The Challenge

As a Machine Learning Researcher in the recently established AI Lab of the Data Analytics & Insights unit you will be responsible for developing novel machine learning solutions to privacy and security issues that occur in our modern connected life.

You work on projects that extend Avira's current products with machine intelligence, but also on visionary projects that tackle privacy and security issues of the future.
