Machine Learning Engineer

We are a Belgian-American wearable health startup with offices in Antwerp, Belgium and Silicon Valley, California. Our goal? To become a global wearable health leader, make the Byteflies brand synonymous with medical wearables, and be at the forefront of healthcare and clinical trial innovation. If that piqued your interest, you came to the right place!

You are an experienced applied ML engineer. You join our Antwerp team to design pattern recognition and data integration models to derive medical insights from physiologic time series. Additionally, you know your way around more traditional signal processing workflows for time series processing such as artifact detection and signal clean-up. You don't break a sweat when handed hundreds of gigabytes worth of time series data, and you can scale from embedded to distributed server systems. Ideally, you have at least some notion of the most common physiologic time series and their relevance.

Your role

  • Design and implement ML models for feature extraction, pattern recognition, and multimodal data integration
  • Design and implement scalable signal processing algorithms for the pre/post-processing of physiologic time series
  • Assist in designing and building a signal processing pipeline that will crunch huge amounts of customer data
  • Excellent team player who can translate feedback into clear and concise code
  • Guide embedded, front-end and back-end engineers to implement your algorithms and models in the larger platform

Your skills

  • PhD in computer science, mathematics, biomedical engineering, or equivalent OR similar master of science with AT LEAST 2 years of relevant experience
  • Fluent in Python or equivalent (we lean heavily on Python/Jupyter)
  • Excellent knowledge of at least one ML framework (we use TensorFlow)
  • Neural networks, filter design, feature extraction and feature engineering, artifact detection ... are all in your toolbox
  • Familiarity with at least one cloud platform (we use Google Cloud Platform) and containerizing your work
  • Quick learner who's comfortable around scientific literature
  • High-achiever who thrives in a fast-paced and multidisciplinary environment, and is willing to go the extra mile when the job calls for it
  • Professional fluency in English and team player with good communication skills (Byteflies is an English-speaking company)

We can dream

  • Any combination of the following buzzwords applies: Python aficionado, (Convolutional) NN architect, feature engineering wizard, TensorFlow/Keras pundit, Google Cloud Platform maestro, big/deep data savant
  • (Some) background in physiology and assorted features

We offer

  • Competitive salary
  • Rapid career development paths
  • Public transport reimbursement
  • Twenty paid vacation days
  • Laptop (Macbook)
  • Work-permit assistance (if applicable)
  • Awesome co-workers
  • Great team events
