At DefinedCrowd, we make machines smarter for Fortune 500 companies. Our focus is on improving Artificial Intelligence technologies through natural language processing – and we need native Hindi linguists to help train these models.

To train these models we collect data via crowdsourcing on our platform. We will be starting multiple data collection soon for these languages, and we’re searching for a few language experts to provide expertise on their native language to ensure the data we collect is high-quality and meets our expectations.

We’re expecting to start four different jobs within the next few weeks:
- Validation of Text-To-Speech audio recordings (does the audio sound like a native speaker?)
- Speech Collections from our members
- Speech Validation of the collected recordings
- Phonetic Transcriptions (linguists only)

You will be helping us with the following:
- Creation of localized instructions that are easy to understand and follow our internal guidelines
- Prior to launching these data collections, we will need you to test the workflow and create a challenging qualification test for our users
- Auditing and reviewing data collected, and providing analysis
- Possibly identifying regional dialects, depending on the language

Preferred Qualifications:
- Must have a Linguistics degree
- Must be fluent in English
- Native speaker of Hindi
- 3+ years of experience in the Linguistics field is preferred
