Employee story: A sneak peek into the world of work for Jan

“Hi, I’m Jan and I work at DERMALOG on models / software for recognising biometric features of people, in the field of facial biometrics. I started working at DERMALOG because I was fascinated by machine learning.

The best thing about my working day is that I get to live out my hobby (programming) in my job, really get to grips with the challenges I’m faced with, and learn new things along the way.
My tech stack is Tensorflow, Pytorch, OpenCV, Jenkins and Linux. I usually program using Python and C++.”


Jan

DERMALOG is a comparatively small company where one person can make a big difference, and that really motivates me. The hierarchies are quite flat and there is ample opportunity to develop and grow as an individual.
