Engineer (ML) - Golden - SF

Golden is looking for pragmatic, hungry and devastatingly curious hackers to join its mission in organizing the world’s knowledge. The company is in relative stealth right now, backed by tier A investors and is led up by serial entrepreneur Jude Gomila (ex founder of Heyzap, acquired for $45m 2016 / YC '09). We are looking for a multi disciplinary backend generalist with a knack for picking up new technologies and programming languages. As an early team member you would be working in a startup environment with high autonomy and a rapid development pace. Among other areas, the work will touch upon machine learning, NLP, data science, statistics, data structures and algorithms. We are building a system that spans many specializations within NLP: named-entity recognition and relation extraction; topic modeling and document clustering; textual entailment and question-answering; and detecting complexity, subjectivity, and vandalism. At the same time, work will also relate to the real world in making a product that people use and love.
