About Us

NannyML is an early stage venture funded start-up. At NannyML we build enterprise software for supervising and correcting ML systems in production. That includes detecting data and concept drift, estimating performance loss and suggesting corrective actions as well as a dashboard that presents all these insights for business and technical users. Our goal is to ensure that ML systems keep adding value and that insights that can be extracted from ML systems are clearly communicated to business stakeholders. We want to make ML in production effortless to interact with and extract value from.

About the Role

We are looking for a Senior Software Engineer to architect and build a great product as our first employee. You will be working closely with the founding team. Our expertise is in leveraging business information, exploiting data and prototyping data solutions. Your expertise comes in to complement the team: you will be responsible for product development from the software and data engineering side: from designing engineering processes, brainstorming with the founders, through prototyping and first implementation to architectural choices and frameworks. You will have the ownership and the decision making power to shape everything that lies between product and research. As we grow NannyML we expect you to grow with us. We envision your path may grow your position into VP of engineering or similar.

We are an early stage startup, and so you will wear many hats and be expected to do what's needed for the company to succeed, including working on things that you don't know anything about and at weird times from time to time — we all are. You will have the opportunity to get meaningfully involved in the areas of product, engineering, hiring and people management among others.

We value freedom with responsibility, transparency and a growth mindset. We believe in generating our own luck by trying out new stuff, always asking, constantly learning, reading and meeting new people with different world-views. We value trying new things, and appreciate that from time to time things may break in the process. Working at NannyML you will have full autonomy to make impactful decisions and prioritise and organise your work the way you see fit.

Please do not apply for this role if you are not physically located in Europe, Africa or the Middle East (UTC-2 to UTC+3) or you are not fully willing to relocate immediately. This is a fully remote position, however we will be working with you very closely, so significant work hours overlap is necessary. You also need to be able to fly to Belgium or Portugal as needed.

Experience with early stage product is absolutely necessary. If you don't have such experience please do not apply. Please bear in mind that this is not a web development position, while web development might be a small part of what you do, it is not going to be your main focus.
