Job Description

This will involve working closely with our software engineers and guiding linguistic choices in our engineering (technical engineering skills not required).

Responsibilities Include: • Conduct in-depth research on industry-related, technical topics

• Research and analyse linguistic rules and knowledge management

• Analyse written content and copywriting to form up qualitative and quantitative reports and suggestions for improvement • Do quality checks and annotation of natural language data, proofreading content to ensure accuracy and fluency • Working in a start-up, you’ll have a chance to wear multiple hats and get exposed to other business and technical functions as well!

Requirements: • Excellent command of the English language, with a good grasp of modern slang and expressions • Ideally some experience in either of: copywriting, linguistics, psychology and/or data science • Strong attention to detail, committed, organised and able to work well with deadlines • An experimental mindset and ability to learn fast • Love working with a driven, fast-paced and passionate team (and an endless pantry of snacks)
