machine learning engineer

We are a young and dynamic, truly ML-centric company working on a moonshot technology. This is a really exciting position offering significant influence on both our modelling program and the company’s direction.

We are pursuing genuinely new, difficult and different goals - this isn't your ImageNet or sentiment analysis - but we have a solid strategy and have already demonstrated unique progress. If you want to be part of the team to crack a huge industry problem, and if you're excited at the thought of developing creative new tools and methods to do so, get in touch!


the Role

As ML employee no. 1, you will have great opportunities to build new functionality and try creative new ideas. We have plenty of exciting avenues to explore! You'll be working directly with founders, and part of a growing team.

We're after someone ambitious who wants to take on big problems and help drive a company in the early stages towards success. Ideally you'll have some prior knowledge of, or interest in, biology and/or chemistry - you'll have to get very familiar with proteins!

There will be lots of pure research, but you may also get involved in key business activities like talking to stakeholders, driving collaborations and contributing to funding applications or publications.

We know that the best people come in all shapes and sizes - that's what makes life interesting. We just care if you have the skills, determination and enthusiasm for the job.

In joining Antiverse you become a huge part of our company and our success. If you want to make an impact, then this is the right place for you.
