Artificial Intelligence / Machine Learning Engineer - Awerian

  • Location
    Cambridge, United Kingdom


Breakthrough technology is vital for strengthening the UK’s Defence and Homeland Security. Join Awerian as an Artificial Intelligence / Machine Learning Engineer and you’ll be at the forefront of the race to protect the UK from the latest technological and cyber threats.

Your work will have a real-world impact. You’ll get to explore pioneering concepts by collaborating with elite multi-disciplinary teams of highly educated and skilled scientists, engineers, and designers. It’s a fantastically challenging, varied and agile role.

As an Artificial Intelligence / Machine Learning Engineer, you’ll get to tackle diverse, real-world challenges from the ground up. You will use your experience in designing and deploying systems that apply ML to a broad range of tasks, pulling together third party components, as well as building elements yourself.

Awerian’s wide variety of intriguing projects, from proof-of-concept through to working prototypes, provide both intellectual and practical challenges. They’ll test your broad exposure to the ML development cycle: data I/O, cleaning and preparation, rapid ML code prototyping, iterating model designs and deploying and packaging code into client-ready products. The sense of job satisfaction will be tangible as you stretch your knowledge and capabilities into new areas of pioneering research and development.

Why Awerian?

Awerian is no ordinary research & development consultancy. Immediately you’ll be encouraged to share and implement your ideas - there’s no ‘newbie’ status, and you’ll benefit from our culture of freedom.

With little hierarchy, there are no corporate hoops to jump through. This, along with our flat structure, encourages mutual support, teamwork, and innovation. It also creates unique opportunities to develop skills in project leadership and client management to keep your professional development on track.

You’ll be supported by our team of experts. We’re a business of individuals – however, our curiosity brings us together and it drives what we do. The key to your success is communication. Whether you’re leading a project or part of a team, the whole structure of Awerian is designed to help you connect, thrive, and feel included.


The projects are cutting-edge and confidential – so you’ll need to be eligible for UK security clearance.

Your excellent academic credentials and relevant experience (whether it’s extracurricular, academic research, or employment) will also help to ensure your application is shortlisted.

To succeed in the role, you’ll need a working knowledge of Python and current ML frameworks, and ideally experience in Scikit-learn, TensorFlow, Keras, PyTorch or similar. If you can bring a working knowledge of building ML solutions for resource-constrained situations and current edge-processing platforms, your application will have a distinct edge.

Furthermore, a solid understanding of engineering fundamentals and physical principles combined with the communication skills to put them into practice will be highly beneficial for this role.
