In this software development engineering role, you will embed into a team of research scientists, language engineers (linguists), data specialists, and technical program managers. Our team is responsible for the natural language understanding models in two key feature domains, including both machine learning models and deterministic models. Your work will directly impact our customers in the form of novel products and services that make use of speech and language technology. You will spend a portion of your time performing the same modeling tasks as our research scientists, and the remainder of your time will be spent building automation for natural language understanding development.
* Own the customer-facing machine learning and deterministic models for a specific domain of features, * Build and release new models that elevate the customer experience and track the impact over time, * Propose new modeling solutions and run experiments to prove their efficacy, * Collaborate with colleagues from science, engineering, and business backgrounds, and * Build novel software solutions to accelerate model development
