Who we are
Volumental is a young and supportive company with a friendly, talented and diverse team of 42 people, currently comprising 19 nationalities. We have a collaborative atmosphere and believe in developing our employees and growing our business while having fun at work.
At Volumental, we’re passionate about creating a great shopping experience and helping people find the best products for them (both fit and style) - starting with shoes. To do that we 3D scan people’s feet and use AI to find or create shoes that fit you perfectly. This data also helps our customers, mainly world leading brands, to develop better products. We do this by utilizing our beautifully designed high tech software and hardware, at present unparalleled in the global retail industry.
We’re also in a strong growth phase. Since we started rolling out in 2016, our scanners are now in stores in 35 countries and help thousands of people every day find shoes that fit. So we’re a crucial part of making retail more efficient, personalized and sustainable.
What’s your part in this?
Founded as a spin-off from a robotics and machine learning lab at KTH, Volumental is at it's core a technology company with deep roots in the machine learning community. We believe that AI and data will transform all parts of society in the coming decades. That includes not only our own products and our customers and partners, but every aspect of the business.
As a Machine Learning Engineer at Volumental, you will join the team of developers that makes this a reality. This can involve anything from compressing CNNs to run in real-time on a mobile device, to implementing analytics mining terabytes of data in the cloud. You will work both on developing and implementing algorithms as well as the practical engineering side of making those run smoothly in production.
These statements describe you well:
You’ll have lots of opportunities to learn on the job, so don’t worry if you only fulfil a third of this wish list so far!

At Volumental we care about personal and professional growth, about building a great company culture as well as great products. We often hold internal talks/workshops and provide opportunities for taking courses and improving skills.
We also believe in learning fast and moving fast ‐‐ as an example, we went from being a pure software company to mass-producing the leading hardware (and software) on the market in a single year.
We encourage Voumentalists to contribute to our ecosystem. Our employees are very active in organizing and speaking at events including Tjejer Kodar, Pink Programming, Django meetup, Sustainability and Future of Fashion events, working on open source projects and open-sourcing our code where possible.
As a well‐funded and fast‐growing startup with a flat organizational structure, we are open to new ideas. Volumental offers you a workplace where you as an individual can make a lasting impression, and where your contributions make a difference to the company culture and to the future of fashion and retail: how we design, manufacture and buy products in a world where customized is the norm rather than a luxury.
We have regular options programs, with the aim that everyone who works here long term should own a stake and take part in the long-term success of Volumental.
We know it can be hard to move. It’s a plus if you are already eligible to work in Sweden, but for exceptional candidates we do help with the visa process (it took one month last time). If you need to move to Stockholm, we will do our best to help you with housing and settling in!
