    • Strong understanding of data manipulation, analysis, and querying
    • Comfortable with managing technical uncertainty
    • Proven ability to take ownership and drive projects to completion
    • Excellent problem-solving skills and attention to detail
    • Effective communication and collaboration skills

    • Experience in developing and implementing generative AI systems.
    • Familiarity with cloud platforms (e.g., AWS, Azure, GCP) and machine learning operations practices.
    • Experience with developing and deploying machine learning models at scale.

    Hoxhunt is a great place to work:

    • The salary range is €6,000 - €6,500/month, flexible depending on your experience
