JOB DETAILS
 

Algorithms are at the heart of what we do here at SoundHound. In our mission to make audio-based searching as accurate, cost-effective, & scalable as text-based searching, we have re-invented many wheels, sometimes turning conventional search wisdom on it's head, & often solving problems that have never had scalable solutions before (such as our sing/hum based search engine). In this role, you'll be part of a small & highly talented team working on evolving our speech recognition technologies, & continuing to innovate at an industry-leading pace.

About You:

  • You love algorithms, & the challenge of writing scalable solutions to complex problems
  • You are a fast learner, with strong coding skills which enable you to meet aggressive deadlines while producing maintainable code
  • You enjoy being part of a small team & wearing multiple hats
  • You love working on open ended problems that have never been solved before

Responsibilities:

  • Lots of hands-on coding, testing, & scripting in a linux environment
  • Design & implement algorithmic solutions to non-trivial problems
  • Analyze & improve existing algorithmic solutions (making them faster & more accurate)
  • Learn new domains quickly when necessary

Requirements:

  • Experience writing code in a context where efficiency matters
  • Strong coding skills in C/C++
  • Deep grasp of algorithms & data-structures, with ability to innovate
  • Proficiency with one or more scripting languages
  • Strong command of Linux environment
  • BS/MS in Computer Science or equivalent

Nice to haves:

  • Experience with search/relevance algorithms
  • Exposure to Natural Language Processing & related concepts
  • Exposure to speech recognition related concepts
