As Senior AI Engineer, and one of the key experts in the scaling process of our AI Engineering team, you will be encouraged to research and prototype and to have the freedom to develop our AI strategy and AI knowledge base.

  • 30+ Nationalities, and counting. At Dealroom, we are happy to be a team of 70 while having 30 different nationalities! At the same time, we believe you would find many like-minded people and perhaps feel in your natural habitat as we are actually operating in a data industry developing a data-focused product and all being quite on a ‘nerdy side’ ;)

  • This will be one hell of a ride! We have just secured another fundraise in September, further investing in our team and doubling our AI team in the upcoming year!
