AI Researcher

Indigo Research is a applied AI research company. We work to take the latest technologies and apply them to industry and enterprise use-cases. This provides the funding necessary to do research that would in turn, improve the technology company’s technology.

Our clients include SaaS providers, banks, telecommunications companies, and other startups.

We do research in natural language processing, education technology, and general artificial intelligence.

WHAT IS AN AI RESEARCHER?

AI Research, well research, is the fundamental driving force behind technology improvement. We believe that innovation is best achieved through pure and applied research, and being an applied AI company, we focus on improving our AI technology not only to improve the products we draw revenue from, but also to publish and contribute to the totality of scientific knowledge.

The average AI Researcher workday will involve exploring new or obscure technologies and finding new ways to implement and apply them. Once a potential application is discovered, research plans are built and pitched to the team for a more democratic expression of ideas. We don't just research blindly; our current objectives are in the spaces of natural language processing, computer vision, AI Design, Assistive Technology, and Education Technology.

Since we’re a small company working with large industries, you’ll be expected to jump in on certain tasks from time to time. Don’t worry, we won’t ask you to make coffee unless you really want to. Coffee-making is sort of our CEO’s thing.

YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR:

  • Conducting research that applies AI tech to multiple domains.
  • Building research plans that scope the requirements and implementation plan for the project
  • Identifying and sourcing resources and personnel required in the conduction of the research plan

REQUIREMENTS FOR CRUSHING IT:

  • Comfortable with working alongside technology professionals to implement and conduct research
  • Familiar with writing research plans and papers
  • Perpetually curious. If you’ve broken something, fixed it, broken and fixed it again, then you have our attention.
  • Strong and independent woman...or man. We’re looking for a strong sense of autonomy and ownership of work. We’re not really particular with what you classify yourself as, as long as you’re not a robot out to kill us all.
  • Can pass the Turing test. We believe that the best researchers are those who can effectively communicate their ideas to others.

BENEFITS AND PERKS:

  • Our work hours are as flexible as non-linear models. Get it?
  • You’ll be expected to build next-generation technology. You can expect us to compensate you equivalently.
  • Free, normally single-origin coffee...unless you like instant 3-in-one. We’re flexible.

HOW TO APPLY:
