Clever machine learning without robust scalable engineering is a like a nice brunch without coffee: delicious but not sustaining. In this talk we will share with you both the machine learning effort and the engineering smarts behind SEEK's new Top Applicant Badge. We'll outline the ensemble of algorithms we built, the joys(!) of making LightGBM and Tensorflow play nice at scale and the lessons we’ve learned in how to version a complex pipeline, split the computational effort for maximum speed at inference, backfill and hot switch a new model.

With a firm conviction not to die wondering ‘what if?’, I’ve worn a number hats in my career to date and plan to wear quite a few more. My greatest satisfaction comes from working with smart people to solve difficult problems. The common thread of my professional journey is a never ending fascination with solving problems and building things - be those things laser systems, quantum computers, data assets, software applications, deep learning algorithms or enthusiastic high-performing teams, . I have worked in insurance, banking, telecommunications, government, gaming, the airline industry, the job board, market and both fundamental and applied research, . I’m currently focussed on building, training and leading cross-functional teams working on the boundary between, software engineering and machine learning.
