As an early research engineer, you’ll help define Abridge’s research and engineering culture. In this role, you will be working on exciting NLP challenges using our large annotated proprietary healthcare datasets.

You will:
- Perform data preprocessing, define performance measures based on development and test sets
- Work iteratively to build deep learning models
- Develop production-ready software with fast and efficient algorithms

Ideally, your background includes:
- MS in Computer Science or a related quantitative field, with 3+ years of machine learning related work; or a Ph.D. in Computer Science or related quantitative field
- Strong computer science fundamentals. Debugging skills and knowledge of algorithms are both important. You should be able to dig into and understand significant code bases and produce well-designed software. You should be able to study and understand new libraries and frameworks and integrate them into your work.
- Strong coding ability. While theoretical knowledge of algorithms is appreciated, it is also important that you're able to write clean, efficient code in C++ (using templates, STL, and OOP) or Python (with a focus on testability and using OOP) on a Linux platform.
- Strong software engineering skills. You should have a strong sense of how to distill application requirements into clean and testable APIs and enjoy the craft of writing good software.
- Previous experience with machine learning. Familiarity with machine learning algorithms and the math needed to discuss/develop them.

Bonus points if you also have:
- Previous experience with healthcare data/AI/Machine learning projects
