You will have access to cutting-edge infrastructure, and resources to engineer your solutions to solve real-world problems. You will play a significant role in the development of novel hybrid AI solutions that will be used across different products that offer a unique experience to our users/clients in the B2B and B2G markets.

Responsibilities and Performance Objectives:
Research and Innovation: Stay up-to-date with the latest advancements in NLP and AI research, and actively contribute to the development of novel solutions and applications.
Machine learning algorithms: Apply machine learning and deep learning algorithms to solve NLP-related problems, including text classification, language modeling, and information retrieval.
NLP Model development: Develop, implement, and fine-tune NLP models, including but not limited to clustering, sentiment analysis, named entity recognition, topic modeling, and text summarisation.
Collaboration: Work closely with cross-functional teams, including software developers, product managers, and domain experts, to integrate NLP solutions into our products and services. Collaborate with the Tech Lead to design technical solutions for the AI team. 
Mentorship: Mentor Junior engineers regarding coding standards through code reviews and feedback sessions.

What you will be doing:
Working in a team of exceptional Data Scientists to work and innovate on ML-based capabilities in the space of disinformation and misinformation.
Take ownership of individual ML capabilities, working collaboratively with the Product team and Technical Programme Manager. Collaborate in the design phase and actively contribute to driving capabilities from conceptualization to final deliveryLead and mentor junior NLP engineers throughout the capability development. 
Will be responsible for the development of capability and cross collaboration with the product/OSINT teams.

Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in a numeric discipline (e.g., Statistics, Machine Learning, Computer Science, Engineering, Physics).
Strong analytical and problem-solving skills.  Good understanding of Data Structures (Hashmap, Graphs, Linked Lists). Also having a working knowledge of algorithms around these technologies (DP, Dijkstra, etc) 
Fluent in English
Good understanding and work experience with ML techniques like PCA, Clustering, Anomaly detection, etc.
Experience with delivering multiple ML models driven capabilities end-to-end Good experience in core NLP and text analytics tasks and application areas (e.g. Social network analysis, text classification, topic detection, information extraction, Named Entity recognition, entity resolution, Question-Answering, multilingual NLP, sentiment analysis, event detection, language modeling).Scientific expertise and real-world experience in Deep Learning, especially with hands-on experience in hyper-parameter tuning and deep construction/distribution (e.g., architecture design of transformers and other deep learning networks, attention mechanisms, parameter initialization, activation, normalization, and optimization) ideally with Pytorch or Tensorflow.
Working knowledge of productionising models and code: Git version control, unit tests
The ability to engage with business stakeholders (with excellent oral and written communication).
Ability to work independently and deliver high-quality results.
Experience with creating and working with APIs in any 1 (Django, Flask, FastAPI) or any steaming architecture.
