About Scale AI

Scale accelerates the development of AI applications by helping machine learning teams generate high-quality ground truth data. Our advanced LiDAR, image, video and NLP annotation APIs allow machine learning teams at companies like OpenAI, Lyft, Pinterest, and Airbnb focus on building differentiated models vs. labeling data.

Job Description

The Data Labeling Linguist will be working to help train an AI system to demonstrate good behavior on a wide variety of tasks. The data the AI system will be trained on is critical -- thus we're looking for people who can show the models how to behave well on a variety of different tasks, as well as come up with new tasks to test the models with. We are looking to hire individuals that are able to start soon (within a few days or a week at most) and can work for 8 weeks.

The ideal candidates are:

        Native speakers of English
        Good at reading and writing English (including creative writing)
        Careful and attentive to detail
        Creative and able to draw on diverse sources of inspiration
        Good at critical thinking
        Available for at least 20 hours per week

Nice to haves:

        Prior experience in linguistics or in labeling very complex English reading comprehension tasks
        High SAT / ACT / LSAT or other standardized test scores (specifically reading and writing comprehension)
