Jobs: English, Semantics, Taxonomy: Consultant, Qwiki

Editor for this issue: Erica Wicks <ericalinguistlist.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.

Description:

Qwiki is a Silicon Valley-based start-up funded by thought leaders in the
information retrieval space. We're looking for a team member versed in
taxonomies for a long-term consulting relationship to help us build a
hierarchical taxonomy classifying people, places, and things: telecommuting
is OK.

The position involves analyzing machine-generated categorization output and
translating it into an efficient, human-readable format (i.e. consolidating
thousands of categorical machine driven results into a set of 100 human
classifications).

Our team is fun to work with and you'll play a special role in the creation
of what we believe to be an incredible improvement in the way the world
gets its information. The position is perfect for a self-managed individual
with 15-20 hours per week to dedicate to building our taxonomy from the
ground up. Graduate credentials and industry experience preferred.

Please submit resumes to the email address below with subject line
'Taxonomist'.

Application Deadline: 01-Dec-2009
