We're seeking a new machine learning / data genius
YieldComputer is an agri-food-tech start-up that is developing and delivering a prediction service, powered by sensor data and Artificial Intelligence, to soft fruit (strawberries) growers. We aim to better inform soft fruit growers about how much they are most likely to produce 1-4 weeks ahead. Since soft fruit is usually sold in advance, an accurate and timely prediction has a huge benefit on getting a better price for the actual entire volume produced. We have recently secured funding to work towards a commercially viable product and have strong growth targets for 2021-2022 (link) and are looking for an expansion of our team.
You will be part of a small (6-8) multi-disciplined development team with hardware experts (working on our smart crop cam), fellow data & machine learning experts (who laid the groundwork on our first models) and front-end developers (building our customer tailored dashboards).
Together with your team members you will have an important role in structuring and implementing the ML roadmap in accordance with our business plan. Besides setting out the ML goals you will also play a crucial role in realising them. This means you will also have to get your hands dirty in the rigorous and structural improvement of our machine and deep learning models that generate real time predictions for our growers.
*) Our offices are based in Eindhoven and Amsterdam. You are flexible to work from home, but we have some mandatory working days together at the office.
