At the same time, we encourage participation in the academic community. Our researchers collaborate closely with universities and regularly publish in venues such as SIGIR, ECIR, RecSys, KDD, NeurIPS, ICML, ACL, and EMNLP.

- Good publication record in top-tier IR, Recommender Systems or Machine Learning conferences.
- Strong development skills, preferably in Python and knowledge of deep learning frameworks
