Hiring Python ML Development Team for Automotive Project

Hiring Python ML Development Team for Automotive Project

Client’s Request for Machine Learning Team And Goals

Google, Facebook, Uber, Amazon, Spotify… What do these companies have in common? The first and foremost, all of them invest in artificial intelligence. The world’s most expensive startup, SenseTime deals with AI. AI has already got into every sphere of our life, starting from routine housework and up to medicine and entertainment. It can generate photorealistic images

of never existing humans, get a victory from experts Texas Hold’Em poker game or even recreate itself like AlphaGo did when playing against itself. AI will be the technology of the future.

Our recruiters also got hooked into this kind of technological advancement. No, we don’t make them study programming (however, they can if they want 😉 ). It was their task to set up a team of Python developers with machine learning experience.

Business Challenge

Qubit Labs received a request for setting up an offshore team. It was a startup from the USA who wanted to create an AI-based traffic solution, road marking and sign detection algorithms. According to their estimations, they needed about 10 developers with Python and C++ expertise. In addition, these programmers should know TensorFlow, Computer Vision, convolutional and recursive neural networks.

To hire machine learning developers is not a small task! Especially if a client demands experience in the autonomous car industry.

Our Solution

We told our client that the search might last up to two months. At first, they were surprised by the time frames because they expected to hire machine learning developers in Ukraine faster. But after our recruiters explained the peculiarities of ML specialists search, the clients agreed that it’s a fair time for setting up experienced team.

We signed NDA and agreement with the general provisions, and the hiring process started. During the first two weeks, Qubit Labs contacted 74 machine learning developers to check their skills and ask if they are interested in applying for the vacancy. The recruiters rejected 60 of them, and nine programmers appeared not willing to change the job. Thus, the client got five prescreened CVs and decided to interview all of them. How is an interview conducted in such cases?
Our recruiter team lead sets up a call between client and candidate and introduces them to each other. We do not interfere with the interview itself, but our responsibility is to take care of smooth process – coordination and solving issues.

Results

The client was happy with two developers and asked about their salary expectations. Both prices meet the budget of the client, so the next step towards setting a dedicated team was making job offers to the successful candidates. When they accept the offer, we sign an attachment to our agreement with the client.

So far, the client hired two machine learning developers and the search continues. Сurrently our client has four scheduled interviews and we hope for long cooperation with him 😉
