NLP Engineer at Unwrap.ai

A portfolio company of the AI2 Incubator

Who We Are

Unwrap.ai is on a mission to make every company more customer centric. We’re helping companies collect and process feedback more effectively from sources like Zendesk, App Store reviews, Reddit, and Twitter. We also build tools to help users feel heard by making it easier for them to submit feedback and follow relevant product improvements.

Our founders, two ex-Amazon Alexa Product Managers, were tired of manually sifting through customer reviews, support tickets, and bugs while working on Alexa. They understood the importance of listening to customers and prioritizing their requests effectively, but simply had too much feedback to parse through. So, Unwrap.ai was born to solve this problem. Specifically, at Unwrap we use Natural Language Processing to automatically cluster, tag, and analyze customer feedback to help product and engineering teams build what customers want. The ultimate goal is to make companies more customer centric and focus on the product improvements that matter most. We’re currently a team of 5, have a number of name-brand paying customers, and just recently raised a $3M seed round. We are backed by leading investors including the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence, Cercano Management, and Kevin O’Connor's ScOp VC (former founder and CEO of DoubleClick).

The Role

We are seeking a talented engineer who's passionate about NLP, and who has experience building real-world NLP features from the ground up. This is an applied role, so we value shipping features over research. You’ll own major customer-facing systems, train and fine-tune models, scale NLP systems to meet production requirements, and implement business logic to integrate with Unwrap’s product. In order to succeed in the role, you’ll need to understand customer needs, research new technical approaches, and have strong communication skills. The successful candidate will be involved in all parts of the company, but will focus primarily on designing and building our system’s ability to generate insights from written feedback.

Our NLP stack is Python. Data is structured and stored using MySQL. Experience in these technologies is strongly encouraged.

What You Get

  • Ground floor impact at a fast-growing seed-stage startup
  • Significant, potentially life-changing equity
  • Ability to rapidly advance your career alongside company growth
  • Collaborate with experienced teammates, entrepreneurs, and advisors
  • Competitive pay, benefits, and stock options commensurate with a seed-stage venture-backed company

About You

  • You’re an incredible engineer with experience building applied NLP applications, and have experience shipping real-world products.
  • You are excited about the prospect of making companies more customer-centric
  • You are excited about how Natural Language Processing has and will continue to transform our world
  • You bring an independent and entrepreneurial attitude. Evidence of previous entrepreneurial or start-up experience is a plus
  • You love building NLP, but also are able to contribute to other company activities like product roadmap creation and customer discovery
  • You are authorized to work in the United States without sponsorship

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past. For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
