Job Title: Lead Developer for Semantic Parsing

Job Rank: Programmer

Specialty Areas: Computational Linguistics; Semantics; Parsing


We are a startup from Düsseldorf and an emerging leader in language-based AI. Our product focus is on "Chatbots that understand". Our long-term goal is to develop digital agents with very broad and almost human-like communication capabilities. Because of our strong focus on NLU, we are looking to expand our team with the addition of a lead developer for semantic parsing.

You are the ideal candidate if you fulfill the following requirements:
- You have finished your Master's degree or a Ph.D. in linguistics, computational linguistics or a similar subject
- You have worked with different parse techniques, ontologies and frame based analysis
- You have a deep understanding in linguistic theory, especially in the area of semantics
- You have used different methods to handle morphology, autocorrection and named entity recognition
- You have a reasonably good command of an object-oriented programming language, preferably Java (having worked with the NLTK is not enough)
- You are eager to apply your knowledge and ideas to real-world challenges, in a comprehensive way
- Your German is at least at the B2-level

We are a team of highly motivated linguists, computational linguists, and computer scientists. We value team-work and the ability to move things forward and provide fresh solutions. Agile project management, close cooperation with colleagues, and flexible time-planning are characteristics of our working environment. An employee participation program underlines our orientation towards results achieved together.
