Temporary full-time position for Developer in Automated Phone Systems

The Speech Technology Group at Toshiba Research Europe Ltd (STG-CRL), in Cambridge UK, is looking for a talented individual for a temporary position, to contribute to our research infrastructure regarding Statistical Spoken Dialogue.

The lab in Cambridge, in collaboration with other Toshiba groups and speech laboratories in China and Japan, covers all aspects of speech technology, at many levels: from basic and fundamental research to industrial development. As part of our research at STG-CRL, we need to connect our automatic Spoken Dialogue System with an interface that will allow it to receive phone calls.

Primary duties will include setting up such an interface to handle calls between several phone lines and an automatic spoken dialogue system; setting up supporting infrastructure to interface with crowd-sourcing services; designing the web interface of our spoken dialogue system. Candidates should be highly motivated, team-oriented and should have the ability to work independently.

The Toshiba office is located in the Science Park of the university city of Cambridge. Summer activities such as punting on the river Cam, concerts in college chapels and picnic lunches provide fun during breaks from research.Candidates should have:

  • strong programming skills in Python, C, C++, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, MySQL
  • good knowledge of Linux operating system
  • prior experience with automated phone systems, preferably Asterisk

The Toshiba Cambridge Research Lab is located in the Science Park of the university city of Cambridge.

This position is full-time with a duration of 7 months.

To apply send your CV and a covering letter to:
stg-jobs@crl.toshiba.co.uk

Informal enquiries should be addressed to Prof. Yannis Stylianou (yannis.stylianou@crl.toshiba.co.uk)

First closing date for applications is 31 May 2018. The closing date will be updated until the post is filled.
