Enterprise Demo Lead

Snips is hiring!

About

Snips is an AI-powered voice platform for connected devices. It enables makers and companies to add voice recognition and understanding to their products or services.

Created in 2013, the vision behind Snips has been to put an AI assistant in every device, making technology so intuitive that it disappears into the background. We are now over 70 people, with offices in Paris and New York.

What makes Snips unique is that everything runs locally on the device the user is speaking to, meaning no data ever gets sent to the cloud. This guarantees Privacy by Design and resilience to internet outages, making Snips the first ever voice technology to be GDPR compliant.

Our web platform was launched in June last year, and already has more than 15,000 developers who created over 24,000 assistants.

Snips is looking for passionate people who want to contribute to our vision to make technology disappear. More than a company, we see ourselves as a community that values purpose, inclusiveness, curiosity, grit and impact. We expect future Snipsters to be curious and want to learn continuously, helping each other solve the various problems they are working on.

What you will do

Snips is looking for an Enterprise Demo Lead to join our Client Solutions team in Paris.

Demos are the most important Sales tool. Your main responsibility will be to lead the management of all our demonstrators to help the Sales Team impress and catch new clients during meetings and international trade shows like the CES.
On top of the management and creative requirements, there will be a strong technical side to it, with the development of action code or hardware hacking to build new demos (CPU-based or voice commands on MCUs). You'll also update existing ones with new features or adding languages and providing fixes, working closely with the other tech and product teams to improve our product range.

Good to know

English is the official language of the company, as we have over 15 different nationalities, so don't worry if you don't speak French!

We are actively working to make Snips an inclusive environment and celebrate our diversity of gender identity and expression, ethnicity, and cultures.
On top of a competitive salary, we offer many perks including relocation assistance and visa sponsorships, laptops, maker kits, language classes, sports classes (spinning, yoga, boxing, climbing etc), full health insurance, transportion card and free lunches every day! We’re also family friendly and offer daycare sponsorship.

What we are looking for

  • Strong understanding of AI and the voice market
  • Experience with Python or JS
  • Love hacking devices and IoT to make Snips run on device
  • Must have a knack for UX, and VUI
  • A passion for rigorous work in a challenging environment
  • Git

Bonus:

  • Experience developing, testing and deploying applications on various hardware platforms: Raspberry Pi, Arduino, Linux, (mobile apps a bonus)
