Who Are We? [The Company]

Mingsee, Inc. is seeking to revolutionize the way computers can deal
with, comprehend and analyze text. With our proprietary algorithms and
products, we will be able to have computers deal with text as
effectively as computers can process numbers. We believe we will change
the way a very large number of people work, from researchers accessing
an already "read" database of text to lawyers relying on computers for 
case summaries to simply researching effectively on the web.

We, the founding members, are four people, coming from diverse
disciplines and backgrounds: a Harvard MBA, a Stanford MBA, a USC
graduate and a professor in linguistics. We have been working on our
proprietary algorithms for two and a half years and by now have many of
the key components in place. We have a patent pending for completed

Up till present, we have been funding the development efforts ourselves
and have already reached critical milestones in the development process.
 However, with the increase in importance of time to market and our
growing need for substantial amount of analytical and computing power,
we are also in the process of finalizing our initial outside funding to
continue and complete our development effort. 

Who Do We Need? [Qualifications]

We are seeking to hire really bright and highly analytically oriented
people to test and develop hypotheses and algorithms to complete our
product development. 

Candidates with linguistics background would require limited
introduction to the materials and approaches we work with. However, such
a background is not a requirement, since most of our methods and tools
are radically different from traditional linguistic approaches. We look
for the right combination of outstanding smarts and conducive attitude.
Knowledge of Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, German and French would also be

In addition to a dynamic and flexible working environment, we offer a
very competitive compensation package.
