About Us


Machine Learning Expert

At Reverb, we work with text — lots of text. Wordnik uses empirical methods to build recommendation systems and to extend and improve our Word Graph. We employ statistical, machine-learning, and deep-learning methods to exploit that prior knowledge for the modeling of text. We are a coding shop; developers in addition to researchers.

Primary Duties and Responsibilities

  • provide leadership on machine learning and statistical techniques
  • building 'learning to rank' models
  • building models that combine content, social, and personalization feature sets
  • document similarity search
  • user behavior analytics
  • topic modeling
  • auto-summarization
  • building well-engineered systems at scale

Desired Skills & Experience

  • machine learning — you are more than a 'user' of machine learning libraries, but understand and can articulate a variety of ML approaches)
  • software engineering, especially in working with large data
  • strong knowledge of statistics, information theory, and probability theory
  • computational linguistics

You'll Do Even Better With

  • a functional programming bias
  • experience or strong interest in Clojure or Scala (we are a Scala shop)
  • a proven track record in building open-source ML systems
