Description: is an early stage venture funded startup in Palo Alto that is disrupting the way customer support is delivered. Are you interested in joining a startup where you can play a crucial role in designing and building state-of-art AI products vs. being a cog in the wheel in big groups at big companies? Do you have what it takes to solve challenging AI problems and build cutting edge AI products? Would you like to be a part of a small elite team of AI engineers in Silicon Valley that is building one of the most advanced AI systems for automating enterprise business processes?

We have an opportunity for a Natural Language Processing (NLP) Engineer, or Computational Linguist or Ontologist to play a key role in developing a high-profile AI platform in use by many of the world’s most-respected organizations. The ideal candidate will have experience in developing natural language processing and understanding systems in different contexts such as information retrieval, intelligent agents, spoken dialog systems or recommendation systems. Individuals in this role should be experts in natural language processing (parsing, entity recognition and detection, text classification, etc.), language modeling (including knowledge in very large scale language modeling).

Desired Skills:

- PhD, MS or equivalent experience in natural language processing or computational linguistics or ontologies
- Impressive projects in NLP or knowledge engineering or auto generation of ontologies or related fields
- Passion for challenging the status quo and translating novel ideas into products
- Experience developing software using a programming language, preferably Python.

Why you should apply:

- AI for automating enterprise business processes is a huge opportunity. You’ll have an opportunity to be a pioneer in a field that will define how machines and humans interact for the next decade or more.
- Unique opportunity to join a venture-funded AI startup founded by seasoned serial entrepreneurs which is still in early stages (pre series-A)
- You will be tackling some of the most exciting problems at the cutting edge of NLP/ Computational Linguistics/Knowledge Engineering and AI, in general.
- You will be surrounded by passionate entrepreneurs who have lots of experience in solving real world AI problems! We’re a small, tight-knit team doing big things.
- We value innate intelligence, the curiosity to learn more, and the ability to solve hard problems. We reward innovation, creativity, initiative and teamwork.

Compensation: This is a key role and our compensation will reflect that.

Join us to define the new boundaries of AI and have plenty of fun along the way.
