Who we are

Helsing is a new type of defence and artificial intelligence company. We believe that software - and especially artificial intelligence - will shape our democracies’ future. Our purpose is to attain technology leadership so that democratic societies are free to make sovereign decisions and control their ethical standards.

Our mission is to attract Europe’s best purpose-driven tech talent and apply their capabilities to some of the most complex problems.

We are looking for people with their heart in the right place, who share our conviction that our democratic values are worth protecting, for ourselves and for future generations.

Meet the team 

At Helsing, we want to deliver future AI capabilities to make a difference. The AI Research team is developing algorithms that diverse sensors like VIS, multi-spectral, RF + fusion layer that enables optimal basis for the best and responsible decision making. 

You will be part of a team that conceptualises, develops, tests, and integrates novel AI algorithms based on state-of-the-art research for our distributed perception platform and edge capabilities. 
The Impact you will make  

We are looking for experienced researchers with a passion for RF signal analysis, advanced software development, knowledge about machine learning and deep learning, embedded, and aerospace systems to lead and support our AI team. 

As a Senior Signal Intelligence Researcher, you will be responsible for the planning, shaping, design, development, testing, and guiding team creating AI-driven real-time, edge-deployed RF Sensing capabilities for COMS and ELINT signals as well as other advanced electronic warfare solutions
