# Machine Learning Engineer

#### Build and deploy machine learning models to production environments

Machine Learning Engineers use predictive modeling and artificial intelligence to build new products and services. Strong programming skills are critical, most commonly in languages such as Python, C, and Java, which is why many come from backgrounds in Computer Science and Engineering. Unlike Machine Learning Researchers, Machine Learning Engineers are expected to deploy their models to live, production environments. This requires them to work closely with Data Engineers, using distributed systems such as Spark, Hadoop, and Amazon EC2, to process massive amounts of Big Data, and reach a high volume of active users.
