Who we are.
Lilt makes it possible for every organization to communicate with their customers in the language of their choice affordably and at scale. The product combines human expertise and machine efficiency in a complete enterprise localization solution. Our mission is to make the world's information accessible to everyone, regardless of where they were born or which language they speak. We recruit the world's best human translators and equip them with our neural machine translation system, allowing them to translate faster and better than ever. Our technology is based on NLP and HCI research from Stanford and UC Berkeley. Lilt is backed by some of the world's leading investors including Sequoia, Intel Capital, Redpoint, Zetta, and XSeed Capital. Our customers include some of the largest Fortune 500 companies in the world who rely on Lilt every day to provide more personal customer experiences in 50+ languages. Our team is headquartered in San Francisco, with offices in Berlin, Dublin and Indianapolis. What you'll doLilt is a high-performance, large-scale language translation system. We invest in and prioritize workflow (i.e., usability and interface design) and backend AI systems. Since the translation workforce is distributed worldwide, there are interesting cloud engineering problems to solve. We have a strong preference for building our own backend technology, so you'll be implementing and working with the latest natural language processing (NLP) techniques and ideas. You'll develop our back-end services, which perform large- and small-scale data processing tasks including parsing, translation memory and terminological services, and other linguistic tasks. You will work on extraction of translatable content from customer files and the reassembly of those files in other languages. You will work with and contribute to an open source codebase in order to improve its collection of parsers and data processors.
