Products, R&D and Production business function is responsible for ensuring that Basware continues to provide its customers with industry leading SaaS solutions to simplify operations and spend smarter. This global function creates and executes the product strategy, new product innovations, roadmap, design, product development and product launches for Basware’s global product portfolio. Together with other Basware units, Products, R&D and Production ensure that our customers can successfully meet their business objectives through cooperating with Basware and using our product and service portfolio.

We are a team creating the largest AI product in the Basware portfolio - SmartPDF AI. The product is in the early production phase, but it has already reached state-of-the-art benchmarks for invoice recognition accuracy. The high accuracy is achieved by the sophisticated stack of technological layers including clustering and anomaly detection algorithms, segmentation models, committee machine, and heuristics. Still, we are not satisfied with our results, and we are looking for ways to boost the accuracy even further with semi-supervised learning and the latest attention-based models.

To achieve our goals, the team is looking for a new member who is extremely passionate about ML challenges.

With us you will enjoy:

  • Great level of autonomy and startup spirit.
  • Possibility to work with the latest ML technologies.
  • Chance to move the technology further, publish scientific papers, and register patents.
  • Work side-by-side with the most experienced and influential ML experts in Finland, professor level.
  • Technical challenges that will exploit every single neuron of your brain to get solved.
  • Healthy codebase, zero-bureaucracy and low-pressure agile development process.
  • Friendly teammates and warm, positive team climate.
