About the team

The post-training team is responsible for aligning the pre-trained models and deploying them into ChatGPT, the API and for other research teams to use. Some examples of what our team works on is giving the models the ability to use tools (e.g. browsing and code interpreter), improving the model’s factuality and instruction following abilities, and improving the multimodal capabilities of the model.

About the Role

This role is for a research/engineering manager on post-training to lead a team focusing on product deployment for both ChatGPT and the API. The team will be responsible for a significant portion of the product improvements within the post-training team, with a focus on short-term, high-impact projects. The team will also own the research for some core product components end-to-end.

Responsibilities 

  • Managing, creating, and running RLHF data campaigns.
  • Building robust evaluations for tracking improvements.
  • Using existing research techniques to enhance the team's iteration speed.
  • Building tools for successful processes like prompt distillation.
  • Ensuring product improvements are reflected in the deployed model and addressing any interactions with other parts of the model.
  • Collaborating closely with product, design, and UX teams to identify product issues and develop and deploy solutions.

Qualifications

  • Experience in leading an applied machine learning team closely tied to a product.
  • Machine learning expertise, ideally with large language models.
  • Experience managing a team of more than 6 people.
  • Strong software engineering background and organizational skills.

Example Responsibilities 

  • ChatGPT Product Improvements: fixing model behavior issues such as laziness, prompt distillation and making the model proficient at following user negative instructions.
  • API Product Improvements: Enhancing function calling, multi-tool function calling, constrained sampling, and fixing model identity and self-knowledge.
  • Building and improving evaluations to track product improvements and regressions.

This role is exclusively based in our San Francisco HQ. We offer relocation assistance to new employees.
