Sr. Computational Linguistics Programmer

Vital Text Systems (VTS), is a growing startup with interest and advisors from two world class corporations.

The founder team is seeking an experienced Sr. Computational Linguistics Programmer. This position can be full or part time. It is an equity position until our current funding round completes. We embrace geographically distributed US contributors working remotely. Nearby many of the highest valued academic institutions in the world, our New England location is a beautiful, peaceful environment for growing families. All things completing as agreed, the position is founder level full time employment with VTS immediately on close of the current funding round.

Our Model Candidate:

You must be a U.S. citizen. Masters, preferably PhD, requisite is determination to succeed. Significant computational linguistics, NLP and machine learning classifiers experience required. Very high order of persistence and ability to overcome adversity through dedicated effort. Strong communication and collaboration skills. Experience with Agile and Plan-driven (Waterfall) methodologies and current in languages appropriate to the problem solution.

Current Situation:

The VTS founders are: a serial entrepreneur software engineering leader in his sixth startup; a PhD professor of linguistics; VP Infrastructure; and three part time sr. software engineers. We are completing our next Minimum Viable Product (MVP) delivery in Q216. The primary feature of that release is integration with one of the top Requirements Engineering products of a $1.2Bn corporation. Senior staff corporate advisors in multiple industries review progress every month since late 2014. We are confident and expect to attract Series A VC investment within one year of growth following the current round of funding. We selected our legal team through a competitive program attended by the top five legal teams in our state. Our story is much bigger, we’re always eager to recount it.

Though much larger solution now our December 2013 regular patent application is here: Vital Text Systems WO 2014093935 A1.
