You should appreciate structure and have a good ability to write scalable code on a structural or architectural level, whilst also being able to work at a micro-level with algorithms.

You should hold a MSc in Computer Science and be passionate about software engineering. Professional work experience in software engineering may serve equally well, but a solid understanding of the fundamentals of software engineering is a requirement.

Your role will primarily involve constructing the backbone of our databases, workflows, and pipeline solutions which will integrate to systems for AI and Machine Learning.
