Software Engineering, Operations, Data Science
Posted on Friday, April 28, 2023


Pendulum has opportunities for Student Researchers for Master and PhD level students and recent graduates.

As a Student Researcher at Pendulum, you will have the opportunity to push the boundaries of AI and optimization — and supply chain - by building cutting-edge machine learning solutions. You will work on problems that bring a direct impact to saving lives and enabling corporations and governments to do more with less, even in extremely low-resource settings and environments. The problems we address need careful transformation of state-of-the-art machine learning techniques to enable robust performance with extremely sparse and noisy data.

What we will do together

  • Work on unique research problems that bring solutions to real-world problems.
  • Push the boundaries of ML techniques in computer vision, graph neural networks, and high-dimensional time-series forecasting.
  • Ship code: develop algorithms and software that will be part of our products for enabling predictive supply chains.
  • Collaborate with a multicultural, global and completely remote team.
  • Document and publish your work at high-impact machine learning conferences.

Pendulum is a venture-backed AI company addressing the global need to do more with less. Pendulum AI-driven supply chain solutions forecast demand, optimize supply and geolocate - continuously improving on their own. The first major investment in AI by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation was in Pendulum; today our technology works for customers across 10+ countries – driving profitable growth and saving lives.

The Pendulum team works across Europe, North America and Africa. We believe in recruiting the best talent in the world, regardless of location. This role will be remote with the freedom to choose how and when to work. Our remote team has been executing at the highest level for a decade. You will have access to your choice of hardware and a travel budget to interact with the distributed team in person. Pendulum has a rigorously horizontal culture that values diversity of every kind.
