Professional Services Consultants (Two Positions)

Our client develops and markets software solutions for retrieving
accurate information from corporate document databases and the Internet,
using advanced computational linguistics and natural language processing
(NLP). They use the power of spoken and written language- (the
words we use every day) to define and find desired information.

Their solutions use language and understand concepts in context. They
dramatically boost the accuracy of information retrieval over key word
search engines, overcoming their frustrating limits. 

A twenty-year-old company, they are shifting focus from project-based
consulting to product-based marketing. With excellent Venture Capital
backing for this new initiative, they are not a start-up, but a
"restart". Based in Europe, they are aggressively expanding
in North America, where they have significant and growing revenues. 
They require a new team member, an experienced consulting manager, who
will have the opportunity to build, shape and grow the post-sales
customer support organization to handle the burgeoning customer base.
