The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to engage in non-discriminatory hiring practices. We urge employers not to discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, disability, 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.

This job involves working with Oracle Knowledge software to help customers implement Oracle Knowledge tools and to manage the implementation once it goes live. Oracle Knowledge encompasses 3 main technologies: Search (Natural Language Search Engine), Information Manager (Content Management System), and Analytics (data on how the tools are being used). The Language Engineer will learn to configure and operate all 3 technologies and apply that knowledge in new implementations of the software package, upgrades, and Managed Services. They will lead the design and implementation of the 3 technologies, so they must be comfortable speaking with customers about the technologies and to think on their feet about design recommendations and be able to solve problems within the parameters of what the technologies allow.
