Wat ga je doen?

What are you going to do?

As a Machine Learning Operations Engineer you are responsible for the industrialization of (machine learning) algorithms, the optimal performance of the algorithms in production, and the further development of algorithms in production. In addition, you also realize tooling and qualitative standards for maintaining algorithms during their life cycles and train employees to use them. The area of work, Machine Learning Operations, is a new and emerging area of work within Data Science, which means that a lot is still under development in terms of standards and tooling. You will have the opportunity to be part of this innovative journey and to continue to grow in it.

Within various projects you represent the team as a ML Ops expert and you advise on opportunities and risks. You know how to independently implement and communicate the chosen solution. Together with the ML Ops team, you (pro)actively think about improvements that make our customers happy in order to bring our services to a higher level.

The ML Ops team focuses on automating algorithms for all different business units within PostNL and on further professionalizing this service. The algorithms under the responsibility of the ML Ops team contribute to decision-making within critical business processes with consequences for risk reduction and revenue if these do not function. In addition, the ML Ops team takes an active role in sharing and disseminating this expertise to other groups in order to maintain high standards for the quality of algorithms in production.

PostNL is well on its way to applying self-engineering in more and more domains. We do this on the basis of the AWS cloud platform. In addition, we are now taking the first steps to develop a dedicated platform for algorithm industrializations. Together with the ML Ops team you are responsible for the correct and full use of the current and future platform.
