Founded by an award winning expert on Natural Language Processing who helped bring Siri to life, Sentient Machines is an investor backed AI startup that is aiming to change how people communicate. Our mission, to empower human communication is our belief that AI, used to positively assist humans, is stronger than AI or humans working independently. Utilising AI to enable people to both learn faster and enhance their lives meaningfully is our passion.
We have created a bespoke Natural Language Understanding platform that seamlessly plugs into call centre systems to give the next-generation AI understanding to human communication.
Sentient Analytics looks at 100% of calls in real time, providing instant deep insights that can enhance the productivity and effectiveness of call agents by 70%, drive personalised training, and increase the efficiency of QA teams by 90%.
Sentient Automate, not only improves customer experience by resolving repetitive cases immediately, but it intelligently delegates any unresolved calls to skilled agents. This automation results in massive cost reduction and transforms customer experience by reducing waiting times to zero and enabling 24/7 availability for support lines.
WHAT WE OFFER
Our platform is built using Java and Scala, and Python wrapped up as services for our Machine Learning algorithms, with MongoDB at the backend, and Play framework and React.js at the frontend. We use google cloud in our development, docker, and Kubernetes. We use GitLab for collaboration and continuous integration. We are passionate about automating all our workflows and making testing and deployment as seamless as possible. We run weekly sprints and retros.
This is a rare opportunity to work with an AI company that is actually doing AI and has it in its core. There will be an opportunity for this role to move towards a more senior role as a CTO. As the first senior person in the team you will have the opportunity to make many decisions about the team practices, the stack, and even the UI.
We offer a market rate salary and equity in the company.
