By joining our Generative AI team, you will have the opportunity to be at the forefront of Generative AI technology and its application in the private equity industry, working closely with leaders in the field to shape the future of consulting.


The AI Engineer will be a pivotal member of the Generative AI lab, a specialized cohort of engineers devoted to innovating core AI functionalities that propel value across the consulting lifecycle for our consultants. The key focus areas encompass information extraction, synthesis, and analytical processing of both structured and unstructured data to unearth quantitative insights. The AI Engineer will be instrumental in architecting, owning, and evolving AI functionalities throughout their lifecycle, transitioning from proof of concept to a production-grade pipeline. This role involves researching novel capabilities, conducting empirical experiments to quantitatively ascertain the functionality’s performance and suitability, and developing proofs of concept. The ensuing phase involves refining the pipeline to a production-grade module, ready for integration by the product team into a user-centric experience.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Owning and steering individual pipelines for AI functionalities from conceptualization to production.
  • Investigating emerging capabilities, conducting rigorous experiments to quantitatively evaluate functionality's performance and relevance, and developing proofs of concept.
  • Transitioning pipelines to production-quality modules for seamless integration into user experiences by the product team.
  • Collaborating closely with other engineers in the Generative AI lab to drive innovative solutions and share knowledge and insights.
  • Ensuring the continual enhancement of AI functionalities by leveraging feedback and performance metrics to refine pipelines and modules.
  • Communicating effectively with stakeholders to report progress, challenges, and outcomes of AI initiatives.


  • 5+ years of professional experience in data science, specifically in crafting and deploying AI/ML applications.
  • Proficiency in Python is mandatory, with substantial knowledge of ML libraries such as Scikit-Learn; SQL expertise is desirable, as is familiarity with cloud platforms like Azure or comparable platforms, and vector databases like Pinecone.
  • A robust understanding of the lifecycle of statistical and machine learning models encompassing data preparation, technique selection, model selection, hyperparameter tuning, and performance evaluation/improvement.
  • A seasoned background in handling unstructured natural language data, text extraction, and engineering.
  • Preferred experience in Natural Language Processing (NLP) including n-grams, bag of words representation, TF-IDF, semantic parsing, and sentiment analysis.
  • A penchant for Generative AI and large language models including text completion models, semantic embeddings, and familiarity with frameworks such as Langchain is desirable.
  • Sharp analytical and problem-solving abilities with a self-driven nature, capable of functioning autonomously under the guidance of the head of AI labs.
  • An advanced degree in a quantitative discipline like Statistics, Computer Science, Physics, or Mathematics is preferred.
