Senior Machine Learning Engineer Xobni
About the Job:
Xobni is in the business of mining a user?s personal communications data (emails, SMS, call logs, etc.) to build the largest and most powerful personal address book ever imagined. Where most address books merely list contacts alphabetically, Xobni understands the relationship between people, their relevance to the user, and the implicit social graph that grows and morphs every day. Social graphs which are built through explicit action by a user (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter) are in fact much smaller, weaker, and noisier than the implicit graph that each person?s personal and business communications reveals.
Xobni is growing its team that finds new and innovative ways to mine insights from communications data. Some of the problems we?re working on include:
Maximizing search relevance within the personal address book
Developing an "identity graph" that spans millions of users and billions of relationships
Enabling "search pivots" such as time, location, and communication patterns.
Semantic identification and classification of emails-- for instance identifying those messages where a friend announces their email address has changed, or where a retailer is offering a deal of interest to the user
Predicting user behavior-- is this email likely to get ignored, skimmed, or consumed with interest
Reliably extracting phone numbers, addresses, and signature information from email
Topic Extraction, allowing a user to locate contacts by shared interests and past conversations
For computer scientists interested in applying their skills to a data problem bigger than web search, Xobni offers a fantastic opportunity.
