What we Offer
You will be working with an extraordinary team from academia and industry developing cutting edge technologies in the field of knowledge management, ML, and AI.
You will be getting in on the ground floor of a company with great prospects and have the freedom and autonomy to create products and services as you see fit.
Our main office is based in central Cambridge but we offer flexible working conditions and the ability to work remotely part of the time.
Kvasir is committed to being an equal opportunity employer and creating a diverse, fun, inclusive and rewarding environment. We will consider all qualified candidates regardless of gender, race, colour, or religion. We believe that the best work happens with a team that truly reflects the diversity of society.
