Quora’s mission is to share and grow the world’s knowledge. We are an internet-scale Library of Alexandria, a place where people go to learn about anything and share everything they know. At Quora, we use Machine Learning in almost every part of the product - feed ranking, answer ranking, search, topic and user recommendations, spam detection etc. Within the past few months we released a large duplicate question dataset , built out Quora on Alexa and Google Home  and linked Quora Topics to Wikidata . As a Machine Learning expert, you will have a unique opportunity to have high impact by advancing these systems, as well as uncovering new opportunities to apply Machine Learning to the Quora product. As a ML Infrastructure Expert, you will play a key role in developing tools and abstractions that our other developers would build on top of.

The point: We are making the threat intelligence process run more smoothly and helping organizations share threat data better. Our solution pulls threat information (both our own and via external APIs) into a graph and enables real-time collaboration and sharing of the information on the graph.
What we're looking for: We're looking for a mid/advanced front-end developer to take over development of our sites UI (we're in-housing development of the site after contracting it out for about a year). The front-end is built with React/Microcosm/Material/Vis.js, and it talks to our backend using a mix of REST and WebSockets. Ideally, the person we're looking for would be comfortable doing both the React programming side of things as well as the HTML/CSS/layout work. There would also be some design work as we roll out new features to the site.
Perks of the job: early round shares, competitive salary, 401k, & healthcare benefits. Also, we work from home a lot and our focus is on getting the work done, not on attendance or face time.
A bit about us: We are a pre-A-round startup. We have a working product and paying customers, so we're in a good spot financially. We are based in Alexandria, VA but do a lot of working from home, and tend to meet up in Alexandria once a week or so. Also, since we have an existing contracting relationship for our UI development, we're very flexible about start dates for this position.
