Junior Level Data Scientist

Company Information

NeuroSoph is a startup information technology (IT) services firm based in Edmonton, CA. Our vision is to solve government problems using effective Artificial Intelligence (AI) solutions.  Currently, we are working on developing an intelligent form processing system for the government of Massachusetts. The intelligent forms system seeks to address major government pain points such as high volume of paper forms, high rate of human errors, and manual data entry into enterprise systems. We are well funded and have contracts that need to be fulfilled. We can provide security while maintaining the environment and attitude of a startup.

 

Additionally, automated forms processing is a technology that has been poorly implemented and not adapted in many government agencies and business processes. While e-forms work for the technology adept, the government has many constituents that are not tech-savvy and still needs to service them. Our goal is to offer governments an intelligent forms system that can be adapted to their needs. As a new company, we offer you the potential to grow with us.

 

NeuroSoph is looking for a Junior Level Data Scientist to expand its technology team.
