About Cere Network

Since its launch in 2019, the Cere team has consistently anticipated the difficulties that the present systems would encounter, now highlighted by the swift advancements of AI and the accompanying surge in data. With companies using multiple vendors causing data fragmentation that complicates AI integration, Cere is presenting itself as an objective, open-source solution, with a clear vision: All data should be decentralized. Unequivocally.

Cere is backed by the world’s largest institutions and projects, including Binance Labs, Republic Labs, and Polygon. For more info, see:

A bit more about our Multinational, High-Performance (and primarily remote) Team

Join a highly talented multicultural team based all over the world, including Berlin, Amsterdam, San Francisco and Warsaw. As stated above, we make remote working possible by embracing our ethos, yet many teams also travel to meet in person every 1-2 months. We all want high degrees of autonomy and flexibility to make life and work fun, but transparency, accountability/ownership are the requisites.

- Advanced data science and mathematical skills (e.g. PhD in computational modelling, machine learning, statistics, computer science)

- Minimum of 3-5 hands-on years of experience in software development and/or research, with a focus on AI, ML, or NLP, preferably in a tech/SaaS environment. 

- A foundational understanding of AI models and their applications/use cases.

- Knowledge of how full-stack SaaS products work, scale and perform.

- Expertise with cutting-edge technologies such as transfer learning, unsupervised feature generation, meta-learning, generative text models, computer vision, sensor fusion, or reinforcement learning.

- Proficient in deep programming to implement solutions in production.

- Experience defining and leading large-scale projects with multiple stakeholders.

- Excellent analytical skills with the ability to track and interpret information.

- Exceptional communication and collaboration skills, with the ability to work effectively across cross-functional teams.

- Must be based in or willing to relocate to the San Francisco Bay Area/ or Poland Warsaw

Nice to have:

- Strong understanding of the web3 industry and web technologies.

Beyond the ownership of identity and digital assets, data is the next key element that needs to become self-custodied by every consumer and be made available to applications on demand. This data element is the biggest missing piece for web3 and dApps. 

The true decentralization of web3 has served as the singular core purpose and mission behind Cere’s data protocol, the DDC (Decentralized Data Cloud), along with its blockchain mainnet powered by the $CERE token, which is designed to provide security and utility to the Cere DDC.
