We are developing NLP components that cover a wide range of languages, from English and other Indo-European languages to Turkish, Arabic, Japanese and many more, and play a central role in search query processing, product description indexing, string normalization and vector embeddings for queries and products.
>
> You will use machine learning, tuned on terabytes of product and traffic data, to build or improve NLP technology that you will integrate with and evaluate, using techniques like A/B tests, in production. The approaches you choose for model architecture and training methods will balance business-defined performance indicators with the needs of millisecond response times. You will propose and explore publication-worthy innovation.
>
> You will build relationships with stakeholders and partner teams across multiple countries, analyze data for trends, track down the source and meaning of anomalies, select suitable rule-based or machine-learning based techniques and increment over improvements, closing the loop through data, model, application and customer feedback.
