Description:

Chenope will be hiring computational linguists in both permanent and special
purpose contractor positions (part-time and full time) in Edinburgh, Scotland
where we have a growing group of computational linguists. Remote work is
possible for EU and American citizens. 

If you join our team, you will work on analysing textual data in different
languages as part of a multi-faceted analysis product whose goal is to predict
behaviour related to organisations varying from Fortune 500 companies to
criminal organisations. The work is often cutting-edge in nature.

We are, unusually, a 100% employee-owned startup; we are  growing our business
based on actual paying customers, including a partnership with the
multi-billion dollar corporation Aon, and technology that is already both
patented and proven.

Desired Qualifications:
- Native speaker language competence in one or more of the following
languages:
- Russian
- Ukrainian, and other Slavic languages
- Japanese
- Arabic
- Spanish
- French
- University degree in Computational Linguistics or a related field.
Equivalent experience in the IC or military welcome. Additional research
and/or training in semantics, pragmatics and corpus linguistics preferred.
- Experience in ontology development, grammar engineering, and the ability to
abstract over language data.
- Proven ability to do original research in the field.
- A strong programming or math background is an advantage. Specific
programming competence: Python, possibly R, Java, Javascript
- Familiarity with language processing tools - for the languages you're
applying for.
- Intellectual curiosity critical, especially a "nose" for investigation.
- Comfortable with performing both intellectually complex and mundane tasks as
needed to advance the goals of the business; a certain amount of professional
maturity is required in a bootstrapped startup.
- Prior start-up experience preferred, but not required.

Even if you don't have all the qualifications listed above, but you think that
you have the potential for learning and development, you should still send us
your application. We are growing, and we have long memories.

IMPORTANT NOTE: 
We can only accept applications from citizen of the US, UK, EU, Canada,
Mexico, or others who have the legal right to work in either the UK or the US.
Unfortunately we cannot consider applicants without one of these statuses.

However, you needn't already be in one of our current locations to start off.
We will pay to relocate the right person within several months of successful
work at the company.

Even you are not currently available, please consider sending your application
so that we have it on file; our needs change, sometimes in unpredictable ways.

Interested candidates please send a CV and a brief letter of why you think we
should hire you to the application email provided below.
