Golden is looking for pragmatic, hungry and devastatingly curious hackers to join its mission in organizing the world’s knowledge.

As an early team member you would be working in a startup environment with high autonomy and a rapid development pace. Among other areas, the work will touch upon machine learning, NLP, data science, statistics, data structures and algorithms. We are building a system that spans many specializations within NLP: named-entity recognition and relation extraction; topic modeling and document clustering; textual entailment and question-answering; and detecting complexity, subjectivity, and vandalism.
