Job Description

About Intel Saffron

Inspired by the remarkable way our brain stores and reasons from information, Intel® Saffron™ leverages an associative memory approach to find hidden patterns in data and enable smarter decisions.  Saffron is used with complex data sets where the data is highly varied and often sparse - providing a complementary alternative to model-driven machine learning.  The core technology has been developed and used for almost two decades, and is now part of an exciting portfolio of AI offerings within Intel. 

As the Field Engineering Manager, you will manage and develop a team of field engineers (solution architects, data engineers, data scientists, software engineers, etc.). As part of the client solutions & services team, you will build a team laser focused on the high quality technical implementation of Saffron’s offerings.  Responsibilities include:

  • Defining use-case specific techniques, design patterns, and methods used across the lifecycle of a Saffron implementation.  The lifecycle includes:

Data analysis. Data engineering & feature extraction. Resource design & knowledge ingest. Query design & implementation. UI development & integration. 

  • Recruiting, hiring, developing, and retaining top technical talent.
  • Managing and accounting for the intelligent utilization of resources. This involves assigning engineers to well-defined activities, including:

Billable customer implementations. Internal improvement and infrastructure projects. Training and development.

  • Collaborate appropriately with adjacent teams.
    • Work with the Enablement Team to ensure that techniques, methods, design patterns, and the like are properly represented in the training curriculum.
    • Establish appropriate representation across product engineering scrum teams. 
    • Serve as alpha testers, providing measured feedback, for products prior to their public release.  


  • Bachelor’s degree; Master’s preferred – ideally in computer science or engineering. 
  • Track record of successful machine learning or data science implementations.
  • Strong management experience in a professional services role for a software business.
  • Fluency in relevant technologies.
  • Great communicator and relationship builder.

Additional Desired Traits/Skills

  • You have the confidence to express your opinions and advocate for ideas that are unconventional or even unpopular, but possess the maturity and professionalism to value relationships more than you value “being right”. 
  • You’re proactive, creative, and collaborative - finding ways to add value and thrive in a rapidly developing business environment. 
  • You’re a competitor… and you set standards that allow us to effectively compete in the marketplace.

Travel Requirements
Must be able and willing to manage up to 25% domestic travel.
