We are looking for an NLP Specialist who can focus on designing and creating systems that apply machine learning and information extraction techniques, with several applications, such as information retrieval, ontology management, and semantic-enabled technologies.
You will be designing and developing novel information retrieval functionalities, to improve the search of our products, and the experience of our users.
You will be working with environments such as SOLR, and you should be able to develop such prototypes either in Java or in Python.
You will bring active experience in Natural Language Processing into the organization. You will know the techniques to normalize texts, get texts out of PDFs and Xml files, identify the features and rules mechanisms that are necessary to capture the information desired from unstructured data.
You will bring new processes into the organization in order to improve (in cost and time-efficiency) the data annotation and information extraction processes. You will also have enough experience with knowledge modelling and semantic technologies to address the complexities of translating unstructured information into structured form.
You will actively contribute to product strategy by identifying and ingesting new technical capabilities. Using the available base data, you will actively promote new ideas of using this data to enhance our competitive offerings. It is a definite advantage if you have the vision and skill to use visualization tools to present extracted data to stakeholders or end-users.
You will analyze extracted information to drive such information retrieval, inferencing and advanced data analytics. Data analytics can also be used to identify research trends, or drive decisions for end users.
You will serve as one of the NLP experts in the wider Content and Innovation team. Actively contributing to a culture of product and process innovation, you will be a trusted resource in new development projects.
You may coach other team members on a need basis and his or her expertise may be called on for specific areas that he or she is more specialized in. Also to external partners, you may represent the NLP team.
