Data Scientist [Medior/Senior] Central-North Portugal, PT

Porto, Porto District
Work Type: Contract

Are you obsessed with the possibilities of the emerging fields of artificial intelligence? We’re looking for an aspiring Data Scientist (Medior / Senior) who wants to help deliver real world solutions.

Who are we?

We are the DEUS initiative, and we are all about exploring AI in the service of humanity. No, we are not calling ourselves gods(!), but our name is a reference to ‘deus ex machina’ (or god from the machine in Latin). We believe that artificial intelligence technologies such as machine learning, computer vision and natural language processing will have a massive impact on the way we live, and we want to make sure that we create a positive impact on the world with these AI services.

As a happy coincidence, DEUS is also an acronym representing the quadrivium of key disciplines we believe are important to building successful AI-powered services: Data / Engineering / User-experience design / Strategy.

DEUS is a new initiative, but the founders have been working together very successfully for years, so there is a comfortable family feel to the company. We have an amazing set of international client partnerships (and projects/challenges). Our headquarters is located in the heart of the city centre of Amsterdam at the Brouwersgracht. We also have a team in Portugal that is based out of the beautiful city of Porto with an office close to the beach,  and our Spanish team is based out of the charming center of A Coruña!

Who are you?

  • You have at least 3/5 years of experience in Machine Learning-driven projects and, with at least, one of following areas: Natural Language Processing, Computer Vision or Forecasting (and skilled in its applications)
  • You have a cross understanding of all Machine Learning fields together (Supervised, Unsupervised and Reinforcement Learning) with methodologies to develop and maintain AI solutions.
  • You have experience and a good understanding of how to extend and work with LLMs such as BERT, GPT, LlaMa2, Falcon-40B or similar models. [Experience with Transformers is a bonus]

...and some more points:

  • Written and verbal English is the only core requirement.
  • You have experience in stakeholder management from initial brainstorming and requirements elicitation to solution deployment and dev-ops. You should be able to pilot any given AI project, and together with the Data Science team devise a solution that respect both customer and DEUS.AI interests and ethics.
  • You take initiative to explore and work on new solutions and approaches together with the stakeholders that might entail problem (re)formulations, proposal of new technologies and development of disruptive solutions.
  • You are a problem solver who is able to balance the needs and priorities of project stakeholders and teams.

We are dedicated to making a friendly and inclusive workplace. To put it bluntly, there is an unwritten ‘no assholes’ policy that applies to both ourselves and our clients, as we always want to enjoy our team dynamic. We do trips, conferences and events together on a regular basis, and we are always committed to cultivating a company that embraces differences. We strongly believe in flexibility, and you will be given a lot of freedom while translating complicated problems into easy-to-use products.
