Summary and Requirements

Much of our work on uncovering business insights behind each conversation on social media relies on Machine Learning and AI. We listen to millions of social media conversations and apply learning algorithms to siphon actionable conversations in real-time, classify spam and generalize from that evidence to bring actionable insights.

Machine learning at Airwoot involves deep scientific and engineering challenges. Today Machines aren't very good in understanding human languages. In addition to that social media with notoriously noisy text brings even more challenges to the equation with inherently different orthography, intentional message brevity producing ungrammatical structures with ill-formed words, phonetic substitutions, and new age emotional gestures.

In disseminating the language of ever evolving social media, the statistics of the data we observe shifts rapidly, the features of interests keep changing, and the scale of social often push us into large-scale distributed training algorithms. We expect you to have in-depth experience with Probabilistic Models, Supervised and Unsupervised Learning, Neural Networks, Support Vector Machines, and have demonstrated history of providing measurable results.

The ideal candidate should be a PhD. in Computer Science with relevant work in Machine Learning demonstrated in peer reviewed conferences or open source projects.
