About the role

Research & develop machine learning solutions to power NuMind.

Location: France (Paris or remote). We might consider out-of-France candidates in the future.

NuMind is a tool to create NLP models (such as classifiers and entity detectors). The user provides information about the task (e.g. by labeling documents), and the computer creates models automatically.

Your job will be to make this happen in the most effective way. This will involve reading papers, designing & testing various machine learning solutions, and implementing these solutions directly into NuMind. R&D topics include:

  • Transfer learning, Few-shot learning
  • Use of large language models
  • Active learning
  • Automatic machine learning
  • Distillation

This position is for someone who has both a researcher and engineer mindset.

You will directly work with our CEO, who was head of Machine Learning at Wolfram Research.

Senior candidate preferred. Strong Junior possible.


  • Setting up benchmarks to test ML solutions
  • Identifying & testing existing ML solutions
  • Designing & testing new ML solutions from scratch
  • Implementing selected solutions into the product
  • Staying up to date with relevant NLP research


  • Expert-level understanding of machine learning
  • Ability to design, train, test machine learning models (incl. deep learning models)
  • Ability to conduct machine learning research (e.g. conducting experiments, drawing conclusions, communicating results)
  • Ability to develop production-grade code
  • Good understanding of the following field:
    • Statistics
    • Computer science (esp. data structures & algorithms)
    • Numerical analysis

Why you should join NuMind

We develop machine learning tools. Our mission is to spread the use of machine learning - and artificial intelligence in general - by creating highly accessible yet powerful tools. We focus on Natural Language Processing (NLP), which is undergoing a revolution thanks to large language models.

We are a team of 5 (CEO, CTO, COO, 2 senior software eng.). Our CEO is an ex-physicist who was head of ML at Wolfram Research. Our CTO co-founded and was CTO at We are located in France (Paris) and in the USA (Cambridge, MA).

We just finished YCombinator’s S22 batch, and raised a good seed round.

Team Size:3
