Deep Learning Engineer

Digital ads drive 108 billion phone calls to U.S. businesses… Surprisingly, the marketers who paid for those ads typically have zero insight into these customer interactions and conversions. As the market leader in call analytics and customer experience optimization, DialogTech provides marketers with an end-to-end call attribution and analytics platform. This enterprise-class solution delivers transparency and control over every conversation, so companies can optimize lead generation, map the full path to conversion, and increase sales conversions.

Thanks to smartphones, consumers are calling businesses to engage in conversations at record rates throughout every stage of the customer journey, and at DialogTech we are changing the world of voice communications for our customers. We enable our customers to better attribute, route, personalize, and handle their voice interactions throughout the marketing and sales processes.

We are looking for a highly-motivated, deep-learning expert to join our data science team. You will enjoy learning, pragmatic thinking, and critical reasoning. You would be a part of a team that is driving innovation within the company, working on rapid prototypes and research. DialogTech tracks more than 100 million web sessions a month, and processes tens of millions of phone calls per month. Our extensive network of integrations provide access to display ad networks as well as post-call information (revenue, call disposition, etc.) Our data sciences team is responsible for helping our customers find the signal in the noise: which marketing activities and site paths lead to the most valuable phone calls? What is the best predictor of a successful outcome on a call? Within an industry, what keywords lead to the best results for the customer and the business? You will have call recordings, transcriptions, and our full data catalog at your disposal, using advanced techniques in machine learning, AI, and data sciences to design, execute, and refine experiments in partnership with, and on behalf of, our customers -- some of the biggest and most well-known brand names.
