As of today, we're hiring for a Conversational AI Researcher (NLP/ NLU) role to working in our growing AI team. The role involves designing and building prototypes, conducting research and experimentation, and providing expert advice on the design and integration of conversational agents. The ideal candidate will collaborate closely with the AI designer and backend team to create agentic workflows and ensure seamless delivery.

We are a dynamic team of engineers bringing together iterative NLP model development, high performance systems engineering and effective software development. Much of our work is highly experimental. We are not perfectionists, we move fast, and are not afraid to be on the learning curve. A willingness to learn and a can-do attitude are must-haves to survive and thrive in this team.

As a startup we often have to find a balance between speed, quality and cost of development. This often requires us to think creatively and even invent what doesn’t exist. We are ambitious, we take risks, and we embrace failure in a judgment free but accountable environment.

We work in a trust-based, mission-driven, goal-oriented, fully-remote work environment. We enable each other, but also consciously protect our time to deliver high quality work, to help create a thriving innovation culture.
