Understanding natural language is at the core of Megaputer’s software. Computational Linguists work for improvements in quality, classification, information extraction, and natural language understanding. You will work both on complex projects spanning a number disciplines within different fields. You will utilize a wide variety of skills, including natural language processing and understanding, syntax, semantics, ontology, program management, statistics, corpus linguistics, or any combination.
As a Computational Linguist, you will collaborate with developers and data analysis consultants to produce rule-based linguistic models, analyses, and applications that improve Megaputer’s ability to uncover key information from unstructured text.
