Infrastructure Software Engineer in a fast-growing AI Startup

Others: IT

At the ETH spin-off Lightly, we build software solutions to help companies improve their deep learning models. The available data for deep learning grows faster than human tagging and available compute power. Our customers already face this problem and have too much data to process. As a solution, we built software to identify and work with the most relevant samples only. Learn more about us on our website.

We are a team of talented developers and researchers in Zurich and are backed by YCombinator. Every member of the team is going to have a massive impact.
