The demand for ‘Machine Learning’ skills is expected to grow by 71 percent over the next five years. As a discipline, it has been cited as the second most sought-after AI job. For this week's deep dive, we take a look at six companies currently hiring in the ML space, the Deep Tech challenges they are trying to solve, and (most importantly) how you can get involved.
Wandercraft is aiming to restore the ability to stand and walk for people with reduced mobility. To do this, it is utilising robotic technology.
Atalante is Wandercraft’s next-generation walking exoskeleton that enables paraplegic or hemiplegic people to walk again. Used for locomotor rehabilitation in hospitals, Atalante is the first exoskeleton in the world capable of generating its own balance, without its wearer having to stabilise themselves with crutches.
After raising €40M at the end of 2021, Wandercraft is starting a new phase of international growth and is currently looking for a Machine Learning Engineer to join the team.
Reinforcement learning has shown tremendous successes over the last years and legged robots can start to benefit from these advances. As a member of the Dynamic Walk team, the successful applicant will be developing reinforcement learning algorithms to achieve the extreme walk robustness needed for the personal exoskeleton.
Daily activities include developing simulation tools (C++/Python), improving the reinforcement learning framework, implementing embedded algorithms for the exoskeleton (C++) and brainstorming with the team about ways to improve the control algorithms.
If you want to work in a stimulating environment, solving problems and analysing data then this could be the job for you.

ICEYE builds and operates a commercial constellation of small Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) satellites. Its satellites acquire images of Earth, providing commercial and government partners with persistent monitoring capabilities.
Information from the SAR images helps customers make data-driven decisions to address time-critical challenges in various sectors.
The company has a dedicated Machine Learning team which is part of the analytics department. The team is responsible for developing and deploying full-stack machine learning applications that leverage ICEYE’s imagery and SAR phenomenology to create capability in scaling remote sensing solutions in domains such as deforestation and natural catastrophe.
To support its Machine Learning Centre of Excellence in Luxembourg, ICEYE is currently looking for a Senior Machine Learning Engineer to join the team.
The successful candidate will design and train machine learning models on SAR imagery and other geospatial data. They will propose and implement novel approaches to adapt the most advanced deep architectures and you will use libraries and tools such as PyTorch and Docker in an AWS EC2 environment to create deep learning, containerised applications.
If you are constantly pondering ways to apply novel new open-source machine learning to unique data sets, then perhaps this is the job for you.
Mindtech has created a software platform designed to accelerate the development of AI (Artificial Intelligence) solutions.
Called Chameleon, the platform enables machine learning engineers to create synthetic images and image sequences with advanced, fully accurate annotation data. This is achieved through an automated, behaviour led simulator, that ensures data is statistically and structurally similar to real world data. This is then used to train AI systems, with a particular focus on human behaviour understanding and recognition.
A wide variety of opportunities are emerging and to meet the demand, Mindtech is looking to expand its product management team.
The successful candidate will help Mindtech understand the customers’ requirements for their computer vision projects and assist in specifying required data for training AI models to customer specifications. They will also help the customer analyse results and make proposals for best practices and enhancing training.
If you wish to play a vital part in ensuring the success of Mindtech, then why not consider joining the team?
