Voice Assistant Engineer Internship

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 60 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 13,000 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.

  • create blog posts, tutorials and videos about how you created the assistants and the cool skills you created with them
