Do you have a strong math background, with extensive understanding of machine learning, statistics and probabilities?

As a Machine Learning Scientist, you will be part of the R&D Digital Innovation team. You’ll be supported by team members with a diverse set of skills, and your contribution as a Machine Learning Scientist will be valuable to developers and machine learning engineers.

You will be working on exciting topics such as:
●    Developing deep learning algorithms, primarily for advanced computer vision or NLP
●    Developing implementing and maintaining state of the art deep neural networks
●    Exploring and experimenting with state-of-the-art deep learning techniques for time series analysis, advanced text mining, physical modelling or computer vision
●    Extracting, cleaning and formatting data from various heterogeneous sources 
●    Ensure best practices in MLOps and monitoring model drift
●    Development on GPU or distributed environments
●    Collaborating with developers and data scientist to deliver integrated projects
●    Innovation and technology monitoring, looking for applications of recent research

You will also work with the team's project managers to design and deliver high-quality cutting-edge technology projects. This will involve scoping the problem, assessing possible technical approaches, estimating time and effort and developing Machine Learning projects that meet the needs of the business customer.

Our teams are set up to work flexibly and we provide a full suite of IT equipment to ensure that our employees can work from home comfortably and effectively. Eugénie Roques VIE - Developer says “The digital innovation team allows flexible working hours and respects that all members have their own schedule.
