Instabase's vision hones in on intelligent automation. Just like the personal computer worked for individual persons, Instabase’s mission is to empower people to focus on the meaningful, productive parts of their jobs.
Innovators have a completely new set of building blocks which they can use to address existing processes, imagine new ones, and solve problems on a larger scale with Instabase. We provide tools and apps for processing documents, data extraction and classification, natural language processing, and optical character recognition; allowing creators, developers, and organizations to build complex business applications based on their needs. Our growing marketplace of pre-packaged business applications are being deployed in many industries, such as finance, logistics, healthcare, and many more.
We’ve secured funding from leading venture capital firms such as NEA, a16z, Greylock Partners, Index Ventures, and more. We are looking to grow into the next era of computing.
Come join our adventure!
As a software engineer focused on natural language processing, you will be designing and building systems that transform text into automated decisions for some of the largest companies in the world. Our platform processes everything from structured text (e.g., forms) to open-domain text (emails) to domain-constrained text (legal documents). As such, you will have to creatively apply a variety of methods depending on the nature of the problem.
You'll work in our Machine Intelligence team, a close-knit group of scientists and engineers who incubate new capabilities from whiteboard sketches all the way to finished apps on the Instabase platform. We take a product-centric approach to research & development, working closely with our customers to identify opportunities and putting as much care into product design as raw capability.
High Value Focus Areas
One or more of the following focus areas are particularly valuable for a candidate to have:
