We are building a smart home alarm and monitoring device that will change the way people approach the health & security of their home. Our ambition is that millions of people will use Minut to understand what’s going on inside their homes — allowing them to improve their safety today and catch any small issues before they become big issues.

We are trying to create a truly personalised product for each customer. That means delivering tailored insights and advice to each person based on their own situation and needs — whether that’s protecting their home from intruders & fire, or ensuring it’s an environmentally safe place to raise a family. All technology, from our custom hardware to the neural nets powering insights to our users, is developed in-house which gives you a unique opportunity to interact and learn from people with a broad range of backgrounds.

One of the core technologies in Minut’s stack is our in-house acoustic event detection system, which recognizes certain events (e.g glass break, sirens, dog barks, door bells) by analyzing sound. It consists of an on-device module that performs feature extraction and a first pass through a neural network, as well as a backend component that does a second pass against a larger network to further improve accuracy.

As part of the Research team, you’ll work on Minut’s audio analysis software stack, related tooling for managing data sets and training, as well as assisting our data scientists in exploring new data sources and applications.

Who are you?

  • You want to be part of a team where the whole technology stack is developed in-house and you interact with everyone involved.
  • You have experience with modern machine learning technologies and tools to manage large quantities of data.
  • You enjoy the challenge of keeping both a high pace and quality.
  • You are curious and get things done. 
  • You are fluent in C and Python.

What you'll work on

  • Develop and maintain the on-device and backend audio recognition components.
  • Scale and develop tools for managing data sets and automating training and verification.
  • Developing new features by applying machine learning on other data sources.

Our current tech stack includes

  • TensorFlow, Keras, Python, Node.js, Docker, Git, AWS

Perks and Benefits

  • Ability to influence everything

    Minut’s organisation is flat and transparent. Executive team meetings are open for all to join. Results of board meetings are presented at all-hands meetings. Once inside, you’ll have access to all data to be able to participate in the decision-making.

  • Responsibilities beyond the normal

    The room to grow as an individual at Minut is immense. As a small team breaking new ground, you’ll get to take on tasks and responsibilities that you likely wouldn’t be able to do elsewhere and we’ll help you get there.

  • Ownership

    Comes through responsibility, but at Minut we also translate that into financial ownership. All full-time employees are offered a generous stock options package. If we do well together, everyone benefits.

  • Incredible flexibility and travel

    Whether you’re a parent or need some extra time to focus, you’re always welcome to work from home from time to time. We only ask that you communicate in advance and let your colleagues know. If you’re travelling, take the opportunity to work from any of our offices in Malmö, London or Stockholm.

  • Stellar colleagues

    Work with some of the best people in the industry who recently worked at companies such as Apple, Google and S’well. Or why not challenge Fredrik on how to reverse engineer a 4G base station?

Workplace and Culture


Joy, experimentation and curiosity may not lead us on the straightest path but it will take us the furthest. We work hard to help and challenge each other to break new ground. 


We believe in opportunities to share, socialise and relax with colleagues. "Fika" is a lot more than a simple coffee break. Sometimes these moments lead to the best ideas.


Whether you need to pick up the kids or simply take care of that in-home delivery, the hours and location where you work can be flexible from time to time. It's a marathon, not a sprint.
