Job description
As an integral part of our technology team, you will work on the core of our natural language query engine.

Indexing & understanding messy data

Helping people navigate large, complex datasets

So, if you desire to build technologies that change the way people interact with machines, you’ll love working with us. When applying, please tell us about some of the real world problems you have worked on using NLP, ML, and/or search (information recall) techniques.

Salary range: $120K – $160K

Equity range: 0.05% – 0.15%
