The problem we are trying to solve:

We have available terabytes of flights, events and news data and we constantly add new data sources.

Master’s degree or PhD in Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning or related technical field experience.
Proficiency in Python
Experience in working in a production environment, follow software engineering best practices and operate with a scientific mindset.
Strong understanding of machine learning techniques and algorithms. Ability to evaluate models keeping in mind performance, robustness and maintainability.
Research or industry experience in machine learning modelling, infrastructure, natural language processing or deep learning.
What you’ll be doing:
Design and deploy models improving travel demand prediction using contextual data and other industry sources.
Explore and extract signals from unstructured (news articles, event websites and other text sources) data sources to explain anomalies in travel patterns.
Turn business objectives into engineering and modelling projects, break them down in manageable components and deliver them autonomously.
Experiment with feature extraction, model design and system evaluation.
Lead and mentor your team and colleagues as well as assist in hiring team members.
