R&D Machine Learning Engineer - Biometrics

Job description

Join our Computer Vision and Machine learning team, where things move fast and where we build great AI technology with our talented team of research engineers. We work with CNN's indiscriminative and generative model scopes, with RNNs, OCR using technologies such as Python, C++, TensorFlow, OpenCV, and many more to create the best and most secure AI online onboarding flow for our clients.


We are on a mission to automate the most critical online onboarding solution to catch crime and identity fraud! We want to do this by the sheer commitment, knowledge, and cooperation of our Computer Vision engineers and researchers to make sure that our solution is impenetrable and the most reliable of its kind. And we have done some really cool things already… Now we need you to help us get even better in this part! So, bring it on…


Your job at Fourthline

We think it is fair to say that you can prepare yourself for the ride and learning experience of your lifetime. We have the best engineers to work with. We will not (and cannot) tell you everything in detail here, impossible! So many cool things going on, but more generic:

  • Build, improve and work on our AI platform with multiple computer vision techniques.
    • Create prototypes and products using: Python, C++, OpenCV, TensorFlow, and more (you can add new things if it suits our goals).
    • Continuously optimize our technology based on millions of newly processed images.
  • Work together with our dedicated (and genuinely fun!) team to make the best product we can think of… Or better… Make it something we couldn’t even dream of… You rock!
  • Communication is key! Since we work with our AI DevOps team, Fraud team, our KYC development team, and our Mobile teams we and you need to make sure your new model is of added value to everyone.
  • To learn as a professional yourself as well... We like the continuous learning attitude, you are in good hands here! We do weekly knowledge-sharing sessions to keep ourselves up to date and discuss the most recent research, new tech, and fundamentals in computer science!
