  • Write technical reports 
  • Work with, and be mentored by, a senior member of the AI Research Team. 

Who you are:

Committed to making your customers, stakeholders and colleagues successful, you’re an excellent communicator, listener and collaborator who builds trusted partnerships by delivering what you say, when you say. You’re curious, solutions orientated and a world class problem solver who constantly seeks opportunities to innovate and achieve the best possible outcome to the highest imaginable standard. 

You will have:

  • Strong mathematical background (including e.g. linear algebra, probability theory, signal processing) 
  • Currently studying at undergraduate, masters or PhD level (machine learning, computer vision or a related area) 
  • A physics, engineering, applied mathematics, or a computer science background 
  • Experience with Python or C/C++ development 

You might also be:

  • Experience with at least one of the following tools: Tensorflow, caffe, pytorch, mxnet, keras, OpenCV 
  • Practical experience of applying machine learning to real world problems
