Do you have experience with writing backend services, managing datastores, and big data, orchestrating them into reliable and performant systems in the cloud context? Do you want to work with cutting-edge technology within fields such as machine vision, AI, optics, and mechatronics?

Welcome to BioSort!

We have the ambition to become the world leader in sensor-based solutions for optimization of fish resources. We already have a team dedicated to solving some of the most important challenges in aquaculture, challenges that are highly complex, technologically challenging, yet incredibly exciting.

BioSort’s success depends entirely on the knowledge and capabilities of our employees, and we are always on the lookout for the brightest heads within Tech. We currently have engineers and consultants developing the infrastructure and backend, embedded systems for real time edge computing, optical design, processing of big data, all to support our computer vision systems. We are now expanding our team within the backend, DevOps, and MLOps domains.


The role of Backend Engineer at BioSort

You will work in a team to:

  • Develop systems for storing, and serving, hundreds of terabytes of data to, and from, our cloud systems.
  • Automate deployment of software, services, and machine learning models according to CI/CD principles.
  • Work with ML developers to solve complex problems and create unique solutions.
  • Contribute to the continuous evaluation and refactorization of our solutions.
  • Suggest (and implement) new and novel ideas to solve problems.

Technologies we use, amongst others:

  • Docker, Kubernetes, Terraform, SaltStack, gitlab
  • Kafka, RabbitMQ, S3, PostgreSQL
  • Kotlin, Rust, Python, C/C++, node.js
  • MLFlow, PyTorch, Tensorflow, CUDA


The candidate we are looking for

We would like to think you have a master’s degree in computer science, or equivalent. Alternatively, a combination of advanced technical education and work experience. Ideally, you have 3+ years of experience in the operationalization of backend solutions.

It would be a plus if you had prior experience with handling big data, especially in the context of RESTful services in a Kubernetes context. Knowledge of machine learning would also be a plus, as a lot of our backend solutions are geared towards creating, serving, and processing data for our computer vision efforts.


Working at BioSort

We have created an environment where your opinion matters, and although we classify ourselves as a start-up, we have “large company stability”. Our team gets to work with products and solutions with a purpose / green technology (sustainable salmon-farming products).

Other things we would like to highlight:

  • Excellent salary and benefits
  • Green technology – a purpose behind the products
  • Stock options
  • Work with colleagues with a real know-how – all the steps it takes to reach goals
  • Nice open office, by the water
  • Electronics lab and a 20.000-liter pool for local tests with fish in sea water
  • Coffee from Solberg & Hansen in the office
  • Several very good Cantinas, Gym, Coffee shop, and KIWI in the building
  • Very healthy, open, and friendly atmosphere in the office
