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:

  • Automated medical image diagnosis
  • Financial models for automated trading on new markets
  • Deep neural networks used for autonomous driving

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!

Job

You want to work on something with a purpose and make healthcare more safe and efficient?

Merantix is looking for a Quality Assurance Engineer. You will be working on our product team, testing a platform to securely view and report on X-Rays, MRIs, and CT-scans. Our product is written in Clojure and Python, and this unique role will involve automated testing (mostly in Clojure; you can learn it on the job!), as well as exploratory/manual testing where appropriate.

What we provide

  • Work in healthcare: You get to work in an innovative, well-funded startup becoming part of the healthcare industry.
  • Startup: Don't lose time due to politics, build things and have an impact instead
  • Stay ahead of industry trends: You'll have the chance to build on your existing QA skills while learning a functional language.
  • Great team, opportunity for growth, mentoring: Our engineers are active members of the Berlin Clojure community

Qualifications

We define ourselves by a culture of friendship and ownership. We're looking for capable, driven, and thoughtful people who think outside the box and add to our vision.

Basic qualifications:

  • You're self motivated and want to take ownership of product quality
  • You have a solid understanding of quality assurance practices and test strategies
  • You're interested in Clojure and functional programming and willing to learn it (if you already have experience in this area, that's great too!)

Preferred qualifications:

  • Understanding of web application fundamentals (JavaScript/HTML/CSS, REST APIs, relational databases, single page applications, etc.)
  • Experience building automated test suites
  • Experience with sound engineering practices: Git, code review, testing, continuous delivery and automation

The preferred qualifications are just that: preferred. If a few of these points apply to you, we definitely want to talk!

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 this describes you:

  • Entrepreneurial mindset: Creative, focused, and not easily discouraged
  • An ability to work in a fast-paced environment where continuous innovation is occurring and ambiguity is the norm.
  • Excellent technical and analytical problem-solving skills
  • Structured work style to develop effective solutions with minimal oversight
  • Analyze and solve problems at their root, stepping back to understand the broader context
  • Strong organizational and multitasking skills with ability to balance competing priorities
  • Excellent communication (verbal and written) and interpersonal skills and an ability to effectively communicate with both business and technical teams.
  • Love what you do (and own it)

In addition to a competitive salary and equity package, you can expect the following:

Work-life balance:

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.

Professional Development:

We aim for attending at least one professional conference each year. Our entire machine learning team attended NIPS and ICCV while our product team attended ClojuTRE, clojure/conj and clojureD. We make major contributions to the open source community. We have weekly engineering meetings both for machine learning and Clojure development which includes presenting papers, talking through interesting pieces of code or just mentioning some cool libraries.

Collaborative Culture:

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.
