Senior NLP Applied Scientist

Remote ยท Munich, BY Germany

Come join a team of industry and science leaders to achieve a vision of empowering innovation through state-of-the-art artificial intelligence and machine learning. We are addressing exciting challenges for our customers, at the intersection of AI/ML and cutting-edge cloud infrastructure, with NLP being a core area of what we do and what we offer our customers.

What you would do

  • Provide scientific machine learning methodology leadership.
  • Use AI/ML to solve NLP tasks and hard challenges, primarily for internal projects (i.e. for our product offering) and also for external projects (e.g. for customer projects).
  • Build state-of-the-art models for cognitive services using various open source and machine learning principles and techniques (including but not limited to Classical Machine Learning such as logistic regression, SVM, NN, Clustering, and Deep Learning; including CNN, RNN, Transformer, Seq2Seq, BERT).
  • Brainstorm and design various POCs using ML/DL/NLP solutions for new or existing enterprise problems.
  • Collaborate with fellow scientists and software engineers to build out various parts of our AI/ML infrastructure, services, and solutions, and effectively communicate the solutions to address external and internal shareholder’s product challenges by presenting to highly technical audiences.
  • Present effective, highly technical and complex solutions and architectures to audiences with limited or no experience in machine learning solutions.

Your minimum qualifications are

  • Advanced degree (Ph.D. preferred, Masters accepted) in Computer Science, Physics, Electrical Engineering, Statistics or Mathematics, preferably with specialization in Artificial intelligence, Machine Learning, Speech Recognition, Natural Language Processing, Operations Research, or a related field.
