Who we are

We are building Helsing to keep our democracies from harm. We believe that software – and artificial intelligence in particular – will be the key capability to do just that. Our mission is to attract Europe’s best mission-driven tech talent and apply their capabilities to some of the most complex problems in defence technology.
We are looking for people with their heart in the right place, who share our conviction that our democratic values are worth protecting, for ourselves and for future generations. We are a diverse team of software engineers, deep learning specialists and customer-facing programme managers, working on some of the most challenging problems in the defence space.
We care about our work and mission, and we welcome open and transparent discussions about the use of AI, its benefits and its ethical implications.

Your Impact

You will be part of a team that conceptualises, develops, tests, and integrates novel AI algorithms based on state of the art research for our distributed perception platform and edge capabilities.

What you will work on

You will develop, train and evaluate novel Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithms and methods that allow perception at the edge and decision support for real world applications in distributed and decentralised environments.

Who we are looking for

Nice to Have

  • PhD in robotics, computer science, engineering or related field
  • You have designed, developed, evaluated state of the art AI methods on edge devices with limited compute resources
  • Hands-on experience with one of the following: Object Tracking (MOT or SOT), Object Detection (YOLO, FasterRCNN, etc.), Metric Learning for Few- and Zero-Shot learning, or Generative Models (GANs, VAE, etc)
  • Good grasp of modern neural network architectures e.g., FPN, SPP, Transformers, Graph NNs, etc
  • Authored publications in top-tier conferences, e.g., CVPR, NIPS, ICCV, ICRA, IROS, etc
  • Participation in machine learning competitions (Kaggle etc)
  • Experience in managing a multidisciplinary team of AI engineers and software engineers
  • Exposure to end-to-end product delivery by leading technical discussions and projects
