Job Description

Fixed - £37,000 to £40,000 (pro rata) dependent on experience.

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP) are one of the UK's largest graduate recruitment schemes (ktp.innovateuk.org). This position offers a talented Machine Learning Engineer the opportunity to join a fast growing and creative organisation in the digital humanities sector with a highly driven management team who are intent on significantly expanding the business.
The University and the company are seeking to recruit a high calibre graduate to lead on the design and deployment of machine learning tools applied to machine translation. The company, Guildhawk Ltd., is one of the leading translation companies in the UK and won the Queen's Award for Excellence in 2019. Although already utilising some machine translation capability, current systems are unsuitable for all applications and often require significant human input from Guildhawk’s team of expert translators.
The post is remote, with regular meetings at the company’s flexible office space in Sheffield, and the successful candidate will work directly with company staff in the software development team. Support in machine learning, software engineering, and quality management processes will be provided by experts at Sheffield Hallam University. Some travel to and from the University will be expected.
Ideally, you will have a Master’s degree in Software Engineering / Computing or equivalent, with an interest in digital humanities. A good first degree with appropriate experience may be acceptable.

The appointment carries a range of further benefits including:

  • Excellent mentored experience in managing a high-profile project
  • A generous personal development budget in addition to formal off-site KTP management training.
  • Automatic inclusion in our defined benefit pension scheme.

 * Although the appointment is initially for 24 months it is possible that a permanent position will be available within the company upon successful completion of the project.

Sheffield Hallam welcomes applications from all candidates irrespective of age, pregnancy and maternity, disability, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, religion or belief, or marital or civil partnership status.
