Job description
THE RESEARCH TEAM

Our main focus at the moment is on the auto insurance industry: we are building models that can understand the ways in and extent to which a car is damaged. As opposed to most applied DL problems, this is a visual task on which trained experts with decades of experience require ~30 seconds of thinking time to arrive at a decision.

We have currently modelled most of the external parts of a car, which is the basis of our audit product currently being used by 5+ major insurers. In addition to further improvements on these models we are now turning to combining them with metadata and even more sophisticated visual models, with the objective of further accelerating the process of vehicle damage assessment.

RESPONSIBILITIES

As a Deep Learning Researcher at Tractable, you will:

Design, implement creative research solutions to big problems with the possibility to have significant commercial impact

Adapt the latest developments from the lab (in domain adaptation, metric learning, multi-task learning etc.) to work in real-world settings

Identify and prioritise research directions and adapt research processes as the company expands

Advocate and guide strategy for design and product direction

Mentor and advise researchers

Skills & requirements
PhD in Machine Learning or related disciplines from a top research university

Strong publishing track record (ICLR, ICML, NIPS, ICCV, etc) and proven ability to independently produce new research ideas

2+ years of experience using deep learning

Proven ability of writing production-quality research code

Experience using deep learning frameworks (tensorflow or similar)

Excited to work in a small team and take research ideas into the real world
