The Infinia ML Interview Preparation Guide

Three people talking a whiteboard.

If you’re preparing to interview for a technical position at Infinia ML, here’s a heads up on what to expect.

We’re a machine learning company that values learning. In fact, our interview candidates sometimes say things like this:

“. . . I actually learned a lot by thinking through the problems . . .”

“This was a better process than my dissertation defense.”

 “I learned more about machine learning during this interview than I have in the last several years.”

Presentation

As part of the interview, you’ll give a 30-minute presentation to our team. The first five minutes should give an overview of your background. You’ll then have up to 25 minutes to cover a topic of your choosing, like a project you’ve worked on or your academic research.  In addition to technical depth, we want to understand how you think through a problem. 

You can assume a technical audience, and supporting slides will be helpful. Feel free to bring a computer or email slides in advance to your hiring manager. 

Discussion Sessions

Beyond the presentation, we’ll have several small-group discussions to help us assess your:

  • Theoretical/conceptual understanding of machine learning
  • Ability to map theory to real-world challenges
  • Data/coding abilities
  • Cultural fit with our team

Come prepared to be challenged, but know that our team is very friendly and wants you to succeed.

Logistics

Our office is located in Research Triangle Park. The address is 1009 Slater Road, Durham, NC 27703. You can find a map on our contact page.

Please ring the bell and we’ll let you in.

We look forward to meeting you soon!
