About Us

Veniam makes places more human by maximizing the utility of vehicles. Recognized by CNBC and NASDAQ in 2016 and 2017 as one of the 50 most disruptive companies in the world, Veniam is the company with the largest number and diversity of vehicles that talk with each other on a daily basis. Our technology platform therefore enables hundreds of cars, buses, and trucks to move massive amounts of data in cities such as New York, Singapore, and Porto. Powered by a world class team of kind, smart and passionate men and women, Veniam owns a prized IP portfolio of more than 100 patents and is uniquely positioned to deliver the number one data networking platform for autonomous vehicles and the Internet of Moving Things.

About Your Role

Veniam is redefining the concept of computer networks by turning vehicles into intelligent networking nodes that are able to move large amounts of data from and to the Cloud. By now, we have gathered more than 50 million miles of data from our main deployments in Porto, Singapore and New York that are allowing us to have a deeper level of understanding of the performance of vehicular networks in urban and industrial environments.

The Veniam’s Data team is now beginning a new chapter where we are using the data logged by vehicles and access points to create decision models that aim to optimize the performance of our networks. This is where you come in.

As a Senior Data Engineer you will work in close collaboration with Veniam’s Head of Data on the architecture for  data ingestion, processing and creation of machine learning models. Your team will be implementing data pipelines and automating model training by working closely with Data Scientists for designing the models, making experiments, answering questions and testing hypotheses. You will also work closely with Veniam’s Platform Engineering team in bringing your solutions into production. In Veniam, you will have the opportunity to work with cutting-edge tools in a creative team that is always challenging itself!

If you love distributed systems, machine learning and AI, want to be part of a talented team that wants to hear your voice, if fun and work kind of mix together in your head, or if you are thrilled by reading this post, then, this job is for you! 🙂
