About the Role
Our problems do not have easy solutions. We need the best and brightest to help us improve specialized forms of entity extraction, medical code prediction, and semi-supervised learning to automate more and more of what our customers need. In service of this goal, hospitals entrust us with extremely sensitive patient data that come directly from their EHR systems, meaning we have world-class datasets that cannot be found anywhere else.
As an NLP specialist on our Machine Learning team, you will develop state-of-the-art machine learning models and services that leverage large proprietary medical and clinical datasets. Unlike most companies where machine learning is bolted on to existing software systems, AKASA was started with machine learning at the core of all of our systems, meaning you can focus primarily on modeling, and your work will impact patients immediately.
AKASA is based in South San Francisco. As a company, we embraced remote work before COVID-19. We consider ourselves experts in working collaboratively wherever our team members reside.

What You'll Do
  • You will focus on using your expertise in natural language processing to:
  • Participate in developing state-of-art machine learning solutions to address large-scale healthcare problems
  • Write production-ready software with fast and efficient algorithms
  • Contribute to AKASA’s drive to be on the cutting edge of technology through publications and patents

  • Skills & Qualifications
  • 5+ years of work experience on NLP systems
  • Publications in top NLP/ML journals
  • Proficiency in one or more programming languages such as Python and C++
  • Knowledge of machine learning frameworks such as Tensorflow or Pytorch
  • Ability to solve complex problems across different systems
  • Desire to go above and beyond what's asked for

  • We are committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, gender, gender identity or expression, or veteran status. We are proud to be an equal opportunity workplace.
