We are looking for talented mathematicians, physicists and computer scientists to join our group of data scientists and machine learning engineers in the Industrial, Consumer and Energy division. We do machine learning, computer vision, robotics, Bayesian inference, signal processing, sensing, modelling and more – whatever it takes for whatever we’re making.  We have the privilege to work with a wide range of ambitious clients who want to develop new technology.  As a result we work across a huge range of projects, from agricultural and industrial robotics, to indoor location systems, to hyperspectral imaging of skin.

We are looking for people who are motivated by the idea of applying their data analysis and modelling skills to real-world engineering.

Successful candidates will be available to start from September 2023.


Role description

You will be responsible for implementing and evaluating algorithms as part of our many technology development projects. Often you will work as part of a multi-disciplinary team. You'll have to get your head round the data you're working with which can range from imagery to radar to amino acid sequences and use that understanding to help design the right algorithms that will help achieve the project's goals.

Practical software experience, especially in Python, MATLAB or R, could help you get off to a flying start here, as could a Masters degree or PhD in a relevant subject, but these are not essential. Our collaborative and supportive working environment allows our engineers to quickly develop their skills and knowledge in unfamiliar areas.

This role provides a valuable opportunity to work alongside and learn from more experienced colleagues in both your own and related fields. As you grow in experience you will get the opportunity to take on increasingly challenging tasks and will start to take on more responsibility for interactions with our clients, working with others to identify and define the technical solutions that will solve their problems.

While we take the quality of our work very seriously, you will find that we have a friendly and informal work environment. Whilst we can have busier periods when deadlines approach, we care about having a healthy work-life balance.


Your Experience 

  • Excellent first degree in maths, physics, computer science, or engineering
  • The ability to communicate technical concepts to non-experts
  • The ability and desire to work as part of a team
