Engineering Manager, Review and Training Platform (London)

London, UK — Platform

About the Team

OpenAI's Review and Training Platform is one of three major pillars in building our AI models that align with our mission, namely developing safe and universally beneficial AGI. The team provides RLHF and evals across the OpenAI organization. Projects like ChatGPT, DAll-E, plugins, browsing, code interpreter, GPT-V and others are aligned with human intent gathered by data, both human and synthetic. With the help of comprehensive human insights represented as labels, we develop AI systems that are aligned with human interests.

Our team designs, deploys and maintains the infrastructure necessary to generate data at scale from a variety of sources and is responsible for the ML operations, data management tooling, quality and eval systems, model experimentation and insights tools that are leveraged to improve overall AI models. We use data from AI trainers to power alignment with the instruction following models and to train AI to leverage web browsing when answering questions. We harness high quality data from synthetic and human experts across a variety of domains and leverage OpenAI ML models to supercharge the data collection and quality process.
