Research Scientist, NLP
Founding Team | San Francisco, CA | Full Time
Tenor is attacking one of the biggest problems in healthcare today. Physicians are burned out and patients feel rushed or ignored due to the growing demand of administrative work on physician’s time. We are building personalized digital assistants for doctors to give them more time in their day, help them provide better care, put more money in their wallet and have a happier and healthier panel of patients.
Tenor leverages cutting edge voice-related technology including NLP, entity extraction/recognition, parsing and natural language search to enable physicians to do more of what they love and less of what they don’t all while providing incredible care.
The best part is that we are just getting started! We’re led by a repeat entrepreneur with a successful exit under his belt and we offer the opportunity to be a member of the founding team with commensurate levels of equity and responsibility. We are looking for motivated team-players who want to take the lead in building something special and have fun doing it.
