Solutions Engineer (Professional Services Engineer)

Figure Eight Federal

This is a Full-time position in Arlington, VA posted November 21, 2021.

Artificial Intelligence (AI)is transforming government.

Across Defense, Health and Human Services, Homeland Security and Emergency Management, Sciences, Natural Resources and Regulatory functions
– all are recognizing the power of human-machine teaming.

Nothing moves in AI and machine learning (ML) without training data, and only high-quality training data can produce accurate and robust AI/ML powered solutions.

Creating high quality training data at the scale necessary to meet the demands of our government mission partners is incredibly challenging.

Few companies can do it.

Even fewer can do it well.

Since 2017, Figure Eight Federal has proven it can do both.

In March 2019, Figure Eight was acquired by Appen.

Headquartered in the National Capital Region, Figure Eight Federal was created to specifically serve the needs of our government customers.

Together, Appen and Figure Eight Federal, combine the best of human and machine intelligence to provide high-quality annotated training data that powers the world’s most innovative machine learning (ML) mission solutions.

The Figure Eight platform enables ML and data-driven business solutions to scale across a diverse set of industries including retail, automotive, finance, manufacturing, agriculture, life sciences, robotics, and more.

The Figure Eight platform transforms audio, video, text, and images into high-quality annotated data to support a variety of use cases ranging from computer vision and search relevance to data categorization and natural language processing (NLP).
