Machine Learning Engineer

About Luminai

Nearly every large organization in the world still relies on manual work to carry out critical internal processes. These are processes that keep the world going — enrolling patients in a hospital, underwriting loans inside a bank, or processing new transactions for an airline. Yet most companies don’t have enough resources to properly automate these tasks and are stuck in manual, decades old way of doing things.

At Luminai, we develop technology to automate long-form organization wide workflows of any complexity easily and safely using AI. Luminai serves some of the world’s most critical organizations in sectors like Healthcare, Finance, and Telecommunication to delegate mission-critical workflows that previously required hands-on human involvement, over to autonomous AI systems. Our approach combines frontier AI development, with a purpose built workflow execution engine to achieve this goal.
