Job Description

Software Engineer (Full-Stack)

We believe that AI should be transparent and responsible by design, and we’re looking for versatile people who can help us create it.

As a Full-Stack Software Engineer, you will join the rapidly growing Engineering team at our University of Oxford machine learning company to help us realise a future where AI and Humans collaborate to solve the world’s most important problems.

Location: Remote (UK), or office-based (incl. mixed)

You’ll share your days with teams of talented software engineers, scientists, designers, and product specialists. Together, you will take ideas from concept to production, making elegant and maintainable solutions to complex data-centric problems. You’ll help build an exciting portfolio of products that will have a real and positive impact on society, the environment, and the individual lives of people across the globe.

As a Full-Stack Software Engineer, you will be at the heart of the engineering effort that enables the delivery of state-of-the-art AI/ML in a diverse range of projects. Currently, active projects you will be working on include work with our Quantum Technologies team, which delivers AI solutions for managing and operating quantum devices, or with our team developing AI solutions, using computer vision to detect degradation in civil infrastructure, like bridges.

You will work with users on new features, rapidly prototyping, exploring and validating ideas, and designing and developing features for scalable, secure, and observable cloud-based systems.

We grow and succeed together by working in collaborative, flexible, and self-organising remote-first teams where your passion for software engineering and product development will allow you to thrive.

Working at Mind Foundry will provide an excellent platform for you to grow, learn, and have a real impact on the important problems in the world by helping us to make our vision a reality.

ABOUT YOU

We understand that no single person can do it all, and we don't expect everyone to be an expert in every aspect of frontend, backend & DevOps, but you’ll need skills & experience across many levels of a web app stack.

You will have at least two years of commercial software engineering experience and be fluent in at least one high-level programming language. We primarily use Python and JavaScript/TypeScript.

Our core technology stack is Python Machine Learning, Kubernetes, PostgreSQL, React, and Node.js. We’d love for you to have experience in more than one of those, although if you have equivalent experience in different technology stacks and have transferable skills, we’d still love to hear from you.

You will have a degree in a technical discipline such as Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics, etc., or equivalent skills and knowledge.

You will have experience working in an iterative Agile environment and an understanding of the DevOps movement, its tools and its culture.

At Mind Foundry, you’ll be working with and learning from experts in a wide range of technologies and skills. We’d love it if you have experience in the following areas. If you’re already an expert, even better! If not, we can help you pick them up along the way.

  • Wider software engineering skills, like scripting, CI/CD, UI/UX, design, databases
  • Experience architecting and designing complex software systems for the cloud
  • Experience working closely with users, working out what to build and why
  • Understanding of Machine Learning, AI, or Data Science, including experience deploying ML in production or commercial applications
  • Familiarity with other technologies in our stack like Java, Protobuf/gRPC, FastAPI, Redux, AWS
  • Experience with modern numeric, big data frameworks, and MLOps such as Sklearn, Pandas, PyTorch, Spark, Numba, Kafka, Apache Arrow, Parquet, MLFlow, KServe
  • Experience working with edge hardware found closer to the edge, such as FPGAs, microcontrollers, or Jetson Nanos

We would love to hear from you if this sounds like you and what you believe you can achieve!
