Data Scientist

As a data scientist you will push the boundaries of deep learning & NLP by conducting research in cutting-edge AI and apply that research to production scale data. Our data includes a large corpora of global patents in multiple languages and a wealth of metadata. The focus of your work will be to analyze, visualize, and interpret large text corpora as well as more traditional structured data. This includes recommending and implementing ML-based product features. We also expect to publish primary research and contribute to FOSS that we use.

This is an exciting opportunity to part of a startup that is applying deep learning to a real-world problem at global scale. We’re always looking for leaders and there is room to grow for the right person to take increasing responsibility working as part of a small and dynamic team.
