Comfortable with investigating open-ended problems? Enjoy challenging work with a diverse, highly capable engineering team?
As a data scientist in AutoEntry you will be tasked with improving our data extraction capability, there are many angles from where the problem domain can be approached which will eventually lead to a non-trivial system of many models acting in unison to extract data from every document we receive. Improving our data extraction capability is a fundamental foundation on which we will build and scale data capture globally within Sage.
AutoEntry build innovative cloud products and services and deal with lots of data. This gives our Engineers the opportunity to work on award winning software that will be shipped regularly, is used by a large number of people, requires an implementation that scales, requires best practice security measures and must be reliable. We receive well over a million invoices and receipts each month, with a volume that is rapidly growing. Our in-house developed ML platform combines this high volume of data with human annotation, which provides our data scientists with a lot of annotated data for research and allows us to quickly develop and evaluate a variety of ML models.
We are expecting a fast-paced adoption of new ML approaches in the near future, improving accuracy and embracing new challenges in other related problem domains. Our cloud-based architecture employs microservices to give modularity, which allows us to quickly transfer new predictive models to production in short R&D cycles.
Sage acquired AutoEntry in 2019 - demonstrating our commitment to innovation and adding value to Sage Business Cloud Accounting and Financial Management solutions. AutoEntry is one of the fastest growing automation software businesses in the market. Its intelligent technology eliminates the pain point of data entry for accountants, bookkeepers and businesses, so they can spend time on the things that really matter to their business.
