Job(岗位): Manager, Software Engineering, Linguistics

Type(岗位类型): Engineering

Date(发布日期): Before 2021-12-14


The Facebook Reality Labs AR/VR team at Facebook is helping more people around the world come together and connect through world-class Augmented, Mixed, and Virtual Reality hardware and software. With global departments dedicated to AR/VR research, machine perception, graphics, operating systems, social interaction, and more, we are committed to driving the state-of-the-art forward through relentless innovation. AR and VR’s potential to change the world is immense.

As a Linguistic Engineering (LE) Manager, you will focus on helping deliver datasets, models, and knowledge that power the ML systems across all components in the voice assistant product, such as ASR/TTS, NLU, NLG, Dialog, Reasoning, and the Knowledge Graph. The LE Manager plays a role in managing the complex data and language requirements from the cross-functional teams that work on these components, and translating those into LE workstreams. The LE Manager helps the team deliver datasets, consistent models and representations across languages and areas, as well as data infrastructure that powers the voice assistant product.

The ideal candidate has strong technical, analytical, and collaboration skills with experience in building datasets for ML applications. Experience as an ML practitioner is useful but not required as the role focuses on the datasets and provides an opportunity to interface and work directly with ML teams as part of the greater voice assistant organization.

Experience with data tools, pipelines, and analytics is desired for this role. The ideal candidate will have an interest in NLP and/or conversational AI systems and being at the cutting edge of their development. A plus is experience in any subfield of computational linguistics, though that is not specifically a requirement for the role.
