Machine Learning Engineer

Full-time position


As a Medior/Senior Machine Learning Engineer, you will join the Data Analysis team within the Cell Avidity (CA) R&D division at LUMICKS. You will work on new machine-learning-powered features of the current Z-Movi®, future prototypes and products, and you will have the unique opportunity to grow the products to their full potential.

Together with the rest of the Data Analysis team, you will have a chance to define, iterate and deliver machine learning models which have the potential to make a true impact on cancer research. Your focus will be on delivering state of the art automated cell analysis algorithms exploiting very large amounts of data and the latest deep learning models. You will work together with the software development team to bring models to production. You will also work closely with our agile interdisciplinary engineering teams and applications scientists to define new ways to efficiently collect data to train models with.
