NLP Engineer Salary in Washington D.C.

NLP Engineer Job Description

Natural language processing (NLP) engineers are focused on incorporating natural voice interactions into services and products, by turning written text or spoken speech into something that a computer can understand and act upon. 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 or experience, with backgrounds in machine learning, data mining, statistics or developing artificial intelligence. Other important skills include programming in one or more languages or knowledge of statistical software.

While many people may be familiar with digital voice assistants by Amazon, Google and Apple, many more companies, including more traditional ones, are incorporating speech interaction into their products or services to improve the user experience. Job prospects for NLP engineers are estimated to increase dramatically over the coming years.
