At Qonto, we’re passionate about creating the best product - with both impact and a great user experience. So if you’re looking for an ambitious team that’s revolutionizing a rather old-fashioned industry, get in touch. You can find out more about the Qonto Way here.
Alexandre and Steve launched Qonto in July 2017. Since then, the team has made great strides:- Becoming market leader for online SME banking in Europe with 250,000 SME clients- Getting recognized as one of the Top 10 startups to work for (LinkedIn | Glassdoor)- Opening offices in Paris, Berlin, Milan, and Barcelona- 700+ happy Qontoers building a finance solution businesses love to use.

We face challenges with humility. Every dayIntegrity | We're open. We're honest. And we earn the trust of our clients and each other
To follow Qonto's ambition, we created the Data Department, handling Data Analysis, Engineering, and Science. The data department has since grown from 5 to 35+ people within two years (and we're still hiring)!
Within the Data department, the Data Products Team (10+) is an applied machine learning (ML) team with a focus on delivery, working closely with our data engineering teams that build data pipelines & manage data warehouses.
As a Machine Learning Engineer, you will be collaborating closely with Simon, our Senior Lead Data Product within our subteam in charge of fraud detection and risk scoring models at Qonto.
The Machine Learning systems you’ll release will interact with every transaction within our payment institution: this is one of the most challenging and high-impact machine learning issue in our sector as a FinTech company.
🤝 Your future manager
Your manager will be Simon, who is in charge of the Data Products team at Qonto!
• His background? After his experience in fast-scaling organizations at both ManoMano & Kapten where he managed and built Data Science teams from scratch, Simon joined Qonto to structure our Data Products departments!
• What does he bring to the team? As an expert in his field, he has hands-on experience on implementing and taking Machine Learning models into production in product-driven & cross-functional teams. Simon also has a true passion for mentoring and coaching the team..
👩‍💻🧑‍💻 As a Machine Learning Engineer at Qonto, you will
• Own the Machine Learning lifecycle, from experimentation and prototyping to deployment into production pipelines• Investigate and fix production issues from data products your team owns• Work hand-in-hand with Fraud, Risk & Compliance stakeholders• Ensure high quality by establishing and using the best engineering practices• Design, build, test, document, run, review and maintain production code in Python• Support a critical service used by tens of thousands of users on a daily basis
🤔 What you can expect
• The opportunity to build from scratch challenging machine learning systems that are crucial for Qonto’s future.The Data Products team was funded in mid-March 2022. You’ll be at the forefront of this new effort and contribute to building new machine learning systems for business needs that aren’t yet answered. You won’t be optimizing a fleet of previously developed models: rather, you’ll have the opportunity to write the next chapter from the ground up.
• Qonto is highly data-driven and our different business stakeholders are also thriving in that direction.Our stakeholders have a strong business experience in Fraud, Risk, and Compliance, but also understand what Machine Learning is. For instance, Arnaud (Head of Risk) is a former Data Scientist. You’ll work with stakeholders than can challenge you and speak the same language.
• Qonto has a culture based on efficient feedback loops that allow us to understand & monitor quickly the impact of our actions.The Qonto Way, a set of values inspired by the Lean Methodology, stresses quality. You’ll work on one topic at a time (one piece flow), with a culture that promotes right-first-time and mastery.
• Our data teams are part of our Tech team, granting us easy access to our infrastructures while also supporting strong teamwork.The Data Products team reports to Jérémie (VP Data), who works with Aymeric (CTO). The Data Products team is a Tech team: it’s held to the same software engineering standards as our front or backend engineers, and benefits from the strong support of the SRE team. The team owns its services in production and deploys them on the same infrastructure as the rest of the Tech team (AWS, Argo CD, Kubernetes).
• The team is at the heart of Qonto’s business with a powerful impact on our bottomline.The Data Products team drives business impact at the core of Qonto. As a payment institution, fighting fraud is both a requirement to operate and a prerequisite to thrive. What we do has a direct effect on the company and is an enabler for scaling. You’ll work on difficult problems (few or no labeled data, imbalanced datasets, adversarial setting, concept drift) where the outcome matters.
🏅 About You
• User-focused and outcome-oriented: You want to solve high-impact business problems and deliver value to our users in production• Communication skills: You have effective communication skills, to build alignment and articulate purpose. As a remote-first team, good writing is key• Mastery: You have strong technical experience building real-time ML models for production. You care about the craft and champion high standards• Language: You are fluent in English.
