About the role:
As an NLP Software Engineer, you'll apply methods from NLP and Machine Learning and to massive volumes of customer data. You'll support and enhance a stack that includes morphological analysis, tagging, NER, parsing, keyword extraction, classification, information retrieval, and summarization. You'll also work with multilingual data since we support 18 languages and are continually expanding.
The work has an R&D component but with a practical focus on applying methods from open source and the research literature to high-volume production pipelines. As such, you'll need solid development skills in Java and Python with experience in software testing, integration, and deployment. You'll work in a collaborative Agile/Scrum development environment where you'll mentor junior team members and in turn receive mentorship from others.
