About us

DeepSea was founded to bring the latest AI technology to make the world of shipping leaner, greener, and better connected. Our cloud platforms harness deep learning models trained on real-time data to enable our customers to optimise the routes, speeds, operation, and maintenance of their vessels, saving fuel, money, time and reducing environmental impact. DeepSea talent is spread across Greece, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Romania, Thailand and Japan and we are growing quickly.


We are a scale-up company - meaning you will be bringing us to the next level and deliver a tangible contribution to a more sustainable shipping world. There is no complex hierarchy nor long approval processes. We just deliver. You will be joining a company with highly skilled and smart people who love solving complex problems.


About the position

We are looking for an experienced software engineer/architect to take technical ownership of critical parts of our cloud products to scalably deliver value to our customers. You will analyse user, product and business requirements, in collaboration with our Product Department, understand the deficiencies of our existing implementation and the output of our AI research, identify the best technologies to use and produce technical designs to be implemented by our development teams. We take a hands-on approach, therefore any design effort should include prototyping, especially when new technologies are involved.


Our products are used by shipping company engineers and captains to optimise the technical operations and navigation of their vessels based on our in-house developed AI and optimisation algorithms. You will need to gain a good understanding of the domain and our research output to design improvements that make our back-end infrastructure scalable and cover our customers’ needs.


Our cloud platform is hosted on AWS, and we are in the process of transitioning our infrastructure to container orchestration using EKS. Our back-end services are implemented in Java, using the Spring boot framework, with front-end in React, AI services in Python using TensorFlow, and optimisation using Rust.


  • Experience of technical ownership of scalable enterprise software, preferably cloud software with interaction between diverse microservices. This will include multi-year experience as a senior developer and/or software architect.
  • Ability to analyse requirements and research output in a highly technical domain and produce high-quality scalable designs. Broader STEM background or experience would be helpful.
  • Experience of software architecture, system definition, algorithm design and design patterns
  • Experience in startup and/or B2B SaaS environments
