Who we are

Helsing is a defence AI company. Our mission is to protect our democracies. We aim to achieve technological leadership, so that open societies can continue to make sovereign decisions and control their ethical standards.

As democracies, we believe we have a special responsibility to be thoughtful about the development and deployment of powerful technologies like AI. We take this responsibility seriously.

We are an ambitious and committed team of engineers, AI specialists and customer-facing programme managers. We are looking for mission-driven people to join our European teams – and apply their skills to solve the most complex and impactful problems. We embrace an open and transparent culture that welcomes healthy debates on the use of technology in defence, its benefits, and its ethical implications.

  • Evolve the Helsing brand by exploring novel solutions aligned with our marketing objectives
  • Design compelling visuals for digital, print and experiential environments
  • Collaborate with product, program and communications teams to devise engaging ways of communicating our products

  • Are known for a meticulous, pixel perfect approach
  • Enjoy learning new tools, particularly AI image generation technologies
  • Capable of independently managing multiple projects, anticipating challenges, and formulating intelligent solutions
  • Have resilience and adaptability
  • Possess a quick learning curve and intellectual curiosity to explore new areas such as radar systems, military doctrine, cognitive load, and ethics
  • Are proficient in Figma and Adobe Creative Suite, especially Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign (knowledge of After Effects or Premiere is a plus)

Nice to have

  • Another creative skill such as copywriting, photography or videography
  • A second language, ideally French or German.

Note: The above bullet points describe the ideal candidate. None of us matched all of these at once when we first joined Helsing. We encourage you to apply even if you believe you meet only part of our wish list.

This position requires the successful applicant to apply for and be granted local security clearance and potentially other NATO security clearance.

Join Helsing and work with world-leading experts in their fields

  • Helsing’s work is important. You’ll be directly contributing to the protection of democratic countries while balancing both ethical and geopolitical concerns.
  • The work is unique. We operate in a domain that has highly unusual technical requirements and constraints, and where robustness, safety, and ethical considerations are vital. You will face unique Engineering and AI challenges that make a meaningful impact in the world.
  • Our work frequently takes us right up to the state of the art in technical innovation, be it reinforcement learning, distributed systems, generative AI, or deployment infrastructure. The defence industry is entering the most exciting phase of the technological development curve. Advances in our field of world are not incremental: Helsing is part of, and often leading, historic leaps forward.
  • In our domain, success is a matter of order-of-magnitude improvements and novel capabilities. This means we take bets, aim high, and focus on big opportunities. Despite being a relatively young company, Helsing has already been selected for multiple significant government contracts.
  • We actively encourage healthy, proactive, and diverse debate internally about what we do and how we choose to do it. Teams and individual engineers are trusted (and encouraged) to practise responsible autonomy and critical thinking, and to focus on outcomes, not conformity. At Helsing you will have a say in how we (and you!) work, the opportunity to engage on what does and doesn’t work, and to take ownership of aspects of our culture that you care deeply about.

What we offer

  • A focus on outcomes, not time-tracking
  • Competitive compensation and stock options
  • Relocation support
  • Social and education allowances
  • Regular company events and all-hands to bring together employees as one team across Europe
