The €150m Centre is funded by Science Foundation Ireland and a wide range of industry and European Union partners. Insight’s research focus encompasses a broad range of data analytics technologies from machine learning, decision analytics and social network analysis to linked data, recommender systems and the sensor web. Together, with more than 220 partner companies, Insight researchers are solving critical challenges in the areas of Connected Health and the Discovery Economy.

The Project
Researchers at Insight have been developing state-of-the-art machine learning techniques for Natural Language Processing. These techniques have granted potential commercialisation opportunities in several sectors, particularly in traditionally conservative businesses. We are seeking people with a start-up mind-set to join our early-stage team developing a new softwareas-a-service, which will dramatically improve workload efficiencies in conventional pen-and-paper markets. With output focused on our early-adopter clients, there is a significant opportunity for people with the right interests, enthusiasm and software skills to become part of a new highgrowth company as the project develops.

The Role
We are seeking a backend web developer to design and develop a plug-in application for Microsoft Word that integrates with our AI software for analysing large corpora of written language documents. The developer will be responsible for backend application design and implementation of a portal, and integration of our software with our UI. The programmer will have a degree in computer science and have 3 years of experience in backend, cloud and web development.
