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.

NetBase is the insight discovery company. We're a well-funded, fast-growing
start-up that has already acquired an impressive roster of top-tier Fortune
500 clients. We develop and market a next-generation SaaS solution that
combines search and text analytics to help business users answer complex
questions faster, more accurately, and with greater confidence because it
finds and extracts the most relevant information from billions of public
and private sources of online content. Our advanced semantic search
technology combines with patent-pending lenses to focus each search and
intelligently guide each user to highly relevant answers.

NetBase Solutions assist market researchers at Fortune 1,000 companies with
netnography and social media understanding, and enable science, technology
and medical (STM) publishers to make searches of their proprietary content
much faster and more productive, thereby increasing the value of their
content. Five of the top ten consumer packaged goods companies, including
Procter & Gamble, and two of the top three STM publishers, including Reed
Elsevier, use NetBase to find answers faster.

Based in the heart of Silicon Valley and privately held, NetBase offers a
family-friendly, flexible, engineer-centric working environment that values
open communication and emphasizes results over process.

most-scalable natural language platform in existence
