At Develop Diverse, our vision is to normalize diversity through inclusive communication, enabling companies to create inclusive cultures and increase diversity in the workplace. We provide companies with a software platform that finds potentially biased language and suggests inclusive alternatives, along with the hard data to back up these recommendations. While we currently focus primarily on job ads, we aim to extend our platform to all types of text and all communication channels, for companies and people alike. Our customers include Amazon, Vestas and Maersk Tankers.
We are innovative and fun people who are very open-minded and strive for growth! We are also an equal opportunity employer. Not only that, but celebrating diverse voices and perspectives is how we operate, so creating an inclusive workplace is our number one priority.
We are looking for a Head of Natural Language Processing (NLP) to join us as we innovate new machine learning and language processing techniques to detect subconscious bias in language. We’re based in Copenhagen, but remote is also OK.
We’re looking for someone senior to mid-level who has experience in machine learning, natural language processing, linguistics, as well as experience directing research efforts in a non-academic setting.
You will be expected to coordinate and direct projects to completion while keeping customer-readiness in mind. You will be working directly with our NLP researcher and software development team, exploring and innovating on procedures to best detect bias in text at-scale, and you will be guiding them all the way from experiment to production-ready product.
You believe normalizing diversity and empowering companies to be more inclusive is important, and you also share our key values of compassion, respect and integrity. At the same time, you would like to be an integral part of our team, contribute with your expertise, further develop your skills with us and make every effort to ensure that our mission is achieved.
You should also:
Have an accredited degree in Machine Learning, Computational Linguistics, or equivalent
Have 4 years experience applying machine learning techniques in a coding framework (eg Matlab or Python/Jupyter or C++ or equivalent)
Have 2 years experience applying machine learning/NLP in a non-academic setting
Have well-tested project management skills
Have a deep interest in transforming the theoretical into the practical
You will be reporting directly to our CTO.
