If you are ready to solve hard technical problems alongside of the best A.I. researchers and engineers in the world, we want to hear from you.

Open Positions


About Twenty Billion Neurons

We are an artificial intelligence startup that applies recent breakthroughs in Deep Learning to real-world video understanding. We are developing new, ground-breaking technology that allows machines to perceive the world like humans. Our technology can analyze video and extract meaning from it in real-time. We build Deep Learning systems using our large video datasets about common world situations. Our company language is English, but we speak a lot of German as well.

Your Role

  • You will work in our Berlin team to extend the capabilities of neural networks applied to video understanding and common sense reasoning.
  • You will research on e.g. recurrent networks, attention policies, multi-task learning and scaling up training.
  • You will give hands-on guidance to our junior team members and enable them to create cutting edge deep neural networks.
  • You will present your work at top international conferences and journals in the area, such as NIPS, ICLR, CVPR, PAMI.
  • You will help define and shape a research agenda at the forefront of Deep Learning and AI.

Your Profile

  • You completed your PhD or Master in Computer Science or other relevant fields and had significant exposure to Deep Learning. Ideally you have already published papers at high-profile conferences.
  • You have extensive knowledge of Python, as well as Tensorflow, Theano or similar Deep Learning frameworks.
  • You have experiences in leading (small) teams, and sharing your knowledge with others, ideally in agile development environments.
  • You have very strong communication skills.
  • You don’t mind getting your hands dirty to solve difficult technical problems.
  • You are passionate about Artificial Intelligence and believe that it is the most transformative technology that currently exists.
  • You think big and want to take part in defining the future of AI and Deep Learning.
