We are a small team that partners with the machine learning community to organize and plan academic conferences. We host about 40,000 people annually on our Django platform. You will join a distributed team that contributes to both developing the platform and running the conferences.

Traditionally, physical conferences have been held around the world in places like Vancouver, New Orleans, Montreal, Sydney, and Vienna. During the pandemic, the conferences have become virtual, but will eventually become hybrid using both physical and virtual sites. You should be able to travel a few times a year for the week-long conferences.
