Machine Learning Engineer at The Engineered Innovation Group | Powderkeg


Please note: This job posting is not for immediate hire but rather an opportunity to submit an application for future consideration.

At The Engineered Innovation Group, we're passionate about building software that solves problems. We are searching for someone who brings fresh ideas, demonstrates a unique and informed viewpoint, and enjoys collaborating with a cross-functional team to develop real-world solutions and positive user experiences at every interaction.

Specifically, we are searching for a Machine Learning Engineer to help us define and build the next generation of features and products for our partners and clients.

About The Company

EIG is an innovation group that aims to help organizations create new products and services that drive growth and a competitive edge. We have clients in the healthcare, SaaS, sports, AI, supply chain, and marketing industries.

EIG is a small but growing innovation agency located in Indianapolis, IN. However, we believe that the best talent isn't geographically centralized and remote work is our norm.

Our Core Values (And we take them seriously)


We build trusted relationships with our employees, contractors, customers, vendors, and partners. Trust encompasses delivering projects on time, quality work, and ensuring our customers' proprietary information privacy and protection.

Insatiable Curiosity

We are incredibly curious, whether it is people, technologies, or academics. Our curiosity fuels our ability to discover possibilities and make them a reality.


We believe that the world is full of opportunities, and even failures are opportunities. Our job is to identify the opportunities and leverage them to make a positive impact.


Not only does science reveal that the crux of creativity is in having a team of diverse backgrounds and voices, but it is also the right thing to do.

Measured Creativity

Contrary to popular belief, creativity is not free form. Creativity is served by free-form thinking and techniques, but we believe creativity is as much science as an art.
