte! Today we’re thrilled to announce the launch of our Machine Learning Beta Program - enabling you to source and hire machine learning engineers through the Triplebyte platform for the first time!
Early in 2019 we made the decision to expand the Triplebyte marketplace to include machine learning (ML) engineers. Why? Well we know that ML roles are increasingly important to companies - in fact ML job openings have grown 344% between 2015 and 2018. This is something we’ve seen reflected in the requests we’ve had directly from our customer base. Add onto this that we’ve seen a 34% increase in the number of Triplebyte candidates looking for machine learning jobs since April this year alone and it’s clear - the market for machine learning talent is hot!
We’ve deliberately taken our time in launching machine learning within Triplebyte to make sure that we get this right. We’ve spent the past few months carefully developing our machine learning assessment process to ensure that we continue to deliver the quality of candidates that our customers have come to know and love from Triplebyte. To make sure that the new assessment hits the mark we’ve worked with our partner companies to get input on what they are looking for, as well as drawing on internal learnings from hiring machine learning candidates for our very own team at Triplebyte. And of course this is something that we’ve carefully tested with machine learning engineers from varying backgrounds.
In addition to evaluating all of the skills needed for machine learning specifically, the new assessment looks at level of understanding of the fundamental topics necessary for machine learning (math, probability, etc), experience with various ML tools and techniques, and best practices around applying machine learning to real-world problems.
So how can you get started with ML candidates with Triplebyte?
It’s simple. Just log into your active Triplebyte account (if you don’t have one you can create a free Triplebyte account here) and you will be able to add a machine learning role. Just be sure to select “Machine Learning Engineer” from the list of archetypes, and then select the type of machine learning engineer you’re looking for.
