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).

appliedAI Engineering develops proofs of concept and products in a wide variety of domains, ranging from graph analysis, process automation and time series analysis to optimal control and reinforcement learning in industry. We find the hot topics in AI with the most impact in industry and society and conduct research with the goal of transferring academic knowledge into practice.

Your mission

As a (senior) AI Engineer you will drive the application of AI in real world settings. We deeply understand that building AI solutions is more than hacking scripts and notebooks together. We see it as an engineering discipline and therefore mix the notion of Software Engineering and AI Research. Pragmatism and an understanding of the tools of computer science are essential to well designed AI products. As a (senior) AI Engineer you will work on state-of-the-art approaches and challenges of AI as well as software engineering. Together with our team of AI and Software Engineers, you will also be responsible for helping our partner companies take your application from proof of concept to rolling it out across their organization.
