We all need food, but buying groceries is time consuming and boring. Hence, we rethought how people buy their food. We are the first online supermarket that deliveries all groceries for the lowest price to the people’s home, without delivery fees. And when people do their grocery shopping by simply pushing a button, things change for the better. Less food waste, less food miles, more time for the things that really matter in life.

Data at its core, fueled by machine learning, with relentless focus on innovation. Our ambition and drive did not remain a secret for long: 2015 challenger award, 2016 best start-up award, 2017 most innovative company award.

We are looking for bright Machine Learning Engineers to join our rapidly expanding team. Do you have what it takes?

Who are you?

You are deeply comfortable with machine learning, love to wade through huge data sets, smile while massaging complex models, and you are only satisfied when your models are calibrated with a minimal and unbiased error. You are a self-driven performer who takes a bit of chaos as a challenge. You love to create structure and value out of complex challenges and ambiguous requirements. Equally important you are also a team player with strong communication skills who is eager to work with many stakeholders.

What you will do

The baseline is set: Every single day we have 10’s of million events, 100’s of thousands visitors, 10’s of thousands orders. Machine Learning engineers work on the entire tech stack – demand prediction for the business planning, order prediction for the shopping app, purchase prediction for the trading systems, warehouse planning for the fulfillment operations, and logistic optimization for the distribution and fleet operation. You are both an enabler of new business and operational processes and driving force behind our continuous optimization programs.

Main requirements

  • Master’s degree or higher in Computer Science or Mathematics, preferable with AI specialization
  • Demonstrated software development experience in Python and one major ML/DL library
  • Experience with NLP, data mining, pattern recognition, recommender system
  • Strong understanding of algorithms and data structures
  • Commitment to quality, performance, and efficiency
