Jobs: Computational Linguistics: Rank Open, Cataphora

Editor for this issue: Catherine Adams <catherinlinguistlist.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.

Cataphora is a young, growing company, building a business centered on 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 computational
linguistics, natural language processing, natural language engineering,
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 approaches. 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 conceivable.)
