We Offer:

There is a great opportunity for learning from others, and you will have the flexibility to dive into experiments on your own. We are passionate about new solutions, technologies, and algorithms, but pragmatic in our choice of solutions.

 

We are an international business with a lot of contact between our different offices. The position is located in our office in Berlin. We believe in freedom and flexibility under the responsibility.
