Machine Learning Engineer

Amsterdam, Netherlands Engineering - Software Team Full-Time

The Role

Skyborn Robotics is looking for an engineer to develop machine learning algorithms for our robotic systems. We see two major hurdles to adoption in the robotics industry: cost and ease of use. We’re developing low-cost, AI-powered robots built atop cutting-edge machine learning algorithms to further our vision.

The Machine Learning engineer will be responsible for developing supervised and unsupervised learning algorithms and applications atop our robotic systems. The ideal candidate keeps up-to-date with industry and academic trends and is able to train models using off-the-shelf frameworks and create custom architectures to meet customer needs. The role entails developing models using point cloud data from our onboard vision systems as well as using high-frequency sensor data from our embedded systems. We’re hiring for all levels from a recent graduate to an experienced roboticist looking to grow and lead the team. Apply and help us continue to deliver our vision of low-cost, powerful robots driven by ML! 


  • MS or PhD in Machine Learning or a related field
  • Proficient with popular frameworks such as PyTorch, Caffe and Tensorflow
  • Proficient in either C+/+ or Python
  • Experience with OpenCV libraries
  • Emphasis on strong development practices: git, github, CI/CD, unit testing


  • Experience with Robotics
  • Experience with physics simulators such as Gazebo, Bullet, OpenAI Gym

Job specifics

  • The job is based in Izmir, Turkey, but you can expect to join an international, multicultural team, and we offer extensive relocation support.
