Senior Perl Developer

Join our team of machine learning and natural language processing professionals working on a modern and well tested Perl codebase! You will contribute to our machine learning framework and improve the models that power two of our main products: Extract! (CV parsing) and Jobfeed (job ad parsing).

Products you’ll be working on

Through our Extract! product we process millions of CVs and jobs every month – both as a SaaS solution and as an on-premise installation. It covers 17 languages and is engineered to deal with the diversity of candidate profiles and job ads. Jobfeed, our big data labor market tool, enables our clients from the HR and recruitment world to generate leads and develop their business.

Your responsibilities

You will drive the effort of improving our machine learning framework. On a daily basis you will work closely with our R&D engineers to develop new features, integrate new machine learning packages and improve our evaluation and testing tools. You will also collaborate with our DevOps team to improve the deployment and scalability of our parsing services. Being an Agile advocate you’ll take an active part in our code reviews, collaborate on design and implementation and work towards continuous integration and deployment. This is also a great opportunity to learn about complex machine learning and natural language processing systems.
