NLP engineers commonly work in cross sectional teams, including individuals with experience in user experience, product design, marketing and other key company stakeholders. Many NLP engineers have quantitative training, with backgrounds in machine learning, data mining, statistics or developing artificial intelligence.

Job prospects for NLP engineers are estimated to increase dramatically over the coming years as more companies are interested in incorporating speech interaction into their products.
