Ready to use your Automatic Speech Recognition and Natural Language Processing skills to put science in the hands of real customers?  Founded at the Allen Institute for AI, our stealth startup is focused on making healthcare insurance easier for everyone.  The telephone remains the best way to get answers about health insurance for millions at doctors offices, hospitals, nursing homes, caregivers and patients themselves.  To field their questions, our health care system spends over a $1 billion in call center expense every day.  Each individual wastes hours on hold, punching through phone mazes and repeating basic information.  There has to be a more efficient way.  Patients deserve answers faster with less frustration, less hassle and lower cost.  Our stealth startup is determined to cut the cost and save time for each person in the healthcare value chain.  Join us in creating the healthcare information exchange of the future.  Let’s use science and engineering to advance the common good.  

We have made rapid progress in building prototypes, onboarding pilot customers and piquing investor interest. We are seeking an enthusiastic scientist to build ASR features for billers, nurses, patients and healthcare staff.   As an intern, you will build models, collect customer feedback and refine your algorithms. In this role, you will roll up your sleeves, get into the details, build and deploy models and hear customer feedback firsthand.  

Our co-founding team has over 60 years of experience and led engineering, science and product teams at Microsoft, Amazon, and startups.  We will provide guidance and mentorship as you iterate towards a perfect solution.  Additionally, you will be a part of the AI2 community of science and engineering experts.
