Nuance Communications - Healthcare
Nuance is a global Software organisation specialising in Speech Recognition that harnesses the power of A.I. and Machine Learning. Our Healthcare Speech Recognition products are award winning solutions that help Doctors, Physicians and Medical professionals to save time and therefore give greater care to their patients.
Nuance is currently building a completely new product which combines our successful speech recognition technology with language understanding to take even more work off doctor’s shoulders. This product will be highly innovative and is intended to achieve something currently not av
ailable anywhere in the medical (or any other) market. The new software will be running in the cloud and needs to be highly scalable to support the anticipated user group – a significant percentage of medical professionals in the United States.
The Principal Software Engineer we are looking for will be in a position to significantly influence the direction this new product is taking. We are looking for somebody innovative, not afraid to try new things, curious and able to get things done quickly. While a lot of experience developing software in a professional environment are required, we need a person who is able to learn new things quickly. Therefore, no specific programming language is required and it is assumed that the candidate will be able to pick up the specific toolset currently used inhouse on the go.
The focus of this position will be around the backend infrastructure of the new product – where the actual work gets done. Therefore previous experience in designing or working on cloud services or other highly scalable & reliable software is a plus. The product will probably provide neural network based functionality. For that purpose, experience with TensorFlow or similar frameworks is a plus.
You will be working with an enthusiastic and highly skilled team in an international company. The team designing the new product is currently located in Vienna, Austria and Boston, USA. Ability to communicate clearly and succinctly both in written and spoken English is a must. Experience working with a distributed team is a plus.
Once you are established within the Team there are options for Flexible & Home working upon agreement.
Skills and experience required.
