Senior Machine Learning Specialist

We are looking for an experienced machine learning specialist with a broad set of skills in computational modeling and statistical analysis, preferably in the context of audio or acoustics or other time-series-dominated domains.

In this position, you will develop advanced algorithms and computational modeling techniques relating to real-time spatial audio rendering, virtual acoustics, and signal processing, with the ultimate goal of advancing state-of-the-art technologies for designing and perceiving sound in digital twins and virtual worlds. You will have the chance to dive deep into a wide range of exciting state-of-the-art topics within scientific machine learning, software development, and acoustics/audio.

Relevant background is important, but we also highly value people who are eager to learn and want to expand their skillset.

You will be responsible for

● Being a core specialist within Treble Technologies in machine learning.
● Researching and developing novel algorithms and computational models to solve complex problems at the intersection between virtual acoustics, spatial audio, audio signal processing, and data science.
● Generating synthetic training data using Treble’s proprietary numerical simulation technology to acquire accurate and reliable datasets for computational model training/validation/testing.
● Leading the development of a machine learning R&D team within Treble.
Developing real-time simulation and signal processing algorithms based on machine learning methods.
● Collaborating with our academic partners, supervising MSc/PhD students, and be involved in scientific publications and conferences.

You will be great for this role if you have

● MSc or PhD in applied mathematics, statistics, acoustics, physics, computer science, engineering, machine learning or related fields.
● Demonstrated experience with development and implementation of machine learning or deep learning algorithms.
● Experience with mathematical modeling, preferably experience in solving time-variant mathematical or physical problems computationally.
● Strong software development skills, e.g., using Python, C++ or Matlab

​​​​​​​If you also have experience with the following, this is a plus

● PyTorch, TensorFlow, or similar platforms.
● Physics informed neural networks and Gaussian processes.
● Leading a small R&D team.
● Acoustics, spatial audio and auditory perception.
● Virtual and augmented reality.
● Knowledge of scrum, agile, git and project management.

Even if you don’t meet every single requirement, we encourage you to apply! Studies have shown that women, non-binary individuals, and people of color are less likely to apply to jobs unless they meet every single qualification. At Treble, we are dedicated to building a diverse, inclusive and authentic workplace, so if you’re excited about this role but your experience doesn’t align perfectly with every qualification in the job description, we encourage you to apply anyway, as we are growing, and a relevant role might come up soon!
