We are the computational advertising team in the AI & Research organization at Microsoft. We are looking for candidates with research and applied experience in machine learning related areas.
Search advertising is a $100 billion market worldwide. Microsoft's Bing search engine supports over 30% of desktop search in the US, with similarly significant presence in many other countries.
We are a team of applied scientists working on machine learning components in the whole sponsored search stack.
Our work covers ad selection (IR, NLP, deep learning), relevance & click prediction (large scale regression, ranking, discriminative models, recommender systems, ensembles), auction mechanism design, marketplace optimization (large-scale multi-objective optimization), ad quality and policy enforcement (ML in adversarial settings), and a number of other ML-driven solutions.
You will design, implement, analyze and optimize ML pipelines and the supporting infrastructure for operating on large datasets.
You will create publishing, fault detection and debugging infrastructure which can take intersection of multitude of such pipelines and provide rapid root cause analysis
