Job Description


What You’ll Do

The workplace of the future will be powered by AI and the MindMeld team is making that a reality. Our small team was recently acquired by Cisco to power conversational interfaces for their Collaboration portfolio. Our first step will be to bring voice AI to meeting rooms. As a Data Scientist,

  • You will analyze data from query logs and crowdsourced simulations
  • You will prototype work flows for data acquisition and augmentation, to enable training and evaluating machine learning models
  • You will produce empirical insights to iteratively improve our conversational interfaces
Who You’ll Work With

You’ll join a small, high-caliber team of machine learning specialists who are passionate about the future brought by AI. We move fast, continuously improve, and deliver high-impact results. We’re not only aiming to build a conversational AI; we strive to build the best conversational AI application the world has ever seen.

Who You Are

You have a passion for and experience in data analysis, natural language processing and conversational interfaces. You thrive in an agile development process, and you look forward to joining a collaborative team of high-caliber experts. You’re not just looking for a job, you’re looking for an innovative product where you can make a large impact. You’re self-motivated and set high expectations for yourself, you take ownership and sweat the small stuff. You flourish with constructive feedback, you insist that facts drive decisions, and you deliver results that matter.

Our Minimum Requirements Are

  • B.S. or advanced degree in a quantitative discipline (e.g. cognitive science, statistics, psychology)
  • 6+ years’ experience of data science working on NLP/ML/IR products or research
  • Familiarity with inferential statistics and machine learning data pipelines
  • Experience with crowdsourcing, search log analysis, or voice UX analysis
  • Demonstrated ability to conduct and interpret quantitative and qualitative analyses using noisy data sets
  • Experience using Python/R or similar scripting languages to manipulate, analyze and visualize large data sets
  • Experience with programmatic usage of SQL databases and search engines
  • Strong communication and problem-solving skills
