Oracle is hiring computational linguists who are native or near-native speaker of Swedish, Danish and Norwegian (Bokmål) and computational linguists who are native or near-native speakers of Japanese. Fluency in English is assumed. We are hiring computational linguists with R&D experience in NLP development and advanced scripting skills to help automate language resource creation and build toolsets for the Oracle RightNow Virtual Assistant product (voice-enabled question and answer). This role is a full-time position (40 hours/week) and will be based in Bucharest, Romania with some travel to Amsterdam, The Netherlands and /or Barcelona, Spain, where the alpha teams are located, for training.

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.

You are 100% solutions-oriented, and interested in driving process and pushing deliverables across multiple functional areas, actively building relationships with key stakeholders across projects. We operate across time zones in a flexible work environment, so your flexibility is key to your success in this role. If teamwork, energy and a passion for driving efficiencies through automation define who you are and how you work, we want to hear from you!

Desired Profile:
- Demonstrated experience automating language resource creation (grammars, dictionaries, ontologies)
- Significant experience developing tools and /or providing input to tools and process development for automatic named entity recognition
- Experience in industrial R&D
- Team player with proven skills around triaging issues and problem solving with key stakeholders across multiple projects
- Proven track record in NLPSkills:
- Native or near-native English and Swedish, Danish and Norwegian (Bokmål) OR

Nice to have:
