Semantic Machines | Software Engineers and Machine Learning Engineers | Boston, MA and SF Bay Area, CA (Berkeley) | http://www.semanticmachines.com/careers/

Semantic Machines is developing technology to power the next generation of conversational artificial intelligence: AIs that you can actually have a conversation with. Think Google Assistant or Alexa or Siri, but without having to carefully craft commands like you're talking to a Bash shell.

Our team has built much of the core technology underlying Siri and Google Now, and our founders (including both the former Chief Speech Scientist for Siri and the head of UC Berkeley's Natural Language Processing group) have multiple >$100 million exits under their belt.

We're looking to hire a few talented software engineers and machine learning engineers to help build out technology, by expanding our core NLP infrastructure, data processing pipelines, neural net clusters, and backend services.

Experience with natural language processing systems is a plus, as is experience with the JVM (especially Scala), but we're mainly interested in passionate engineers who can learn quickly and work effectively in complex systems.

Please reach out to me directly or email info@semanticmachines.com. Thanks!

UC Berkeley | Software Engineer | Berkeley | Full-time, REMOTE, ONSITE, http://berkeley.edu

UC Berkeley is hiring a full-time software engineer to work on a DARPA-funded project to build next-generation methods for social science research [1]. The software engineer will join a team of scientists and engineers building Dallinger [2], an open-source platform that automates the full pipeline of crowd-sourced experimentation, from recruiting participants to managing the resultant data; think lab-on-a-chip or microfluidics, but with people. The position is a 2-year contract, renewable up to 3.5 years, and includes a comprehensive benefits package. The full job ad and instructions for applying can be found at http://bit.ly/2hCqGrj. Remote work is possible.

Our stack is Python, Flask, PostgreSQL, Redis, WebSockets, the SciPy stack, Jupyter notebooks, JavaScript, HTML, CSS, all on Heroku & AWS.

Iterable (https://iterable.com/) - San Francisco, CA - ONSITE

Come join Iterable. We're 36 people bringing the growth hacking tools that consumer internet companies like Google/Twitter/Facebook build internally to other large-scale companies. We aim to build the best user growth engine on the planet. It's crazy how messaging and email usage are changing, but the technology and capabilities haven't caught up to the 21st century.

Our team of hackers and thinkers is from quant finance/Twitter/Google/Yahoo/Zynga/Khan Academy/Palantir/CMU/MIT/UC Berkeley, (we built large parts of Twitter's growth systems). One of our top level goals is to build a uniquely fun and growth oriented company culture. Knowledge sharing in any capacity is highly valued here — are you interested in prediction markets or PGP encryption? Do you enjoy teaching posture techniques or purely functional data structures to others? We pair program, design together, and generally create a learn-and-teach environment here. This is an opportunity to join a super-fast growing startup, in a huge market and with a great team, while it's still early.

If you're interested in coming on board, you can help with some challenges we face:

  - Scale our messaging API
  - Design and write performant, beautiful, asynchronous interfaces
  - Write software to build machine learned user models
  - Make data visualizations for our email and user data
  - Design an immutable deployment infrastructure for our platform
Some aspects of our culture that make us different:

  - We are all very focused on self improvement
  - Our company has egalitarian and transparent values (work when you want, on what you want)
  - We are chill & empathetic people
  - The company is completely transparent
Technologies you'll work with:

  - Scala
  - Elasticsearch
  - Postgres
  - Redis
  - ES6
  - AngularJS
  - Play Framework
  - RabbitMQ
You'll get to work with us at our new office at 3rd & Harrison in San Francisco. If this sounds like an interesting and fun opportunity for you, please email us at aXRzYXVuaXhzeXN0ZW0raG5AaXRlcmFibGUuY29t or take a look at our open positions here: https://iterable.com/company/careers
