To achieve this, we’ve brought together one of the largest teams of scientists, clinicians, mathematicians and engineers to focus on combining the ever growing computing power of machines, with the best medical expertise of humans, to create a comprehensive, immediate and personalised health service and make it universally available.

We’re only as good as our people. So finding the best people is everything to us. We serve millions, but we choose our people one at a time…
What do we want?
We are looking for a motivated and creative engineer, who has experience in NLP to join our AI team to support and release great products that incorporate cutting-edge natural language processing. You will be working with our ML and NLP scientists and engineers to expand the capability of our information extraction pipeline and to incorporate the latest research ideas on disambiguation and co-reference resolution. NLP forms one of the pillars of practically all our products, and your effort will contribute heavily to the core services that enable AI throughout babylon. You will help us build and support great products across babylon, as well as shaping our vision of an intelligent virtual assistant for the medical domain, in order to make health care affordable and accessible for everyone.
Reporting to the machine learning lead, you will be part of a collaborative and growing AI team based in our central London office. You will be working alongside amazing scientists and engineers, and also interacting closely with experienced clinical staff to solve real problems. As a member of the ML/NLP team you will have opportunities to interface with the other teams and learn about data science, ontologies, advanced ML methods, and data engineering as well as specializing in the healthcare domain.
We have a team of the best people you’d ever hope to meet, all passionate about both healthcare and AI. We like people who are smart, creative and highly motivated to deliver the best possible service to the users of Babylon.
