Software Engineer - Speech, Search & AI SoundHound
After amassing a global user community nearly 150 million strong, a large portfolio of core technologies and award winning products, we decided that is not enough. So, we put together a team of some of the smartest people in the world to work on the next big thing.
You will be joining this team to work on a stealth and disruptive platform that will change the way we interact with computers and information.
At SoundHound we value creativity, innovation, hard work, open communication and fast iteration, which allow us to act on valuable feedback from employees and users alike. SoundHound's culture is one of impromptu coffee breaks, less-impromptu fitness sessions, group lunches, and weekly happy hours. In vino veritas!
We offer a competitive salary, SoundHound stock options, unique camaraderie, catered lunches, and even occasional visits from recording artists (recently including Seal). SoundHound is an equal opportunity employer.
