AI Expert (In Residence)

Full-time · Hybrid in The Netherlands

Are you ready to make a real-world impact with AI? Do you dream of working alongside brilliant minds and joining forces with industry and academic leaders to drive innovation? 

Well, look no further because Kickstart AI has the perfect opportunity for you!

Here's the deal: we're all about tackling real-world problems with cutting-edge AI solutions. As an innovative non-profit initiative, we've brought together influential tech companies like KLM, ING, Ahold Delhaize, and NS, along with top universities and research institutes. Together, we're on a mission to make a difference in the world by turning scientific insights into practical AI solutions that benefit Dutch society. 

Now, here's where you come in. We're on the lookout for exceptional AI Experts to join our product & rotation team. As an AI Expert in Residence you'll seamlessly integrate into the Data & AI teams at some of the Netherlands' largest and most impactful companies. Working closely with Sophia, our project manager, and Jael, our product lead, you'll identify AI challenges at industry leaders that will greatly benefit from cross-pollination. You're not a consultant in the traditional sense; you're a not-for-profit catalyst spreading knowledge and solutions to benefit all. 

Now, let's talk about you. You are an experienced expert in AI topics such as MLops, Synthetic data, or Reinforcement Learning. Equally as important, you're as excited about Responsible AI as we are. You are committed to building AI solutions that are not only powerful but also ethical and socially responsible. Your deep understanding of data and predictive modelling techniques make you a true AI Expert.

Why sign on

  • Because we will pay you up to 6k per month and throw in a 15% premium. Granted, that’s mainly because we don’t have a pension scheme just yet, but it does add up.
  • Because you want to make a measurable positive impact on society and you are a true ambassador of our cause.
  • Because you dream big and want to team up with like-minded industry leaders. 
  • Because corporate-funded environments that give back to the community are few and far between.


  • A degree in Computer Science, Mathematics, Artificial Intelligence, or a related field.

  • At least 5 years of relevant work experience in a similar role, proving your experience in MLops, Synthetic Data and/or Reinforcement Learning.

  • You don't need VISA sponsorship (unfortunately, we're not able to offer it at the moment).

  • Located in the Netherlands or willing to relocate at your own cost.

  • Security screening and providing references should not be a problem. 

Ready to join a team that's shaping a future so bright, you'll need shades? 😎
