Job Description:
Senior Data Scientist - Speech
San Francisco · Full Time

Grabbing lunch with friends, attending a last-minute business meeting, or a joyful Thanksgiving dinner often turns into a painful experience for 400 million people with hearing loss. Lipreading stays the only affordable solution to follow daily group conversations, and it's not even a good one.

Job Description

We're looking for a maven in all-things speech (deep learning interest/experience is a bonus).
Most of ASR research is done in big companies. Sure, talent is around, but it's really only in less crowded space that your firefly brilliance can really shine. Hinton & al. can only confirm that.

What about getting ALSO a unique growth & impact of an early-stage startup?
Yes? drop everything else & read below.

Products where ASR is really the key component are 99% of the time made to:
*answer quick/superficial requests from lazy users (Siri, Google Now, Cortana, Echo)
*dealing with angry customers on the phone (all the IVRs)
*dictate emails for busy people (Nuance)

What if you could change 400M lives instead? Turn a lifetimes of frustration into a deep connection?

We are a mobile app using speech and speaker identification technologies to make conversations between deaf & hard-of-hearing people and hearing people possible.

At here, the CEO is the only hearing person in a family of deaf people, and the CTO is deaf and non-speaking. And we use our ASR-based product everyday to communicate. We're the round pegs here. And we care about the 400M people out there who struggle everyday to just have a social & professional life and that YOUR tech will help.
If it wasn't for Ava, the next best solution would take 10X time or 100X cost.

If this makes you excited, get in touch with us, especially if:

*You've been researching & working on ASR, NLP, acoustic modeling, and language models for several years, with a related degree or tons of projects.

*Experience in Deep Learning is a plus

*You're are ready to be a pioneer in the field,

*Of the persistent, yet open-minded and collaborative type: you reason by independent thinking first, but you know that together, we're stronger.

What you get:
Early-stage -> massive equity opportunity.
Competitive salary
Full health insurance
Work visa (E2) for French applicants
Help to relocate to the Bay Area if you need to.
