At Papercup, we have a mission. We want to use the power of our AI translation technology to help content creators expand their audience reach internationally. Using a cutting-edge approach to speech processing, we're auto-translating the audio track on videos by generating a voice that sounds similar to the original speaker - but in different languages!
About the role
As a Machine Learning Engineer at Papercup, you will be part of a great team pushing the boundaries of neural text-to-speech and speech-to-speech translation systems. You will generate and pitch ideas to improve our production systems and/or research ideas that could lead to a publication at a major Machine Learning or Speech Technology conference.
You will own your projects during the whole research cycle, writing implementation code, running experiments, evaluating results, drawing conclusions. These will lead to prototypes and demos showcasing the capabilities of the proposed systems.
You will also contribute to maturing our research prototypes into fully-fledged production models as well as deploying them on our cloud infrastructure.
On the side, you will take part in our team-wide reading groups and present your work in team wide and company-wide sessions or on our engineering blog.
