Senior C++ Developer

Hi everyone!

We are looking for Senior C++ Developer for OPT/NET (remote).

What do we do?

https://opt-net.eu

We build AI-driven platforms that help our clients extract time-critical insights from massive volumes of data. OPT/NET developed Artificial Intelligence-driven anomaly detection platforms intended to bridge the gap between humans, big data, and technology in several mission-critical domains.

Why do we do it?

The data volumes grow exponentially and much faster than humans can process. With only less than 5% of collected data ever being processed there was no solution on the market before our company came on stage. Our mission is to positively impact the lives of more than 1 billion people on Earth in the next 5 years, and we have a story to prove it.

How do we do it?

Our patented process allows our platform to autonomously detect, fuze, cluster, and analyse complex patterns from any time-series data stream in real-time. We combine real space-worthy technology from European Space Agency with very advanced concepts in AI. Advanced mathematics, linear algebra and analytical geometry, quantum physics and wave mechanics all come to use in our products and our team of engineers is a very experienced group of individuals with a stellar track record and past achievements. Our technological partnerships with the European Space Agency and the University of Amsterdam create very fertile soil for improving our technology and building new knowledge.

What distinguishes our company/project from others? Why are we worth joining?

The company's platform successfully makes human operators more successful through the application of patented technology and homegrown proprietary AI methodology. We have live deployments in critical environments which autonomously analyse the streaming data and automatically group it into manageable actionable insights by providing a full visual and textual narrative for each anomaly, enabling our clients to react faster, smarter, and more effectively to every sign of trouble without missing a thing and avoiding costly errors and disastrous consequences.

The optimistic and pessimistic estimations of team/company growth for the nearest several years.

In the course of the COVID pandemy, the team of 10  has made tremendous commercial and technological progress and just exited the “stealth mode” and with secured funding is expected to grow exponentially in the next 3 years. With many customers lined up and projects scheduled for delivery in several key Big Data analytics markets OPT/NET has the ambition to become the next unicorn.

Always wondered that you missed out when the next unicorn was being made in a garage somewhere in Silicon Valley? This is the time… and the place is Dutch “Monterey”. Come and see for yourself and make your own future with your own hands by joining the team of like-minded professionals!
