At Quora, our mission is to share and grow the world’s knowledge. We do that by connecting people with questions to people with answers. On Quora, people share insights that help others make meaningful life decisions and better understand the world. Your experience on Quora is unique, as is the wisdom you have to offer or the things you want to learn. Our engineering team is constantly iterating, solving problems and working together to help people share their knowledge on Quora.
We use Machine Learning in almost every part of the product - feed ranking, NLP, answer ranking, search, topic and user recommendations, spam detection etc. As a PhD intern, you have the unique opportunity of bringing the cutting edge machine learning research into a product that affect over 200 million users. With Quora's experiment framework, you can see how your work during the internship affect the user engagement through A/B testing experiment.
