Principal Full Stack Engineer
I have been interested in Natural Language Processing (“NLP”) for a while now, and finally, I have an opportunity to work hands-on with NLP systems. Getting paid to work across the stack on applied NLP systems is a dream come true.
Sitting in and seeing non-technical users grokking at how our models work is pretty fantastic.
Ideally, they have a passion for language and teaching computers to understand, paired with an acute ability to listen and see through our end users’ eyes.
Since 2018 there have been significant developments in NLP (e.g., BERT and transformers), so taking those cutting-edge advancements and applying them to our product to help improve how we as humans convey information to each other is a big lift.
Configuring the data in a digestible dashboard for our non-technical users. Our solution could be the best in the world, but if our buyers and end-users aren’t appreciating the value it’s bringing to the table, that’s an issue.
