Job Announcement: Oracle

Computational Linguistics; NLP: Software Engineer, Oracle, Bucharest, Romania

Employer: Oracle
Job Location: Bucharest, Romania
Title: Computational Linguist
Rank: Software Engineer
Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics
LL Issue: 24.1377
Date Submitted: 20-Mar-2013
Job Description: Oracle is hiring Software Engineers with experience in NLP development and advanced scripting and object-oriented programming skills to automate language resource creation and build toolsets for the Oracle RightNow Virtual Assistant product (voice-enabled question/answer). This role is a full-time position (40 hours/week) and will be based in Bucharest, with occasional travel to Amsterdam, The Netherlands, where the alpha team is located.

The Oracle RightNow Virtual Assistant delivers contextual, interactive engagements that draw from relevant information and result in rich, seamless interactions that build trust and loyalty. More opportunities are generated because Virtual Assistant moves beyond answering questions by understanding customer intent to provide deeper engagements not typically associated with self-service.

1. Demonstrated experience automating language resource creation (grammars, dictionaries, ontologies)
2. Significant experience developing tools and process for automatic named entity recognition
3. Significant experience in industrial R&D
4. Team player with proven skills around triaging issues and problem solving with key stakeholders across multiple projects
5. Proven track record in NLP development
