Subject: Comp Ling:Dialog Design Engineers at Microsoft, Redmond, Washington,USA


Design, develop and code dialogs for Microsoft's new telephony and
speech recognition based applications and change the way people access their
data. The Speech Product Group-Telephony Applications (SPG-TA) team is
Microsoft's central organization for speech telephony technology. Be a
key component in this strategic and rapidly growing group. You will be
developing interactive dialogs for easy-to use applications, evaluating
application performance, and making recommendations to improve caller
satisfaction and transaction completion. Candidates need to enjoy a fast
paced, team-participation environment and have a genuine interest in speech
interface technology. Candidates should have working knowledge of
computer-human interfaces, and possess excellent communication and
analytical problem solving skills. Experience, related course work or deep
interest in dialog design is necessary, along with a willingness to work in
a structured, industrial software design and development process. A key part
of the day-to-day work in producing and maintaining a dialogue system is in
building the interface to the content so familiarity with SQL database and
Internet programming would be advantageous. Other key computer skills are
JavaScript and/or experience with other scripting languages, C, C++, and NT.
Desired education backgrounds are a BS, MS, PHD combining Computer Science
and/or Engineering with Linguistics, Cognitive Sciences, and Psychology, or
Human Factors Engineering.
