About the role

Join us to drive business innovation with production-grade ML pipelines . Become a key member of our team as you dive into Big Data, utilise Azure for cloud computing, and deploy solutions on edge devices.

Collaborate with Data Scientists on impactful AI-powered projects.

Our projects are the tip of the iceberg expect a landscape of more intriguing and diverse challenges ahead.

One of the available projects : T-Rex

Project Scope

In collaboration with a prominent UK-based retailer's data science team, we create solutions for personalisation challenges, such as web-page product... recommendations.

The main objective is to deliver well-engineered components that enable work on modelling and experimentation in a hybrid-cloud environment.

The ultimate goal is to provide an end-to-end experience stretching from pure data, training different models, and creating APIs to deliver self-improving models.

We :
• Work on components to support Big Data processing on an on-prem Hadoop cluster.
• Ensure that high-quality code is delivered.
• Choose the best architecture and tools for the business requirement.
• Push the data to the cloud and select the best way to store and process it.
• Build robust code and architecture to allow easy productisation of data scientists' models with minimal time and effort.
• Enhance monitoring capabilities and reliability.

Python : (3.7+) with complete typing PySpark : base for our ETL Azure (incl. Azure ML) : model training and serving Tensorflow, pandas, scikit-learn, scipy, nltk Jenkins, Azure DevOps, Terraform, Git @ GitHub

Project Challenges

Personalisation models use tens of terabytes of input data. We leverage the Hadoop on-prem cluster to extract significant business features and transfer them to the cloud.

We adopted the hybrid-cloud model to iterate faster on the business use cases given to us by data scientists.


The team consists of a Technical Lead and 3-4 Engineers in Poland. These people collaborate closely with the client's UK-based Data Science Unit.
