Machine Learning Engineers work with Research Engineers and Software Engineers on diverse projects including: developing cutting edge algorithms and prototype applications, providing software design and programming support to research projects in the domain of deep learning, robotics and self-driving cars. They are the bridge between basic research and implementation, transferring our theoretical results into real world. And by real world, we mean smart robots.

At Ascent we are creating a passionate and engaging culture, combining the best of academia and product-led environments, providing a balance of structure and flexibility. Our approach encourages collaboration across all groups within the Research and Engineering teams, leading to creativity and innovative breakthroughs at the forefront of robotic research. As a Research Engineer, you'll have option to work on different fields and will be able to do a mix of research and engineering tasks.
