Materials Informatics Engineer

Technology | Materials Engineering | Stockholm, Sweden

Who we are

We are ferritico, a Swedish software company disrupting the global steel industry. Based on more than 10 years of leading KTH research we are developing a machine learning tool provided to our customers as a SaaS. The ferritico service digitalizes the processes of developing, manufacturing and implementing steel, helping our customers to significantly cut time and costs.

We aggregate large sets of steel properties and process data and apply physical-based and machine learning models enabling our customers to predict and view correlations in data when optimizing materials, products and processes. Ferritico is well funded through support from i.a. EIT and Vinnova although already generating revenues. Ferritico is used in production by one global steel company and is currently strengthening the team with a Materials Informatics Engineer as a consequence of increased development and service demand.

The Opportunity

This employment constitutes a unique opportunity to join the ferritico team in central Stockholm and to step up your game as an engineer within materials science where informatics, i.e. data and computational modelling is key. As a Materials Informatics Engineer you will be outlining our customer’s steel processes and identifying materials data correlations enabling process and product optimization. You will document and work creatively to develop data requirements and strategies which will be implemented by our database developers and leveraged by our machine learning software. Your work will foster the highly profitable shift towards data-driven work patterns within steel development and manufacturing and include:

  • Conducting strategic pre-studies where customer processes are explored focusing on materials data correlations and optimization possibilities

  • Create strategies and support database developers in the materials data collection process and implement quality assurance metrics

  • Test machine learning software prediction output and benchmark results against other simulation tools 

  • Support Data Scientists in prediction model optimization and prediction error tracking

  • Attend sales meetings, identify new customer opportunities and deliver business development for our steel industry customers on a consultant basis
