At TDK Qeexo, we are transforming the utilization and interaction with sensor data. As pioneers in automating end-to-end machine learning for edge devices, we are reshaping the landscape of "tinyML" development. Collaborating with leading global companies, we empower teams to effortlessly devise and implement machine learning solutions for industrial applications, all without the need for coding. Originating as a spin-off from Carnegie Mellon University in 2012, we are now a proud part of TDK Corporation, a prominent global player in sensor technology.

We are looking for a machine learning expert who loves working with sensor data, loves developing novel algorithms, is not afraid of challenging, open-ended problems, and wants to help us shape the future of lightweight machine learning. You will be working with a highly capable team of machine learning engineers and will have the opportunity to make a meaningful impact on the growth of a burgeoning industry.

As a Machine Learning Research Engineer, your responsibilities will include:

  • Researching and implementing new machine learning techniques for use in Qeexo products
  • Creating machine learning solutions for new applications from start to finish: from formulation of the problem to a commercial-grade solution
  • Designing, writing, and maintaining software supporting Qeexo’s machine learning pipeline and research codebase
  • Designing and executing experiments to advance our understanding of machine learning with time-series sensor data and related techniques

Ideal Candidate
