I'm the tech lead for the R&D team at Automated Insights, a company that turns raw data into human-sounding narratives. Our SaaS platform, Wordsmith, generated billions of articles last year for companies like the AP, Yahoo, and Activision.
The team's responsibility is mainly algorithm development (machine learning and natural language processing, as well as more traditional methods), with the goal of making Wordsmith more powerful and easier to use. We primarily develop in Python (spaCy, gensim, scikit-learn, Tensorflow) and NodeJS. We're looking for an engineer with a couple years experience and familiarity with machine learning. A research background and/or advanced degree is a plus.
Interview: Quick chat with HR, technical phone screen, at-home programming evaluation, on-site interview. No adversarial whiteboard sessions or trivia quizzes.
