Job Description

Full job description

Medical Device Start-up

We have an exciting new role within our company as a machine learning engineer. As part of this role you will collect the data, interpret and write algorithms based on your findings. The role is a vital part of a medical device product development that will shape the future of how healthcare is delivered.

Who are we?

Silver Lion Innovations is a startup medical device company which exists to transform the lives of people facing immobility across multiple health conditions and the people involved in their care. We’ve seen this first-hand as our first product is inspired by a close family member of the founder who has Parkinson’s. Healthcare systems globally need innovative technologies created by people using them so that they can continue the care for the growing number of those requiring it.

At Silver Lion Innovations, we have reimagined a key care service with a game changing new technology and we need excellent, stand out people on board to deliver the first in a range of products.

Position Overview

You will be responsible for gathering data from our hardware, interpreting and finding patterns in the data, then creating algorithms to make our product intelligent. Your contribution to our product and development roadmap will be significant and the finished product will have your stamp on it. Most importantly, it will change the lives of people who suffer with lifelong health conditions. Chances are, you know someone who would benefit from the product.

If there is a part of this job description not currently within your capabilities but you are still interested, please get in touch. We are a startup and therefore need a wide variety of skills and currently have other roles that you may be able to help with.

What we’re looking for from you:

  • Degree/PhD level qualification in related area or a degree with mathematical content and programming skills
  • Relevant experience (ideally postdoctoral or industrial) in robotics, data fusion, tracking/estimation, pattern discovery & recognition, statistical inference, optimisation and machine/deep learning algorithms along with real-time implementation, and/or validation & verification is a strong advantage
  • Experience in Python including PyTorch (higher level languages/tools like Matlab, Simulink, Stateflow, LabView are also OK but should include the ability to easily translate to programming languages like Python, .NET, C++ etc)
  • High level of discipline in data storing and analytics
  • Positive attitude towards overcoming challenges and finding innovative solutions.
  • Excellent communication and teamwork skills.
  • Be able to self-motivate and be comfortable with being given autonomy to make decisions.

Specific knowledge or experience that are nice to haves: please let us know which applies to you

  • Robotics, guidance and autonomous decision making, e.g. co-ordinated guidance and control, decision theory, decision support systems
  • Machine Learning for pattern recognition/discovery problems e.g. Gaussian processes, probabilistic/statistical models, novelty detection
  • Deep Learning e.g. Deep reinforcement learning, Monte-Carlo tree search, deep regression/classification
  • AWS or similar cloud platform knowledge
  • UI/UX design & development
  • Software/programing skills
  • Knowledge of cybersecurity principles and best practices.
  • Website Development


  • Salary and benefits package based on experience and skill set
  • Opportunity to work on impactful projects that make a difference to people’s lives
  • Freedom and autonomy to deliver your work in a way that works for you with a healthy work life balance
  • Be part of product development at a key time
  • Relaxed and collaborative working environment
  • Flexible working arrangements, including hybrid office-based work in Edinburgh

As mentioned before, even if you don’t fill all the requirements on the listing, don’t let that put you off applying. Just let us know in your application on the parts that you do and don’t feel you fulfil.

How & Why to Apply

The work you do will be impactful, game-changing and will genuinely go some distance to solving a very present problem in the healthcare systems of the world that is currently getting worse.

Please submit via email below your CV and a cover letter explaining why this position could be a great fit for you. Ensure that your application highlights any relevant prior experience or skills that you have that may be of benefit.

All applications will be reviewed on merit and all will be considered and given the same opportunity for the role.
