MX Labs - Machine Intelligence Engineer
Full-time / Internship
What we do
Merantix transforms how businesses, healthcare organizations, and governments operate by building products that apply machine intelligence to their enterprise datasets. We acquire datasets that enable promising products, incubate those products, and spin off ventures to support their growth. We take advantage of three core competencies: Our experience applying machine learning, our expertise fostering enterprise partnerships to assemble vast datasets, and our culture of rapidly iterating to build scalable products.
Our projects are meaningful and diverse. Currently we work on:
As our current ventures progressively grow mature and become more independent, we will look into new industries such as satellite imagery, pharmaceutical drugs, industrial IoT and automated manufacturing.
Our team is made up of entrepreneurs, scientists, and engineers from premier universities around the world. Many of us have PhDs and work experience at top tech companies. We’re based in Europe’s startup capital, Berlin, and are growing quickly!
Are you passionate about developing impactful applications of machine learning? Does the prospect of dealing with complex problems in different fields excite you? Do you want to play an instrumental role in building deep learning solutions?

Working at Merantix
Our hierarchy is flat and communication direct, which means that we operate and learn fast, as a team. You are a great fit for our team if the following describes you:
Entrepreneurial mindset: Creative, focused, and not easily discouraged
An ability to work in a fast-paced environment where continuous innovation is happening and ambiguity is the norm
Outstanding technical and analytical problem-solving skills
Structured, solution-oriented, and independent way of working
Desire to comprehensively understand problems in their broader context
Strong organizational skills with the ability to balance competing priorities
Love what you do and own it
In addition to a competitive salary and equity package you can expect the following:
Some of us come in during regular business hours, and some of us prefer to start later or earlier. Occasionally, we work from home in the mornings or evenings rather than in the office. We don’t track vacation time and expect you to take time off as you need it. And while the infrequent unavoidable deadline may demand extraordinary effort, we value our evenings and weekends and overtime is the exception, not the rule. Just ask one of our founders, a father of two.
We want each employee to attend at least one professional conference each year. Last year our entire machine learning engineering team attended NeurIPS and ICCV. We make major contributions to the open source community. We have a weekly paper reading group to stay up to date on current research.
We have regular outings and team dinners. If you want to participate, that’s great! And if you don’t, that’s fine too.
We are an equal-opportunity employer and value diversity. We consider all applications equally regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, or gender identity. We strongly encourage individuals from groups traditionally underrepresented in tech to apply, and we can help with immigration.
