Recommender Systems Hire

Trinity College Dublin /ADAPT hires one software architect/product manager and one software engineer to spin-out a business start-up in the field of recommender systems and machine learning.

The School of Computer Science and Statistics of Trinity College Dublin and the ADAPT Centre received funding to hire 2 employees for 2 years to spin-out a business start-up in the field of recommendations-as-a-service and machine learning. The two positions are to be filled with one software engineer and one software architect/product manager, whereas both employees are expected to work together very closely. They will be responsible for developing a recommender-system as-a-service that uses a unique technology, based on the research of Prof Dr Joeran Beel who will be the project lead (read here for a brief outline of the idea). The new project will be based on the existing prototype Mr DLib. However, the current recommender system prototype is supposed to be re-designed, re-implemented, and extended with various features, mostly relating to enhanced machine-learning algorithms. The goal for the two-year period is to develop a market-ready recommender system prototype, acquire around 10 more pilot partners, and spin-out a start-up company at the end of the two years. The two employees to be hired are expected to be the founders of the start-up company, together with Joeran Beel. Salaries for both positions are between €47,676 and €56,021 per annum, and all founders of the start-up shall receive equity after the spin-out.
