In this role, you will be critical in building a dependable team that strives. You partner with cross-functional teams, identify the most high-value projects and keep the team focused on them.

You'll be working with an accomplished remote team of senior engineers and ML professionals who have created market-leading algorithms that are in use worldwide.

You'll be joining a team that has already successfully launched one product in the medical domain, with several more in the pipeline, and you'll have the opportunity to be part of these exciting developments!

Key responsibilities:

  • Continuous improvements: Be proactive and regularly propose and implement improvements in all aspects, from code to documentation, performance and processes. You take ownership, and we trust you to use your best judgment to address unplanned issues when necessary (we are all about empowering engineers and reducing the noise around them).
