- Scientific background in big data analysis, machine learning, or numerics
- Experience with Rich Internet Applications / AJAX
- Experience with stress testing
- Enthusiasm for design, usability, and accessibility

- You’ll be provided with an up-to-date laptop (typically a MacBook Pro), external display, smartphone, a height-adjustable desk – and whatever you need for productive work. – but if you prefer working from home office, this will be fine as well after a training period.
- We don’t provide a car parking, but instead you’ll get a ticket for the public transport – and we do provide a safe and dry place for your bike.
