Are you a builder? Do you like challenges? At Soliloquy we are
creating new computer systems that address a broad range of
challenging communicative topics, including multiple languages,
speech, typed natural language, dynamic turn-taking, and non-verbal
communication, to name a few. We are looking for creative builders to
help us pave the way toward the next-generation interfaces that allow
people to interact with computers the same way that we communicate
with each other. But it's hard. That's where you come in. You can help
us get to the forefront of the communicative user interface

Soliloquy makes software that enables a more human conversational
interaction on web sites. Using our Experts, e-shoppers can
conversationally browse, find, and purchase products on-line. It's
like having a virtual shopping assistant who speaks your language and
has total product knowledge! Natural language understanding is part of
the technological magic, but it's our people who provide the real
magic. Soliloquists are hard-core programmers, Web site engineers,
linguists, e-commerce gurus, database experts, writers, user interface
developers, Ph.D.'s, college drop-outs, artists, professors and
astrophysicists. We work as a family and move quickly. We are growing
rapidly, earning valuable stock options, and having a BLAST in New
York City. Join us and help us change the way people interact with the
