Task Force Talent is seeking senior machine learning engineers (possibly multiple openings for strong candidates) for a very well-funded Series B company working on insider threat and supply chain security problems. We have an extremely good relationship with this client and work directly with the CTO, who has started several companies and had multiple successful exits, including an IPO. We have placed quite a few engineers at this firm over the last year, and everyone we have placed is extremely happy. (Even those who did not get an offer were left with very positive impressions.) Target salary range is 120k to 200k+ + equity, depending on experience level and location. (Note: At $170k base salary or above, generally candidates need 5+ years of experience and a very strong interview.)

The company is profitable and growing fast with approximately 100+ employees. Positions are available in Tysons Corner, VA, and Salt Lake City, UT. The work environment is hybrid, typically 3 days/week in the office so people know each other, but those hours are flexible to accommodate family/childcare and traffic.

The benefits are great and include:

  • Company Equity Options and 401(k) Plan
  • Unlimited PTO and Wellness Reimbursement
  • U.S. Holidays
  • Paid Parental Leave
  • Comprehensive Insurance (Medical, Dental, and Vision)

This company is completely private sector, no security clearance required. However, employment is open to U.S. citizens only at this time.

If you apply but this company is not a fit, we will consider you for other available positions as well.
