About appliedAI

Who we are

The appliedAI Initiative is Germany's largest initiative fostering the application of AI technology in the German industry landscape. We aim to lift Germany to the AI age by accelerating the adoption of AI technology. We do this through education (with e.g.: NVIDIA, Google, Startups, and DAX-Companies), implementation of machine-learning software and infrastructure solutions with companies (e.g. in the domain of AI-based automation, computer vision, reinforcement learning) and by providing a neutral ground for knowledge exchange between key players in the AI space (see our partners).

About you

(Senior) Software Engineer / Software Architect (m/f/x)

We are looking for a (senior) Software Engineer with experience in designing, building and maintaining reliable and scalable customer-facing software / services, above average communication skills and a willingness to learn new ones. It would be advantageous to have a good understanding of how larger companies think and act, and what the challenges are in deploying software systems for such customers at scale. As a senior software engineer, you will be expected to take a lead role in designing system architectures and structuring the implementation, but also to get your hands dirty and build key components / services with the team and mentor talented junior developers. You will work together with our senior AI Engineers and the lead of the engineering unit when it comes to envisioning solutions. We work with a mixture of agile methodologies and integrate machine learning subsystems in all of our services. You will have a high impact on the future scaling of appliedAI and are assumed to take strategic decisions within your team.
