With customers across the world including New Balance, Bauer, Ecco and XXL, we are on a mission to help 500 million shoe shoppers find perfect fitting footwear by 2025 both in-store and online. 

Machine learning is core to Volumental's products and services, both in the cloud and on our edge devices. In order to build amazing products we constantly have to solve challenging and exciting problems, from processing images and 3D meshes to analyzing the users’ feet, to considering the fit aspect of purchases to estimate customer preferences. This allows us to help shoe shoppers find perfect fitting footwear and ensure each and every shopping experience is engaging, simple and based on expertise drawn from millions of scans and purchases. And that’s where you come in!

What will you work on?

Delivering our machine-learning based products at scale requires a robust and well implemented system for handling lots of heterogeneous data. The algorithms are in many ways secondary to well modelled and organized data and in order to get it clean and get it in high volumes the data needs to be interfaced with and abstracted at the right level. The scale of data processing also offers exciting challenges as we already now are handling millions of 3D foot scans and purchases in volumes of tens of terabytes and quickly growing.

As a Data Engineer at Volumental, you will be part of our machine learning team and be at the middle of all this data. You will have a key role in designing and implementing the full path data takes, from customers and other sources to the training and deployment of machine learning models and back to the customers through our products. You will implement data cleaning and normalization to connect to seemingly different data points, design and implement data models and API endpoints, and collaborate with stakeholders across disciplines to crystallize how data should be structured and optimized.
