Job Description

Millions of blueprints, images, invoices, and other rich documents are processed through the Procore Construction Platform each day, but much of this content lacks traditional NLP resources and our solutions need to be robust to the informal tone, slang and typos often found in construction communication.  We’re seeking a world-class natural language processing expert to develop products and platforms, conduct and publish research, and engineer at scale. As a member of our AI team, you’ll help deliver the future of our next-generation insights, recommendations, and automated experience roadmaps, and to enable AI capabilities to everyone in construction on a global platform.

The construction vertical is ripe for technological innovation. Construction impacts the lives of nearly everyone in the world, and yet it’s one of the least digitized industries, not to mention one of the most dangerous. Procore is leading the market with our SaaS construction platform. We build for real people with real experiences, empowering Groundbreakers to develop and transform the communities where we all live.

This position will report to the Sr Director of Engineering - AI and has the opportunity to work remotely from a U.S., Canada or U.K. location, or in our Carpinteria, CA, New York, NY, or Austin, TX office. We’re looking for someone to join our team immediately.

What you’ll do:

  • Conduct research to advance the state-of-the-art in neural networks and NLP.

  • Utilize that research to develop and deploy scalable neural network models into production.

  • Collaborate with team members from other research and applied research teams working on a variety of deep learning and NLP problems.

  • Serve as the subject matter expert for NLP in the division.

What we’re looking for:

  • Currently has or is in the process of obtaining a PhD degree or postdoctoral assignment in Natural Language Processing or a related field.

  • Exceptional written and verbal communication skills.

  • Experience with developing modern NLP systems.

  • Experience working with few-shot / zero-shot learning systems.

  • Experience with Statistics, Natural Language Processing, ML platforms, and algorithms.

  • Experience with scripting and coding.

  • Nice to have: experienced in construction technologies and software, or adjacent verticals such as Real Estate, Oil and Gas, or Mining.
