Gfi Group is seeking for talented, ambitious and experienced researchers at the post-doctoral level interested in becoming applicants for the next MSCA-IF-2020 call evaluating under the Society and Enterprise panel.

The Gfi Group is a multinational consulting, outsourcing and systems integration in Information Technology, with a team of more than 20,000 employees, present in 22 countries. After 50 years of history, the company has consolidated becoming a benchmark in the European market within its sectors of activity: Banking and Insurance, Telco and Media, Energy and Utilities, Public Administration and Government, Industry and eHealth. The generation of a turnover of 1,595 million euros in 2019, support its position in the market. The Gfi Group has been present in Spain since 1998 with a staff of more than 2,500 highly qualified professionals in 15 offices spread throughout the national territory. Gfi Group has been involved in more than 13 European co-funded projects, being the coordinator of several research and innovation actions from FP6 to H2020, and investing in many other R+D+i initiatives.

At Gfi Group, we claim the role of technology in digital transformation. Based on our experience and our expertise, we consider that it is essential to know the field of possibilities in terms of technologies, to imagine the uses that will make the success of the digital applications of tomorrow. Gfi Group counts on with a network of distributed FabLabs in Europe promoting co-innovation and supporting open-source philosophy.

Among the different research lines launched by the Innovation team, we can find AIOps. AIOps is the application of artificial intelligence for IT operations. By means of the combination of algorithmic and human intelligence, it is possible to provide full visibility into the state and performance of the IT systems that modern businesses rely on.

For the MSCA-IF-EF-SE 2020 call, our Innovation team is looking for a postdoc with experience in advanced analytics (ML/DL) to join the innovation team in charge of developing a new platform that will abstracts away the complexity of AI, enabling IT Ops experts to build smarter systems faster.

The Marie Curie fellow will collaborate in high level research activities related with advanced Machine Learning, Classification and non-linear Regression systems, and techniques, applied to problems of high interest within the Telco Industry, focused on logs/events from machines and incidents from proprietary datasets.
