Quora is a product where people share their knowledge through questions and answers, and most of it is in text. Maintaining and improving the quality of our content and product as we scale is critical for our success.
An important part of that is understanding the quality and structure of our existing content (e.g. along content relevance, authenticity, credibility, interestingness) using the textual content in questions, answers, biographies as well as other metadata that we have in the system (e.g. votes, question-topic relationships, user-expertise graphs, author history).
The resultant rich database of high quality corpus and data gives us a unique position to utilize Natural Language Processing (NLP) techniques to solve the various challenges we have in content ranking and information retrieval.
We are seeking an NLP Engineer to join our engineering team in Mountain View. The ideal candidate will have industry experience solving language-related problems using statistical methods on vast quantities of data.
