About the role

Do you want to join a fast-paced startup and work on the bleeding edge of recommendation systems, where your work immediately impacts the user experience for millions of users? We are looking for a Solution Engineer who thrives in a fast-moving environment.

Depict is on a mission to challenge Amazon's domination of e-commerce. We connect customers and retailers over a shared love for great products, by making e-commerce product discovery a breeze from start to finish. We want retailers with the best products, not the largest budgets, to win. We use computer vision and natural language processing to truly understand the product and provide state of the art product recommendations.

We serve hundreds of millions of requests every month on some of the largest e-commerce sites in Europe and are backed by some of the world's most renowned investors, including Y Combinator, Initialized and EQT Ventures.

How will I make an impact?

  • Developing the recommendation experience for our customers, all the while improving our underlying tech
  • Help millions of consumers every month to find the products they want
  • Working with the next generation of machine learning solutions

What skills do I need?

  • Fluent in Python (or want to be) and care about writing high-quality code
  • Passionate about seeing your work deployed to millions of users
  • Excited about taking on and solving open ended problems that help our customers

You'll love Depict! You will join a humble team with the drive to build something great. From reading the latest ML conference papers to building optimized Javascript applications, we are laser-focused on doing everything we can to move Depict forward. With backgrounds ranging from Google, Uber and CERN to self-taught programmers, we are united by our passion for building a great product.

We think big but start small when solving problems, delivering value first and iterating rapidly until we have something great.

Everyone at Depict gives and appreciates honest, constructive feedback and we have a radically candid culture that helps us all grow and improve rapidly.


  • Competitive salary and meaningful equity
  • Opportunity to grow into a leadership role rapidly
  • Work from our office in Stockholm or remotely from any timezone within 2 hours of Central European Time (we will cover the costs of a co-working space in your city)
  • Quarterly company-wide offsites
  • Flexible vacation policy + Paid Parental Leave Program

We look forward to hearing from you, and best of luck!

Why you should join Depict

Amazon-quality product recommendations for any e-commerce store.

Amazon has the best product recommendations. They use their historic sales data to create these recommendations. The problem though is that other e-commerce stores lack enough sales training data to do the same.

We've solved this problem. The algorithm increases overall e-commerce revenue by 4-6% for any store without needing any sales data at all.
