Trooclick France is a company that specializes in the development of web
applications for the automatic processing of information. Our goal is to
create services that rebuild the user's trust in digital content. Up to
now, Web players were able to enhance the relevance of this content; we
go a step further and contribute to improve its reliability.

Trooclick was created in November 2012. Just a few months later, in
April 2013, it received financial support from the BPI (French public
investment bank) and in June 2013 the French government granted it the
Status of "Young Innovative Company" (JEI), recognizing its innovative
nature. It now counts twelve committed and passionate members in its
tight-knit team.

The company carries out R&D projects in search of technical solutions in
the Artificial Intelligence field. Due to its growth, Trooclick is now
looking for candidates for a 6 month internship for its office in Paris

training and you will help us design and build our information
extraction framework based on advanced NLP technologies.

You will turn ideas into well-documented and reliable linguistic
resources (both dictionaries and extraction rules) to ensure efficiency,
quality, performance and scalability.

A great team player, you will interact with other departments to
understand and fine tune specifications.
You will carry out unitary testing, create and maintain our test
validation corpus and participate in editing technical documents. All
developments will be done in English.
