Description:
Have you ever watched the movie Her? Have you ever wondered or wished to have a virtual partner just like Samantha, who could tell you what you really are, whom your best partner may be, and even cheers you up? At Juji, we are building a hyper-personalized, virtual REP (Responsible, Empathetic Pal) for everyone. Your REP not only understands who you are, including your personality, motivations, and strengths, but it can also chat with you to learn and help fulfill your certain needs.

We are seeking highly motivated and talented students, who are eager to help us tackle great technical challenges at Juji and to expand their knowledge and skills in the real world. We are especially interested in students who have had worked or love to work in the following areas: Artificial Intelligence, Natural Language Processing/Natural Language Generation, Machine Learning, Human-Computer Interaction, Information Visualization/Visual Analytics, and Cognitive Science.

We have multiple positions on two main tracks:

Software development. If you love to create amazing software technologies and systems for real users, this is the track for you. You are expected to own and deliver a relatively independent project that will contribute to our cutting-edge product development effort.

Scientific research. If you love to design and conduct scientific experiments to answer a specific set of research questions, this is the track for you. You will work on a government funded research project on understanding human trust in a digital environment. You are expected to play a critical role in designing and conducting novel research studies and writing papers that lead to scientific publications.

Application Deadline: Open until filled.
