  • Automate the ML pipeline using MLOps tools and practices and optimize it for scalability and performance. 
  • Containerize applications  and manage the Kubernetes deployments as well as the infrastructure needed to deploy LLMs internally; from GPUs to vector databases and inference components. 
  • Develop observability best practices for the whole LLM infrastructure and build the internal framework which allows the team to monitor the LLM behavior to ensure their robustness under real life conditions.
