 Competitive salary based on experience

A global leader in machine intelligence matching job seekers with their perfect career: our client’s goal is human level parsing. They’re on the hunt for an NLP Engineer whose passion for NLP is matched only by their interest in Machine Intelligence and their ability to drive quality improvements, measurement standards, and error analysis processes for the NLP framework. You’ll work with their data scientists and machine learning engineers who, it must be said, are a dazzlingly unique team representing over 30 nationalities!

To join this fascinating group, you’ll need strong Perl experience without being shackled to your Perl roots. Currently, 70% of the current stack is Perl, but the client anticipates this will decrease as they transfer to Python. Change is good, and you’ll be at the front of the charge to help them shift from Perl to Python. Add in your text processing experience (or keen interest), Artificial Intelligence, or Computational Logistics, and they’ll be waving you over to their table.

Speaking of tables, did we mention the free lunch? What about the free snacks, drinks, and the all-important Friday beverages? Toss in a great location that’s walking distance from the metro, an annual week-long hackathon to keep you on your toes, and a team that can teach you to say “I heart NLP” in multiple languages, and you may have just found your new job.
