Rank of Job: Linguist
Specialty Areas: Computational Linguistics/AI/Knowledge Engineering

Cataphora is a young, growing company, building a business whose focus
is the analysis of large corpora of electronic documents, a field rich
in technological and commercial opportunities. We have a core
technology, a working product, and a focused team of experienced and
passionate software professionals with broad expertise. Our customer
base is expanding and we are profitable.
We seek individuals with outstanding skills in the analysis of
multi-lingual electronic corpora. We are open in principle to a
variety of training, experience, and inclination---linguistics,
artificial intelligence and its applications, knowledge engineering.
We are especially interested in individuals comfortable with the
techniques and relative merits of both symbolic and statistical
techniques. We actively engage both in the development of new
advances of our core technology and product line and in the
application of stable technology to customer needs. In the long run,
both are essential to the health of our company; but in the short run,
satisfying current customers is critical to our success. Current
customers are often driven by impending deadlines and stringent
criteria whose violation imposes significant penalties. This lends a
certain intensity to the Cataphora working environment, and
concomitant opportunities to earn significant rewards (along with
considerable flexibility in working hours).
If this combination of rewards and challenges attracts you and 
you are interested in constructing working systems with demonstrated
and growing value, we want to hear from you. (It is not our policy
to handle relocations; TN visas or H1 visa transfers, however, are
