Data Engineer

  • Full-time

Company Description

How robust are supply chains in this age of globalisation?

Recent experience shows not nearly enough.

We've seen toilet roll stockpiling at the start of the pandemic

Semiconductor shortages stopping smartphone or electric car production...

Evidence of Modern Slavery in the fashion industry supply chain...

The impact of conflict on global food and energy prices...

At Versed AI we're helping companies take action to address these issues with AI-powered supply chain visibility.

Our tech is cutting edge AI (NLP & ML) that surfaces previously-unknown supplier relationships.  Our customers use this insight to make better decisions and take meaningful action - improving their supply chain's resilience, environmental and ethical performance.

Spun out from our CTO's academic research at Cambridge University and backed by Tech Nation, Founders Factory, Innovate UK, the Royal Academy of Engineering and others, we're now looking for a Data Engineer to help us scale.
