Iris.ai is working on developing ML driven software tools for assisting scientists throughout their
challenging work endeavours. The ultimate goal is to build a fully fledged science assistant machine that can read and understand scientific articles. Our current and future employees are building software that can read and understand text, build knowledge graphs and causal relations between documents and do inference on top to connect the dots and give suggestions for future innovation. Our developers throughout their work are utilizing the fruits of our own machine learning research, combine it together with the cutting-edge open source frameworks provided by top companies such as Amazon, Google, Facebook and Nvidia and deploy the results on the Amazon AWS infrastructure to develop further our distributed cloud-based machine learning software system.
The Senior Python Developer at Iris.ai is a position that requires technical knowledge and expertise with Python, Django as web framework, design patterns and software architecture skills. You will be expected to motivate, guide and inspire your peers through the development process. As part of the development you will be taking part in presenting and explaining the products and technologies you are working on to the business and sales team and to outside parties (such as customers, investors, potential recruits, etc.). As a key team member you should focus also on driving innovation, and whenever possible facilitating and researching improvements and providing suggestions and opinion for future company developments. Another key aspect is the close collaboration and common language with the AI research team, since lots of projects would require your competence to plan and prepare the research results for actual production implementation.
The work will consist of planning, designing and implementation of particular software systems (new business features, integration of AI research results provided by the research team, etc.). The person will be expected to participate actively in driving innovation in the company, and spreading the word about it to the public whenever necessary and with respect to the company policies. In addition, she/he will have to support the existing software applications and be involved in the product specification process. The work should not require immediate supervision, meaning the person should be able to self-manage and manage other people assigned to her/him in meeting the predefined goals and requirements.
