About Us

NannyML is an early stage venture funded start-up. At NannyML we build enterprise software for supervising and correcting ML systems in production. That includes detecting data and concept drift, estimating performance loss and suggesting corrective actions as well as a dashboard that presents all these insights for business and technical users. Our goal is to ensure that ML systems keep adding value and that insights that can be extracted from ML systems are clearly communicated to business stakeholders. We want to make ML in production effortless to interact with and extract value from.

We value freedom with responsibility, transparency and a growth mindset. We believe in generating our own luck by trying out new stuff, always asking, constantly learning, reading and meeting new people with different world-views. We value trying new things, and appreciate that from time to time things may break in the process. Working at NannyML you will have full autonomy to make impactful decisions and prioritise and organise your work the way you see fit.

You will be working closely with the founding team. The team previously founded a machine learning consultancy, where they became experts at building machine learning systems. Our expertise is in leveraging business information, exploiting data and prototyping data solutions.

About the Role

We are looking for a Lead Data Engineer to help architect and build a great product as our first employee.

You will have the ownership and the decision making power to shape everything that lies between product and research. As we grow NannyML we expect you to grow with us. We envision your path may grow your position into VP of engineering or similar. You will have the opportunity to get meaningfully involved in the areas of product, engineering, hiring and people management among others.
