Job description

At Deepomatic, we believe artificial intelligence is the way to unlock the world of tomorrow. Our mission is to make it accessible to all, not just a few big technology companies. To fulfill this dream we are always looking for talented, curious and creative engineers to help us along this journey.


If you're passionate about the upcoming societal and economical impacts of AI, if you want to work and learn with the latest technologies, then there is a place for you!This is a paid position for a 6 months internship. We know that there's always more to someone than meets the eye so we appreciate atypical profiles: education, background, previous experiences, nationalities, etc., don't hold back!


Team organization


Deepomatic is a startup of 35 employees, and half of the team is composed of tech people.

We work in feature squads. A squad lasts typically a quarter or a semester and is made up of different roles (QA, Product, UX / UI, front-end and back-end developers). A squad is responsible from the conception of features to their releases. In other words, it starts at a very high level (ex: distributed system architecture design) and goes until the low level implementation (ex: REST API, asynchronous task management with celery) and the production.


The intern will be fully integrated into one of our squad dedicated to the development and evolution of our computer vision SaaS platform. She or he will be supervised and trained by a senior back-end engineer of the squad.
