[D] How does Facebook AML operate?
I am going to join Facebook as research scientist soon, and I’ve been told I will start with a bootcamp to match with a team.
Did anyone here go through this process? I was wondering how feasible it is to join a team within AML from there? From reading online, my understanding is that FAIR has its separate process and hiring pipeline, and it is impossible to join it after being hired in a general purpose ML role, but I haven’t read anything about the hiring process of the Applied Machine Learning department. Do they have their own hiring pipeline as well, or are they just one of the possible teams you can match with during bootcamp?
I have a PhD and some postdoc experience, not directly in machine learning but with a lot of ML applications in my research, so I think I’d be a pretty good fit for a more research oriented team, but I don’t know if that’s even an option, and how competitive it is to get into one of those teams.
