At ProWritingAid, our mission is to help people become better writers so they can share their ideas, stories, and knowledge.
Words shape the world, and we have a unique opportunity to help shape and improve those words. If you love inspiring, educating, and helping people, then this is the right place for you. You'll not only be helping our users, but also the millions of readers inspired by their words.
We're a 100% remote team spread across more than 10 countries, brought together by a love of language. By focusing on sustainable growth and the happiness of our team, we've been in business for over 8 years and are still growing strongly without any VC funding.
ProWritingAid's NLP team is on the cutting edge of machine learning technology. The team is collaborative and curious, always looking for innovative ways to automate the editing process and help our community improve their writing skills.
You will work on:
Streamlining processes for our computational linguists, for example:
Integrating new libraries and tools, for example:
Tooling for DNN integration
Happiness We believe that the happier you are, the more productive you'll be. We optimize employee happiness through wellbeing coaching and stress-reducing workflow management, and know that everyone can be happy if they're doing the things that give them joy.
Opportunities to mentor and coach other team members Everyone has something to teach others. We actively encourage mentoring, pairing, and coaching. It's also a great way to get to know your colleagues better.
Confidence We believe that good decisions require different perspectives. We encourage everyone to contribute to the improvement of the product and company and provide a receptive and encouraging environment for feedback.
Remote/flexible working You can work from wherever (and whenever) you are happiest. The company is UK-registered, but we have employees in more than 10 countries.
Clever people/hard problems You will work with some of the most talented people in our industry. Language processing is one of the hardest problems in AI, so there are plenty of unsolved issues for you to get stuck into. Our projects require innovation and creativity—not your regular "done that, repeat" stuff.
Make a difference You get to work on a real-world problem and make a positive impact on wordsmiths around the world. Our users love the product, but there’s still a lot we can do.
A small but agile company ProWritingAid is a fast-growing, yet nimble company. You'll have the opportunity to see your work delivered to our users and make a visible impact.
Competitive package We always pay you what your work is really worth (range depending on experience).
Annual meet up somewhere fun Every year we bring the full company together to plan, learn and play! Last time we met up in Granada, Spain and ate so much we had to have two seats on the plane home.
Up to 40 hours/week.
Please note that we are a fully remote company, so all applicants must be prepared to work independently from their own space.
