We are looking for a person who enjoys developing data-driven applications and intelligent solutions together with a team of data scientists, software developers, designers and clients.

As a senior, you are responsible for being a hands-on lead data scientist in client projects. You might be coaching others to learn more, and definitely, you'd be constantly learning new technologies yourself. In your role, you will code with Python or some other machine learning related programming language and use relevant data science libraries. You will deploy the services on cloud platforms like AWS or Microsoft Azure. You don't need to be familiar with all existing data science tools, but we expect you to constantly learn and experiment.

You are a software professional with a solid machine learning experience. You enjoy designing robust and scalable backend software using modern software engineering practices. You understand that the core of this role is not just about training a machine learning algorithm. As a machine learning engineer, you are capable of building REST APIs to integrate a machine learning component with a larger application.

You are comfortable with negotiating with clients when needed. You are a fluent communicator both in English and Finnish. Presentation skills and sales experience are beneficial in this role.

Would you like to come and help us? Please send your application by 18th of August at the latest with evidence of your skills and motivation.
