Today, our customized voice AI solutions allow people to talk to phones, cars, smart speakers, mobile apps, coffee machines, and every other part of the emerging ‘voice-first’ world.

You would join a team developing language models, which form part of our state-of-the-art Speech to Meaning technology. The models that you build would contribute to the experience provided by various customers, like Hyundai, Stellantis, Daimler, Mastercard, etc. Our team’s work is integral to SoundHound’s Voice AI solution. Your work will have a big impact on the Product & Business.

In this role you will:

  • Build statistical language models for various languages
  • Work on various natural language processing problems like language modeling, topic modeling, data augmentation, data normalization, spelling correction etc

We’d be especially excited if you have experience in any combination of machine learning, natural language processing, or applied statistics. Extra attention will be given to candidates that have worked with distributed/parallel computing infrastructure, especially MapReduce and Spark. If you are fluent in a non-English language, that is a plus.
