What are some examples of problems a Machine Learning Engineer solves?

At Nubank, we don't shy away from using the latest machine learning algorithms, techniques and technologies; in fact, we encourage them. We use a database technology that virtually eliminates potential sources of leakage, which means you can spend less time worrying about data quality and more time building the most sophisticated models in the financial services industry. We have rich datasets with natural language text, images, graphs, and much more, as well as more traditional sources of financial data. A machine learning engineer's goal is to help us translate all this into value for Nubank and our customers. Below are just a few of the problems you might solve:
