Alias-i, the makers of the LingPipe suite of NLP tools, is hiring
developers to work on:
- Natural language processing API development
- Natural language processing application development
- Enterprise architecture design and integration
- User interface design and coding
We expect that it would take two full time positions or part-time
equivalents to cover what we need. More details below:
We need a machine learning savvy Java API developer to help extend our
"source released" LingPipe suite of tools. While we focus on language
processing, generic machine learning/statistical methods skills are
fine since the directions we want to go are not language processing
Natural language processing application development:
We need one full time position (or part-time equivalents) devoted to
our Phase II Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant from the
U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH). Our goal is a topic- and
entity-faceted search engine making heavy use of query refinement and
topic discovery, and suited to queries derived from high throughput
lab experiments. We are collaborating with researchers at the Harvard
University Medical School, who have real biology problems to solve.
Enterprise architecture design and integration:
We are increasingly called upon to deliver web applications with
LingPipe. We need an experienced architect/developer to design
scalable enterprise application friendly implementations of spell
checking, sentiment, named entity extraction etc.
User interface design and development:
Our NIH work involves developing usable web interfaces for biomedical
researchers. This includes design, usability testing and coding
(although that could be subcontracted).
We're located in a sunny loft office in Brooklyn, New York, just
across the East River from downtown Manhattan, and convenient to
public transportation. We are not considering full-time
If you're interested, please send us an electronic copy of your
resume, a cover note briefly explaining how your skills and interests
match our requirements, and a description of your visa status for
working in the United States.
No headhunters, please.
The start date is as soon as possible. The position will remain open
