Jobs: English & Comp Ling: Computational Linguist, Hapax LLC

Editor for this issue: Bethany Townsend <bethanylinguistlist.org>

The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we have no means of enforcing these standards.

Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international employment page at http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

If you hold a Masters in Computational Linguistics and would like to join a
leader in Natural Language Processing, we'd like to meet you. Hapax holds
numerous patents in NLP and will imminently launch Amplify, a revolutionary
web service that brings human understanding to any English-language,
textual web content. Designed as an open, high-volume platform, Amplify
will change the way the world uses web content.

This product was created by our talented team of linguists and developers,
based in both Sweden and the United States and supported by first-rate
professors of Computational Linguistics and Sociolinguistics. We will now
expand that team, to take Amplify into new territory. This is a unique and
challenging opportunity for the computational linguist who would like to
see NLP out of the lab and into the mainstream of the commercial web.

Our company is established (founded 1999), commercially proven, and very
well-funded. We think of ourselves as an established company with a
start-up attitude: we wake up every day psyched, and every day we tackle
new and challenging tasks. If you have the credentials, the energy, the
creativity and the desire to be part of a highly motivated,
absolutely-for-profit enterprise in the NLP space, Hapax merits your
consideration. We offer competitive salaries, excellent benefits, a fun and
casual working environment and the real prospect of being part of something
very big.

Our US office is located in beautiful Annapolis, Maryland, on the
Chesapeake Bay and close to Washington DC and Baltimore. As the State
Capital, the home of the US Naval Academy, and a world-famous yachting
community, Annapolis is rich in history, culture and fun things to do. The
quality of life here is very high, and the cost of living is reasonable.

Candidates should hold a Masters Degree in CL, be willing to relocate
themselves to Maryland, and be ready to hit the ground running. Some
background in Computer Science is required; programming and scripting
skills are a real plus. Only candidates with current, permanent and legal
working status in the United States will be considered. Given the nature of
what we do, complete fluency in English is a basic requirement.

Resumes by email only, please. We look forward to getting to know you.


Michael T. Petit
