With over 18,000 brands, including HSBC, Verizon, and Home Depot, we are on a mission to make life easier for people and brands everywhere through trusted Conversational AI. We believe in a future where conversations are the norm for getting your intentions fulfilled - whatever they are.

We are an innovative, intent-driven company that believes in building the future and we are looking for growth minded, unconventional thinkers, developers and builders to join the team.

You will thrive here if: 

  • You can operate in a fast paced, dynamic environment

  • You see feedback or failure as motivation to learn and to grow
  • You believe data-driven decision making is the norm
  • You relate to our core principles (link) and want to work with Conversational AI experts

In this role, you will work with one of the world’s largest goal-oriented conversational datasets to push the boundaries of computational linguistics and drive innovative new products. In addition to a world-class data set, you’ll also have an at-scale population of expert data annotators (contact center agents) to help drive investigation and learning.

In this role you will:

  • Analyzing and drawing insights from large scale conversational datasets
  • Choosing between many available state-of-the-art methods and tools, and consistently finding the most effective, efficient, stable, explainable, and where possible, simple approaches
  • Designing and building modern, flexible pipelines and services for delivering and navigating insights 
  • Creating durable, flexible scientific deployment and experimentation capabilities
  • Work on challenging unsupervised and semi-supervised problems related to intent and dialog management, and create pipelines to accelerate and scale this effort
  • Using and presenting research findings in ways that inform and sometimes guide business and product strategy
  • Communicate the research findings to the internal business stakeholders.

Your qualifications are:

  • Masters/PhD in Mathematics, Statistics, Operations Research, Computer Science, Machine Learning or a related field, or BSc + Experience
  • Analysis, problem-solving, communication, and critical-thinking skills
  • Core strength in Statistical models, e.g., for significance testing, forecasting, regression, hypothesis testing,  causal inference, and AB testing
  • Understanding of ML fundamentals, ideally including Deep Learning
  • Strong hands-on programming skills, e.g., Python and SQL, 
  • Experience with frameworks for Statistical Analysis, Machine Learning (Pandas, Scikit-Learn, etc.)
  • Ability to efficiently write, test, monitor, and improve production-quality code
  • Curiosity and interest in learning new applications and tooling
  • Ability to work closely with teammates in a highly collaborative environment, as well as providing strong individual contributions
  • Production ML evaluation and monitoring performance once completed
  • Understanding of NLP/NLU is preferred
