About This Job

Description

The Opportunity

At Hyatt, we’re working to Advance Care through data-driven decisions and automation.  This mission serves as the foundation for every decision as we create the future of travel. We can’t do that without the best talent – talent that is innovative, curious, and driven to create exceptional experiences for our guests, customers, owners, and colleagues. Hyatt seeks an extraordinary Machine Learning Engineer to help build the algorithmic assets and features that Hyatt guests, members, customers, and internal users leverage to transform the guest experience and drive efficiencies across the operations of our business.

In this role you will design and implement algorithmic product architectures to bring our machine learning models to life across the full lifecycle of the product including data ingestion, ML processing, and results delivery/activation. This role will work cross-functionally with various data science teams, data engineering teams, and data architecture teams. The ideal candidate can serve as both solutions architect as well as hands-on implementation engineer and guide the team towards best-in-class algorithmic product implementations. You will be a part of a ground-floor, hands-on, highly visible team which is positioned for growth and is highly collaborative and passionate about data science.

Applying the latest techniques and approaches across the domains of data science, machine learning, and AI isn’t just a nice to have, it’s a must.

Who We Are

Hyatt is proud to have a culture where coworkers become friends and family.  Since 1957, our focus on care for our employees and our guests has served as the heart of our business and made Hyatt one of the best hospitality brands in the world, with more than 950 hotel, all-inclusive, and wellness resort properties in 67 countries across six continents.

As we continue to grow – even during the most challenging and uncertain times – we never lose sight of what’s most important: People.

Why now?

We are in a time of extraordinary transformation. Passion for personal travel combined with the explosive growth of global business underpinned our growth for years. With Covid-19, much travel has ceased - but the passion for travel remains. Now that vaccines have been introduced, one of the things people look forward to most is traveling. Hyatt is at the epicenter of the return to travel - and we are looking for passionate changemakers to be a part of our journey. When you join Hyatt, you will join a world of possibility.

How We Care for Our People

Wellbeing is the ultimate realization of our purpose — we care for people so they can be their best. We believe this focus on employees is the key to our success and we’ve earned a place on Fortune’s prestigious “100 Best Companies to Work For®” for the last seven years, ranking No. 28 in 2020.

We’re proud to offer exceptional benefits which may include:

• Complimentary and discounted stays at Hyatt hotels around the world

• A global family assistance policy with paid time off following the birth or adoption of a child as well as financial assistance for adoption

• Work-life benefits including wellbeing initiatives such as a complimentary Headspace subscription, on-site rest and relaxation, meditation lounges and flexible schedules

Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Hyatt has made significant strides toward building a diverse, equitable and inclusive culture. With more than 127,000 colleagues across 67 countries, we embrace all cultures, races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, ages, abilities, perspectives, and ways of thinking.

This commitment to genuine service and care is what differentiates us and drives guest preference.
