02 Jun 2017 Job Opportunity: Cogent Labs

We are Cogent Labs (cogent.co.jp), a Tokyo based artificial intelligence startup company. Cogent Labs bridges the gap between newly published academic research and real-world business solutions by leveraging expertise across many domains, including time series forecasting, information extraction, natural language and speech processing, image classification, and reinforcement learning.

Our mission is to create accessible and intuitive AI solutions which solve real problems. Exploring and implementing new academic research is only one piece of the equation - it is critical to understand the actual needs and potential for AI in the consumer and enterprise market, and to develop scalable application infrastructure to transform that research into tools for everyday use.

Having recently raised our Series A (https://s3-ap-northeast-1.amazonaws.com/cogentlab/CogentLabs_PressReleaseNews_20170228.pdf) we are aiming to double our team from currently 25 to about 50 people within the next year and are looking for skilled researchers to join our team. The official job description and link to apply can be found here: https://cogentlabs.breezy.hr/p/c1d2371b679a

Currently our research team consists of a wide mix of people from physics, statistics, neuroscience and deep learning, and we are also planning to keep hiring people from a broad range of backgrounds. So while experience with AI and deep learning is definitely a plus, it’s absolutely not necessary.

The working environment is very casual and extremely international (more than 10 different nationalities), and our office is in a great location in Daikanyama (just one stop from Shibuya).
