PROJECT

PostLab is currently working on a collaborative artificial intelligence (AI) software platform. It aims at making readily available the tools developed by Academic researchers, so they can make it out of the lab into the big wide world more easily. Hence the name of the company PostLab. Our desire is to see years of valuable research that usually end up at best in the hands of a few, or at worst sitting on a lab's digital shelf, flourish in the hands of a larger public and finally get to be understood and used like they were intended to in the first place. To delve further into the heart of the matter, we invite you to look into our website : https://www.postlab.fr/

 

WORK ENVIRONMENT AND INTERNSHIP MISSION

We are a small, early-stage start-up and team, based in the bustling center of the city of Marseille. The city enjoys an insane amount of sunlight and scenic beauty with the sea at its feet, a beautiful spot to explore in all seasons. Our team is a bit like the city, with a blend of multi-cultural, scientific and teaching background with a broad international vision. Currently we are in the process of developing our website and integrating new software.

 

TASKS: you will work closely with the lead developer to:

  • Find, install and test AI software

  • Specify software's features to further develop the graphical interface, based on the tests' results

  • Create docker containers for each selected software

  • Initiate a methodology to automatize the testing process

  • Implement GUI (Graphical User Interface) testing of the integrated software

 

Length period: from 3 months to 12 months.

Applications: ongoing.

Possible start date: October 2020

Full-time: Monday to Friday (35hrs/week)
