Ozora Research | Engineers, Linguists | Berkeley, CA | Part-Time | Onsite | Equity
My company, Ozora Research, is developing a next-generation suite of Natural Language Processing tools centered around sentence parsing. We spend our time thinking deeply about the structure of language and then building statistical models that capture the structure. The requirements are: a good background in mathematics and statistics, and a deep interest in language and linguistics. Programming skill is a huge plus, but not an absolute requirement.
I believe we are poised to make a huge dent in the world of NLP and linguistics. The field of automated parsing has been bogged down for the last 20 years because of its dependence on labelled training data (e.g the Penn Treebank). In my research I've discovered a way to circumvent that limitation, by building and evaluating sentence parsers using only a large amount of raw text data. I've spent the last couple of years validating the approach, and now that I'm confident it works, I'm looking to build up a team.
I have a nontraditional, minimalist and cockroachy business plan that won't appeal to everyone, but I can promise you that if I get rich you will also. I can also guarantee that you will get a ton of great experience that you would be tough to get at a big company. I want to especially encourage the following types of people to reach out:
- Recent grads in technical fields who want to break into the software engineering industry
- People who have had some success in mainstream software engineering careers, but are now bored and want to try something new
- People who want are thinking about going to graduate school in CS/ML/AI/NLP and want some experience doing research in that area
I'm happy to talk more about the specifics in person. Email me at daniel dot burfoot at gmail.

DrivenData Labs | Software Engineer (Python) With Focus On Data Applications | Berkeley, CA | FULL-TIME, ONSITE | http://drivendata.co
-- OVERVIEW --
DrivenData brings the transformative power of data science to organizations tackling the world's biggest challenges. We run online machine learning challenges with social impact, and we work directly with mission-driven organizations to drive change through machine intelligence and analytics.
We are looking for a talented software engineer who is interested in using their job to take on tough social challenges, while growing their data acumen and building real-world applications. As a core member of a small team your role will include managing code development, brainstorming approaches to engineering problems, working closely with data science and machine learning developers, and taking an open and constructive mindset to getting things done across multiple projects. You'll work directly with data scientists that started their careers as software engineers, bringing an experienced understanding of software processes alongside opportunities to learn new quant skills, tools, and ways of approaching data applications.
-- ROLE --
This is a software developer role ideal for a Python engineer with 3-5 years of professional experience who is interested in data (possibly looking to transition into data engineering or data science). Advanced proficiency in Python and comfort with Linux a necessity. Good opportunity to learn the quant skills necessary to work in the data space. No need to have a background in math or a CS degree, but the job will involve a lot of quantitative thinking so the applicant should not be afraid of math.
Working on a small team means doing a little bit of a lot of things. We're looking for somebody who can ask the right questions to figure out what is important, iterate between brainstorming together and working independently, and exercise sound engineering judgment to make reasonable decisions under conditions of ambiguity.
Doing client-facing work involves turning uncertainty into a reasonable path forward. As a team, we value arguments for how to proceed based on evidence, and we want somebody who will present their opinion and engage in a discussion around the best way forward.
Here are some of the things you'd be doing on an ordinary day:
- Internal software development: Maintain our Django codebase for drivendata.org, fix bugs, add features, safely refactor and maintain test coverage. Develop new internal tooling and improve on existing apps.
- Client-facing software development. Build a variety of applications, generally small green-field proofs of concept. Quickly learn and adopt new technologies on demand based on client needs; a typical engagement may include at least one data technology we haven't all worked with before (e.g. Elasticsearch, Apache Storm, Cassandra).
- Light DevOps Tasks
-- REQUIREMENTS --
Critical skills: Python (advanced), Linux (advanced), SQL (intermediate to advanced). Must be able to learn quickly by reading appropriate documentation in order to write clean, idiomatic code.
Nice to have: Experience using IaaS like Amazon AWS or PaaS like Heroku. Experience using Docker. Exposure to big data tools like Spark or Hadoop, or familiarity with the underlying ideas like MapReduce.
