Do you prefer applying ML technology to solve real-world problems today over pushing the boundaries of the state-of-the-art through academic research? Do you actively want to raise the adoption of ML technology through actual use cases? Then the role of a Machine Learning Engineer will definitely trigger your interest

In The Pocket's mission is to create digital products that make people happy and businesses grow. We believe both aspects are crucial for successful digital products, and they will often drive one another. Machine Learning technologies allow us to improve both: by improving the experience of existing products, by enabling new business models based on newly uncovered insights and by enabling a whole range of new digital products with new values streams. Let's leverage ML & data to build even better digital products.  


  • You'll closely collaborate with ML Engineers, Product Managers, Architects, Data Engineers and Software Engineers to define, implement and improve use cases that are enabled through machine learning. It is your job to design, engineer, test, improve and deploy the actual model that is used, but you don't do this in a vacuum. Rather, you're part of a multidisciplinary team where every member is equally responsible for the product's success.
  • You keep up with the latest Machine Learning advances, with a particular focus on what might be applicable in our context. In particular, your enthusiasm for "what is possible" motivates you and we expect you to transfer that enthusiasm to your team mates and even our clients.
  • You actively participate in knowledge sharing both towards peers (lessons learned, new advances, process improvements,..) as well as other people in our organisation (e.g. sales, marketing, product, strategy...). And it doesn't have to stop there: we happily support any initiatives to share our findings with the world, through blogs, talks, podcasts or guest lectures.
  • You clearly communicate and set expectations. What realistic results can be expected? What are the greatest risks/unknowns? Always be open and honest, and don't be afraid to ask for help.


    • You hold a bachelor/master/PhD degree in Computer Science (or related), and a master in Data Science / AI / Statistics or Machine Learning - or you have a proven track record in a similar role.
    • You have a profound knowledge of Python and at least one of the most important machine learning frameworks (Scikit-learn, Tensorflow, Keras, Pytorch,...).
    • You have relevant experience in going beyond running local ML experiments, but bringing ML to production. 
    • You have a broad awareness of the possibilities and limitations of ML, and see how Data and ML can help us build even better products for our clients. 
    • You have an affinity with product design and engineering top-notch digital products.
    • You highly value the principles of clean code, continuous improvement and rapid prototyping. Experience with continuous delivery and/or devops practices is a plus.
    • Any experience with the Google Cloud Platform, AWS or Azure is a plus.
