NLP Engineer

Nexxt Intelligence

  • Hybrid: Remote/Toronto

We are looking for an NLP Engineer to join our growing team to help build inca, a conversational AI platform for consumer research. Natural language processing is a keystone of our technology, and you will be working to solve difficult, open-ended problems with state-of-the-art machine learning R&D. Supported by our whole team and existing infrastructure, this position affords the opportunity to work across the spectrum of ideating, researching, experimenting, developing, validating, deploying, and monitoring models for a variety of challenging NLP problems.

What You’ll Be Working On:

You’ll be involved in all aspects of our NLP R&D, including extending our existing models and systems for modeling consumer discourse structures; generating pertinent follow-up questions; understanding and analyzing semi-structured data at scale; and clustering semi-structured through unsupervised and semi-supervised approaches. As we are treading new territory in market research, so too are our toolsets and capabilities evolving, and so we hope you will be excited and inspired as new challenges and goals arise.
