We are Saiga

We believe that people spend too much time on mind-numbing tasks and life admin. That's where Saiga steps in. We are building Saiga for a world where everyone can dedicate their time to the things that really matter - be it spending more time with family and friends or simply getting that one extra hour of sleep.

Saiga will radically and fundamentally change how we manage our lives by becoming a personal assistant for the entire administrative and bureaucratic life of people and their households. We use machine learning and UX magic to turn admin into a joyful and positive experience - or at the very least, get it done.

Saiga was founded by Karl Moritz Hermann who was previously CEO of the AI research company Dark Blue Labs (sold to Google) and a senior staff researcher at Google DeepMind. We are backed by some of Europe’s most ambitious VCs and experienced Angel investors, giving us the runway and support to build a category-defining and impactful company.

The Role

Working closely with Karl Moritz, you and the machine learning team will develop and deploy the ML architecture that is core to our business.

From an ML perspective, we cover a broad range of topics from natural language processing, dialogue modelling and document understanding to knowledge-graph induction, few-shot learning and various types of robot process automation.

As the ML Lead you will take responsibility for our models end-to-end, set up data collection schemes, implement and train models, and deploy and monitor systems in close coordination with the rest of the engineering team. You will achieve these goals through your own work as well as through the Machine Learning team that you lead and grow as part of your role.

To succeed you will need to combine theoretical rigour with a practical mindset, demonstrating the pragmatism and speed required to get things done in a fast-growing, early stage startup.


We know that box-ticking is dull and that nobody fits all the boxes. Even if not all of this applies to you, but you feel that you are right for the job, we would love to hear from you!
