Avatar platform for AI Companions & VTubers
Hyper is seeking an Applied Machine Learning Engineer with a focus on Large Language Models (LLMs) to enhance our AI avatar storytelling and behavior. This role is perfect for someone with a talent for rapid prototyping, passion for the latest ML models, and experience in managing and improving large datasets.
💻 Take charge of tuning, deploying, and improving existing Large Language Models (LLMs) for character storytelling and embodied avatar behaviors.
🔬 Engage in rapid prototyping and hacking with cutting-edge ML models, constantly exploring new technologies and methodologies.
📊 Manage and enhance large datasets to improve the performance and efficiency of our machine learning applications.
📙 A portfolio of personal or professional projects related to machine learning and LLM tuning.
✉️ Experience deploying, tuning, iterating, and evaluating models.
🔧 Proficiency in programming languages commonly used in ML, such as Python, R, or Java, and familiarity with ML frameworks like TensorFlow, PyTorch, or Keras.
📈 Experience with handling and improving large datasets, with a strong understanding of data manipulation and data cleaning techniques.
🧠 A deep understanding of machine learning algorithms, principles, and their application to real-world problems.
📝 Excellent written communication skills, essential for our remote working environment.
Hyper's goal is to build the world's best avatar tools. We're starting with VTubing as our first use-case: avatars that people use to live-stream and make content online. Avatar content (also known as VTubing) has broken into the multi-billion-view-per-month category on places like Twitch and YouTube. This has given a new group of people the power to tell stories and present themselves on their own terms online while also protecting their IRL identities. We're now the #1 US VTubing app on iOS, and have recently released an AI platform to create avatar powered companions.
We're backed by great investors over at Amazon, MakersFund, YCombinator, and more.
