Your new workplace
Yazzoom is a high-tech software company based in Ghent, Belgium. We provide AI-based software and R&D services for improving the company processes of our customers. Next to projects where we build custom software solutions for our customers, we have created an innovative software product called Yanomaly: a scalable plug-in software tool for anomaly detection and predictive analytics on machine generated data (https://www.machine-analytics.com). With our data science and software development team we are continually working on improving this software - both algorithmically and feature-wise. Yanomaly currently already monitors hundreds of industrial assets and we are rapidly expanding the install base of the product. Our team consists of smart and motivated high-tech professionals with various backgrounds. For the past 9 years we have delivered innovative solutions with a large added value to our customers. We are now ready for an accelerated expansion and internationalization and are looking for new colleagues that want to grow together with us.
