Alias-i is Hiring


Alias-i, the makers of the LingPipe suite of NLP tools, is hiring one or two developers to work on:

  • Natural language processing API development
  • Natural language processing application development
  • Enterprise architecture design and integration
  • User interface design and coding

We need one full time equivalent position devoted to our Phase II Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant from the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH). Our goal is a topic- and entity-faceted search engine making heavy use of query refinement and topic discovery, and suited to queries derived from high throughput lab experiments. We are collaborating with researchers at the Harvard University Medical School, who have real biology problems to solve.

We need part of a full time position devoted to improving our “source released” commercial product, LingPipe, a suite of Java NLP tools. This will involve expanding current packages as well as developing new functionality. A strong background in machine learning and statistical methods is a big plus. This project overlaps with the NIH project.

We need at least half of a full time equivalent position devoted to enterprise application development and integration. Our customers range from from small startups to the Fortune 500. In 2007, we have delivered product licenses and consulting for structured database deduplication, part-of-speech tagging, named entity extraction and database coreference, classification, and spell checking.

We’re located in a sunny loft office in Brooklyn, New York, just across the East River from downtown Manhattan, and convenient to public transportion. We are not considering full-time telecommuters.

If you’re interested, please send us an electronic copy of your resume, a cover note briefly explaining how your skills and interests match our requirements, and a description of your visa status for working in the United States.

No headhunters, please.
