We are building human-driven NLP technologies and are seeking an experienced, proactive data scientist to join our newly formed engineering team. An ideal candidate will have a strong background in natural language processing methods and experience with a range of text classification problems. We have a particular interest in event extraction/detection, entity recognition, slot-filling tasks, document classification, and zero-/few-shot learning. Secondary experience in forecasting, time series, and/or active learning methods will also be beneficial. As this is a new team, we are looking for candidates who are willing to help grow the organization by taking on a range of responsibilities across the technical spectrum, as well as effectively collaborate to deliver findings to our customers.
The position may require some on-site work in Northern Virginia for team and client meetings.

Research and develop machine learning methods for a wide range of text extraction and classification tasks, often with limited labels and/or in multiple languages
Design and implement tools for monitoring and forecasting trends in signals derived from text data
Work effectively, in an often self-directed environment, to estimate timelines, communicate progress, and identify avenues for future research and development
Perform analyses and generate detailed data products for internal stakeholders and external clients
Institute MLOps principles in our software development practices and platform development
Deliver version-controlled, documented, and reproducible analyses and experiments that can be readily transitioned into scalable inference services
Work Experience and Skills
Advanced degree in computer science, math/statistics, engineering, linguistics, social science, or a related field
5+ years of experience in the data science field (this is flexible depending on academic work)
Proficiency with major Python data science libraries, including the SciPy stack and Scikit-learn
Experience with at least one deep learning and/or NLP framework (Tensorflow, PyTorch, Transformers, etc.)
Knowledge and understanding of pre-trained language models like BERT and GPT
Familiarity with other commonly used technologies including Linux operating systems, SQL/NoSQL databases, etc.
