At Picnic, we’re revolutionizing the way people buy groceries with our affordable and sustainable app-only service. We do almost everything in-house, developing cutting-edge technologies and processes to ensure we continue to grow rapidly without missing a beat. If you’re a passionate Machine Learning Engineer, we’re offering you the opportunity to join us at our Amsterdam HQ and make a real difference in our data-driven, scale-up environment. We are currently seeking talented individuals across various levels of expertise.

In a nutshell

As a Medior Machine Learning Engineer at Picnic, you’ll work on creating intelligent, automated systems to solve our company’s biggest challenges, at scale. You won’t stop at building a model—you’ll productionize it. Ensuring robust monitoring is in place, that predictions seamlessly integrate with operational systems, and that stakeholders know you are building the right thing. You’re more than a model builder: you’re a blend of internal consultant, software engineer, and applied mathematician.

At Picnic, a wide variety of machine-learning models is already running in production. In the Inbound team, you could work on improving the Temporal Fusion Transformer model that predicts article demand on a large scale—a direct input for our ordering system. In our Payment team you could work on our real-time payment fraud detection system— to ensure we block fraudulent orders, not happy customers.

You might think, ‘Sounds good, but 80% of my job is going to be cleaning data.’ Not here. Our data is registered, logged, consistent, and immaculate. We’re a mature team with the infrastructure, tools, and expertise to get models into production.

What you’ll do

You could work on various projects and fields, such as:

  • Demand forecasting: delivery, article, trip volumes, used Picnic-wide
  • Fraud detection: helping us keep troublemakers out of our store
  • Recommendation systems: generating useful in-app grocery suggestions
  • Search and ranking: helping our customers find exactly what they need
  • Predicting delivery drop-off times: making sure we’re on-time at every customer’s door.

You will definitely:

  • Work closely with other Machine Learning Engineers and (product) analysts to identify improvement possibilities and execute them.
  • Collaborate on your project from inception to production, to continuous improvement
  • Develop tools and enhancements for our cloud-based data science platform

Technologies we use

  • Python (Scikit-learn, PyTorch, Tensorflow, FastAPI - or we build our own packages)
  • SQL (Snowflake, Postgres)
  • Git
  • Kubernetes

About you

  • Master’s degree or higher in AI, Computer Science, Mathematics, or a related field
  • At least 3 years of experience in data science
  • Some experience with maintaining production-level ML solutions and eager to learn about solid software engineering principles and ML principles
  • Strong Python and SQL skills
  • Good communication skills and ability to transfer knowledge to business stakeholders and the rest of the data science team
  • Comfortable with taking responsibility, showing initiative, and working independently
  • Ability to think outside the box and an anything-is-possible mindset
  • Quality control: commitment to excellence, performance, and efficiency
  • Experience with Docker, Kubernetes, and CI is a plus
