- Deep expertise and awareness about recent updates in the NLP field, knowledge of state-of-the-art NLP techniques and tools (transfer learning, pre-trained language models, document similarity/relevance search, applied language modeling, conditional text generation, etc)
- Strong Python skills, including at least one modern machine learning framework such as: Tensorflow, PyTorch, Keras
- Publications on NLP / ML conferences on relevant topics is a significant plus
What You’ll Do:
- Conduct similarity, relevance search and information retrieval
- Conduct applied language modeling, text generation and data augmentation
- Implement machine learning feedback loops
- Apply data privacy and data anonymization techniques
- Apply machine learning systems evaluation methodologies
What We Offer:
- A truly global mission with a passionate community in locations all over the world
- Huge impact and learning potential as our aspirations require bold innovation

What We Offer:
We take Talent very seriously and we are building a community of extraordinary individuals working together in very high performing teams. We also know that the best Talent always has options so we believe that the process has to be a two way assessment - the company AND the candidate assessing the business needs alignment, the career next step alignment, and the cultural alignment.
During the process we will begin by exploring the core factors regarding salary and location along with core experience and skills and values alignment. We will then deep dive explore the critical technical competencies we have identified for the role, and then we will deep dive in behavioral competencies.
The most aligned candidate will then be asked to do a practical work task simulation activity so we can make sure that you will enjoy the kind of work the role requires, and this task will typically be presented and discussed with a group of colleagues and managers. Finally we will ask you to meet with a number of our senior leaders to make sure that you are making the most informed call possible.
