Various Roads Lead To Merantix
Jonas Probst, Ph.D.
Managing Partner | MX Labs
I studied physics and mathematics at the TU Munich, Cambridge, and the ENS Paris before doing my PhD in Theoretical Physics at Oxford, where I conducted research on String Theory. After gaining work experience outside academia, I realized that I wanted to apply my mathematical and modelling skills on real-world problems and in a dynamic environment, ideally whilst still being close to research. I became more and more interested in deep learning, which promised to tick all the boxes, and found out about Merantix from a friend, who praised it as one of the most serious and interesting AI companies in Europe.
Currently, I am leading MX Labs as Managing Partner where we are working with industry partners to develop tailored AI solutions. Merantix’s company culture is open and cooperative, and we often go out to one of the many restaurants, bars, and parks that Berlin has to offer.
Data Engineer | Automotive
I studied physics and mathematics at the TU Munich, Cambridge, and the ENS Paris before doing my PhD in Theoretical Physics at Oxford, where I conducted research on String Theory. I gained work experience at an e-commerce start-up and as a quant at Barclays Investment Bank.
Towards the end of my doctorate I realized that I wanted to apply my mathematical and modelling skills outside of academia on real-world problems and in a dynamic environment, ideally whilst still being close to research. I became more and more interested in deep learning, which promised to tick all the boxes, and found out about Merantix from a friend, who praised it as one of the most serious and interesting AI companies in Europe. I really liked the team as well as the diverse and research-oriented work at Merantix and decided to join as a Machine Intelligence Engineer.
I have mainly been working on our Trading Technology venture, which builds and develops intelligent models that predict and monetize on short-term market movements. Merantix’s company culture is open, cooperative, and fun, and we often go out to one of the many restaurants, bars, and parks that Berlin has to offer.
Christian Leibig, Ph.D.
Machine Intelligence Engineer | MX Healthcare
Before joining Merantix, I studied, researched and worked in physics, neural information processing and machine learning, both for academia and industry. The aesthetics of physics lies in often creative ways of simplifying complex problems and neural information processing systems provide a wealth of complex problems to tackle.
I heard about Merantix through a former colleague of mine and initially contacted Merantix out of pure curiosity and for potential collaborations for my own projects. When I met these highly skilled people working closely together on a diverse array of topics, I changed my original plans and decided to join them. For me, it was about the right mix of professional software engineering and state-of-the-art deep learning applied to real-world problems. People are very energetic, they come from many different countries and therefore provide a great cultural mix. Both within Merantix and Berlin there are great people to meet and hang out with. I think this diversity is particularly important for technology-oriented ventures.
Oliver Eidel, MD
Software Engineer | MX Healthcare
As a kid, I experimented with early php programming and subsequently set out to study computer science. I found the creation of something which can instantaneously be used by a lot of people incredibly motivating and appealing. However, a hospital internship in high school changed my mind and I ended up studying medicine in Heidelberg. During my doctorate thesis on brain tumors and MRI imaging, I started writing software again. Initially, this was born out of necessity but I pretty soon re-discovered my love for programming. I realized that software would be highly decisive for the future of healthcare and that I was in a good position to leverage both my medical and my programming experience.
At Merantix, I found an environment with high velocity, smart people and game changing technology. I joined in a very early phase and was one of the first people working on the medical project, developed the first prototype of our product and assembled our software development team. For me, working at Merantix is great because it allows me to combine my background in medicine with my passion for software development – all of that within an inspiring environment.
