Machine Learning Engineer - Talent Program

40 hours a week

Are you a talented Data Scientist, Data Engineer, or Machine Learning Engineer looking for your first next career move? We’re looking for professionals that are not satisfied with solving just one piece of the puzzle. Young professionals with the right background, ambition, and potential to be skilled in the entire data pipeline: from data storage to model development, and deployment in a cloud environment. Solving data challenges from start to finish. Sounds like you? Then join us as a Machine Learning Engineer, and we’ll help you to get there!

Please note that this position is only available to people currently living in the Netherlands.

Working as a Machine Learning Engineer

As a Machine Learning Engineer at Xomnia you will work on challenging projects for one of our clients. Projects usually either cover data science-related topics, such as fraud & anomaly detection, time series forecasts, and recommender systems, or data engineering challenges such as building data pipelines, developing on cloud architectures, productionizing machine learning models, and building custom software solutions. Together with the team you follow the best practices in the field and ensure the right level of automation.

In practical terms, you will spend every Monday to Thursday being fully focused on working at the challenges of our clients. But although we very much believe in further developing your technical and consultancy skills in a hands-on way, we also offer you a comprehensive two-year development program to leverage the expertise and experience we have within Xomnia.

In the first year every Friday morning, you will dive deeper into various data engineering or data science concepts and technologies. In addition, Xomnia’s senior technical team will coach you on the challenges you face in your daily work, whatever those may be. In the afternoon, you will continue working on your client project with the knowledge of our senior team at your disposal.

In the second year, you will follow our core team development program. With the support and guidance of our experienced team, you will make an impact at organizations such as Adidas, ProRail, or the National Police whilst further developing yourself as a top-notch Machine Learning Engineer.
