About the Role
As Senior Machine Learning Manager at Dialpad, you will be a key player in further developing our A.I. technology. You will build a team of ASR and NLU engineers in Kitchener, capable of training state of the art speech recognition models and solving innovative NLU problems to understand and extract insights from business telephone conversations. You will work in close partnership with our North American ML team and greatly augment our progress on entity-level sentiment analysis, abstractive summarization and a unique twist on intent classification. Our goal is to stand out as the leader in our space in terms of capturing, representing and making useful the knowledge exchanged in these conversations.
To tackle these problems, we will equip you with all the resources an ML team needs: massive amounts of proprietary data (millions of call recordings and transcripts, nearly half a million NLU labels), a mature label acquisition pipeline for your supervised ML models (including a team of 20 labelers) and an amazing engineering team to manage data availability and model deployment. All this so your team can focus on what you do best: building amazing models.

There is no idea too crazy and no task too small — we work together to make things we’re proud of.
