Software Engineer – Soundhound (Czech speaking – Full remote)

Job Description

SoundHound Inc. builds voice AI products that make it easier for people to engage with the world around them. We do this by creating custom voice assistants that allow companies to extend their brand in new and meaningful ways. Today, our customized voice AI solutions allow people to talk to phones, cars, smart speakers, mobile apps, coffee machines, and every other part of the emerging ‘voice-first’ world.
This role requires native-level proficiency speaking Czech, and an interest in NLU (Natural Language Understanding) but does not require prior NLU experience. You will be learning and using the most advanced technologies in the fields of Natural Language Understanding, Speech, Search, and AI, all built in-house here at SoundHound, Inc. We’ve worked hard to build a platform that enables individual developers to implement deep natural language user experiences very rapidly, often within days. You’ll be part of a highly collaborative internationally dispersed team and your work will directly contribute to a revolution in the way people interact with the devices around them: by speaking naturally.

In this role you will:

  • Simultaneously leverage your coding skills and your knowledge of the Czech language
  • Develop Conversational AI leveraging a powerful domain-oriented development paradigm
  • Implement and scale core code base, solving both algorithmic and design challenges
  • Write code that interacts with third-party API’s
  • Collaborate closely with engineers working on NLU for other languages
Complexity of the role

About Soundhound

In 2005, a group of Stanford graduates embarked on a journey, fueled by a vision: Within their lifetimes, we would be talking to products just as we do other people. Inspired to make their vision a reality, our company was born with a simple and powerful mission: Add voice AI to everything.

SoundHound music discovery
The company’s first chapter saw a more immediate opportunity: Improve music recognition using an innovative approach to turning sound into meaning. Within a year, Midomi was formed. In 2009, the music discovery app was rebranded as SoundHound. By 2016, it received over 315 million downloads worldwide and continues to thrive as a top-ranked music app today.

Houndify Voice AI platform
For over 10 years, Keyvan and his team worked in stealth on a fundamentally new technology—one that had the potential to revolutionize human-to-computer voice interaction. Up until then, all voice interactions relied on speech-to-text and then text-to-meaning. Our founders knew that for a true voice engine to flourish, it needed to understand speech directly, just like humans do.

In 2015, we introduced the Houndify Voice AI platform. With breakthrough Speech-to-Meaning® and Deep Meaning Understanding™ technologies as its foundation, Houndify offered unparalleled voice interaction, and its capabilities are still unmatched to this day.
