As an organisation, we push the boundaries of data science, optimisation and artificial intelligence to solve the most complex problems in industry. Satalia, a Wunderman Thompson Company, is a community of individuals devoted to working on diverse and challenging projects, allowing you to flex your technical skills whilst working with a tight knit team of high performing colleagues.

Led by our founder (who is also WPP’s Chief AI Officer), Satalia’s ambition is to become a decentralised organisation of the future. Today this involves developing tools and processes to liberate and automate manual repetitive tasks, with a focus on freedom, transparency and trust. At the core of our thinking is an approach to wellbeing and inclusivity. We unpack human behaviour and unpick prejudice to ensure a safe and inviting environment. We offer true flexible working and allow our employees to find the working practice that makes them most productive. At Satalia, your opinion matters and your achievements are celebrated.



We are investing massively in developing next generation generative AI tools, including workstreams covering text, image, video, audio, and research. We are building large scale, enterprise grade solutions and serving these innovations to our clients and WPP agency partners.

We are seeking a highly skilled Cloud Developer to create and maintain the cloud infrastructure for our Typescript and Python-based web APIs. Our solutions will not be tied to a specific cloud platform, so the ideal candidate should have a strong understanding of cloud architecture with either Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP) or Microsoft Azure and be willing to work across all clouds. You will be responsible for deploying commercial-grade APIs using Python Docker images, Typescript serverless functions and various cloud resources such as Kubernetes, storage buckets, pipelines and state stores. All infrastructure and deployment must be fully automated using Terraform.

You will be joining a product team in developing these zero to one innovations over a multi-year roadmap. You will be working with the latest technologies across our technology stack, including optimising AI workloads that scale to meet client needs.

It is a great time to be joining as the industry transforms itself in what we believe is a generational moment for technology and AI.
