About us

The appliedAI Initiative is Germany's largest initiative fostering the application of AI technology in the German industry landscape. We aim to lift Germany to the AI age by accelerating the adoption of AI technology. We do this through education (with e.g.: NVIDIA, Google, Startups, and DAX Companies), implementation of machine-learning software and infrastructure solutions with companies (e.g. in the domain of AI-based automation, computer vision, reinforcement learning) and by providing a neutral ground for knowledge exchange between key players in the AI space (see our partners).

Your mission

We are looking for a (Senior) Technical AI Project Manager that takes over responsibility for advising and managing AI development teams. You will work long-term (~1 year) with a group of engineering teams in different companies on building strategically relevant AI systems from exploration to deployment. You will act as the first point of contact for project teams regarding project management as well as technical expertise in close alignment with the joint expertise of the overall appliedAI team.

In your role you will be surveying relevant fields in statistics and machine learning, review standard practice, off-the-shelf solutions and recent advances in the field and look for matches to our customer’s problems and products. You will bring this expertise into development teams in a mentoring role and collaborate with engineering teams in algorithm / model design. Furthermore, you will make sure reusable artifacts are collected in a central repository and thereby made available to our engineering teams for future projects.

Candidates should have experience in building and maintaining ML-based software, above average communication skills (enabling others will be a key aspect of your job!) and a willingness to learn new skills.

Your profile

  • M.Sc. / Ph.D. in STEM with strong experience in (AI) software development
