Purpose: Do you want to build innovative software with great social impact? • Eppik helps families protect and share their history and archives through an innovative storytelling platform. • You will develop a scalable consumer facing website harnessing information from Terabytes of data from family photos. • Work with Ai and machine learning technology applied to digital imaging to bring family memories back to life. • Scope to grow team.
Role & Skills: We are looking for an engineer to build, own and optimise architecture and technology. • Current stack includes an image management platform (PHP/Symfony/ Bootstrap/ JQuery/ MySQL) integrating Ai/machine learning algorithms (Python + C++ modules OpenCV and Tensorflow) to perform image analysis and an ecommerce platform to buy photographs and merchandise. • You will need to build on and improve the platform. Provide direction to the current development team but have a very hands-on approach. • Develop web/software architecture from the ground up. Many new features need to be developed (face/ object recognition, new photo books, family trees, chat/ messaging). • Build mobile app (React Native). • Ability to optimise and leverage existing code libraries where appropriate. • Familiarity with or curiosity for ecommerce platform integration (eg shopify, magento, payment systems). • Have a proven ability to establish the development environment from scratch (choose tools, technologies). • Familiarity with cloud computing concepts and platforms. • A good understanding of and curiosity for image manipulation and digital photography. • Activity in open-source projects and community leadership (presentations at meetups, conferences). • Experience or strong interest in computer vision, machine learning, deep learning and big data.
Potential: Eppik has global ambitions and this role can scale! We will be as flexible as you are committed. • We are launching in the UK, France and Belgium but we have had interest from clients all over Europe, Australia, Canada and the US; so basically the model can scale! • As one of our first employees working closely with the founder, you need to feel comfortable in a start-up environment and be very hands on but there is clearly the potential for a leadership/ CTO role/ Co-founder. • Competitive salary and benefits which will grow with the company, including equity. • Flexible working hours from the outset. Working location can be discussed.
I really look forward to hearing from you.

Eppik brings your old photos and your digital photo library onto one plaform. Eppik is your family storytelling platform. Eppik digitises your old family photo albums so you can share them online with friends and family. Old photos have valuable storytelling potential. Eppik unlocks that potential by bringing them online and powering them with deep learning tools. Most people in the world have a record of their life or their parents' lives before the digital age. Whether that's the 1990s or the 1960s and sometimes even before! But most of these memories are hidden away in cupboards and attics. We put those memories online and mine that data to create powerful data visualisations of your stories.
