Software Engineer (Python) – with an interest in ML and NLP

Software Engineer – Any language with an interest in NLP and ML
Cardiff (2 days per week)
Data, ML, NLP
£40,000 – £55,000

An old candidate of mine who is now a hiring manager reached out to me yesterday and asked for support with a role at his current company – it’s a banger!

If you have a genuine interest in Data, Machine Learning and NLP and would love to get your teeth into that and learn on the job this is your chance.

They are a year old start up, now a team of 7 who take unstructured data and turns it into actionable insight. You will work along side their Lead Engineer and Architect – who is one of the best people I’ve worked with, super clever, personable with a tonne of skills, also their full stack engineer and 2 data analysts.

You’ll be building tools that their researchers use to construct a new platform – lots of greenfield work – yay! You’ll be utilising their existing datasets with NLP to build a new web crawler to strengthen their core product.
You’ll be working with Python, microservices based and hosted on AWS. They would love to implement CI/CD asap. They would like this person to have a real interest in NLP and Machine Learning development – you don’t need any commercial experience but an interest to learn and work with the tools.

Your skills:

  • Software Engineering experience (min of 2 years’ experience) – in any language but willing to work with Python.

Nice to have but you don’t need to have covered this but an appreciation and interest:

  • Docker
  • AWS or Azure
  • Elasticsearch
  • Postgres
  • CI/CD

Again, if you haven’t had a chance to work with NLP, libraries like Spacy, Transformers (or similar) and Gensim. Machine Learning in general – Pytorch, Scikit-Learn Etc. And have a real interest, and also work for a company with learning at it’s heart then this is for you.

If you don’t think it could get any better. You will be working 4.5 hours per week, no not part time, you’ll be a full time employee and paid as such, but you will get a paid half day per week, and the team are flexible with which day you take off each week as long as it fits with the team. They believe the best ideas, best team and best productivity comes from having time and space to think.

There’s a tonne more to discuss – can you tell I’m excited to recruit for this role?

You’ll need to be able to travel to Cardiff 2 days per week. Salary between £40,00 – £55,000. 2 stage interview process.
