Speech Recognition Engineer

Snips is hiring!

About

Snips is a voice platform for connected devices. It enables makers and companies to add a voice assistant to their products via a simple web interface.

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 50 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, and already has more than 7000 developers who created over 17000 assistants.

We are an equal opportunity employer, and consider every profile equally. We are also family friendly, and welcome parents, young parents and future parents!
