Our data team is seeking a Data Scientist with strong NLP skills.
Kobler has datasets with several hundred thousand articles, growing every day. We want to improve our understanding of this dataset. What are the articles about? How do we match articles to advertisers? Which topics are trending? What is the sentiment?
We are looking for someone who can be our specialist in NLP. Someone who wants to make a lot of experiments on text data to tweak that little extra performance from our models. Someone who really likes the science part of data science. This can be quite close to a research position, as long as you keep the commercial applications in mind.
As in most practical applications of data science, collecting the data and ensuring that ideas make it to production is a big part of the job. You will need to take ownership for delivering beyond just the analysis, but will also enjoy a strong team support and collaborative environment in achieving that.
Explore our text data to find new insights.
Code and validate changes on how we analyze text.
Help the team be up to date on the latest developments in NLP.
Be part of a collaborative environment. Be a discussion partner, do code reviews, transfer knowledge and help your colleagues succeed.
The key qualification we are looking for is strong skills in NLP.
As our datasets are currently in Norwegian and Swedish, you need to be able to understand those languages.
It is a plus (but not required) if you
Have experience with NLP in commercial applications.
Have experience with Apache Solr.
Are used to working in team based environments with version control and code reviews.
Have strong programming skills, in particular in Python.
Have experience with machine learning in production.
Are familiar with SQL.
Have experience with cloud based solutions (especially AWS).
Proficiency in other European languages is a plus, as we plan to expand in Europe.
