MTS- Machine Learning (Xi IoT)

With the proliferation of billions of IoT devices at the Edge, generating vast amounts of useful data, we need a decentralized computing platform that caters to a variety of data processing applications ranging from real time processing, machine learning and inferencing, to long term archival and retrieval of data. We’re building a platform that enables customers to deploy data processing applications where the data is, instead of moving data to the applications.

Nutanix Xi IoT Team

Xi IoT Platform team operates cloud services to manage planet scale infrastructure to make it extremely easy to build and run AI Powered Applications at the Edge, Data Center or Public Cloud. Our high level goal is to craft an IoT "OS" that makes the Edge and Cloud into one seamless entity for IoT developers. This is also an opportunity to work within a team of diverse skillsets. You will get a chance to apply and broaden your expertise of driving projects in machine learning, data science, security, distributed systems, cloud services, server-less architecture, and large scale sensor/device management.
