Job description

Entreprise : Family business started in Spain in 2003 with a property website, in 2009 the business moved to the UK and their website became leading portal for international buyers of Spanish Property with revenue of €1.5M. The chosen candidate will work with a small team of 20 software developers and customer support staff working in 5 different countries.

Mission : The company is looking for a computer science intern to help them with a pilot project involving machine learning (IBM Watson) and natural language generation (Arria NLG).

After getting familiar with the company’s systems the intern is expected to work autonomously to specify the pilot projects and make them happen. The intern will work with PostgreSQL and MySQL databases, Ruby on Rails and Lavarel frameworks, PHP programming language, and be curious enough to figure stuff out autonomously rather than being told the answers. Depending on the interns performance a job may be offered. The interns commercial, people and technical skills will be raised.
