Why would you love this job?

We are looking for an experienced and high-impact Applied AI Engineer to join our Emerging Markets & Business team to define, develop, and execute the technical approach for Redis-powered solutions for artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML).  In this role you will work with cross-functional teams in incubating this new business for Redis by jointly collaborating with product and partner facing teams, and working closely with early adopter customers.     


As an Applied AI Engineer, you will be the Subject Matter Expert (SME) for helping customers (Enterprises, Digital Native Businesses, ISVs) design solutions that leverage Redis for AI and ML use cases. Within Redis, we’re focused on bringing knowledge and capability to customers through two very focused efforts – data infrastructure modernization where Redis is an online feature store, and accelerating AI-powered applications via a new category of vector databases and similarity searches.  You will work closely with the product team to enable early adopter customers to use Redis for AI/ML use cases, and establish strategic integration and partnerships with ML ecosystem providers.  This will involve building POCs, pilots, challenges, and evaluations by working hands-on with customers and partners, and integrating Redis across their AI/ML tool chains and frameworks.

Familiarity and experience with mathematics and statistics background is preferred in addition to experience with building and deploying ML models. The ideal candidate should be familiar with the ecosystem of software vendors in the AI/ML space, and will leverage this knowledge to help Redis develop integrations with the appropriate ML ecosystem providers.

  • Work closely with Product Management, Marketing, Sales, and Developer Advocacy teams including collaboration on blogs, white papers, demonstration assets, workshops, webinars, and more
