VP of Engineering

Boston, MA


Luminoso is the best in the world at bringing to light what people are talking about.  With very little setup or maintenance, our clients can understand and react to feedback on top issues, efficiently route customers to resolve their issues faster, and guide customers searching for what they need.  Unlike other approaches, which require impractical amounts of data, time, and computational power, our common sense natural language technology teaches computers how to understand language like people do -- starting with thousands instead of billions of documents, in minutes instead of months, in up to 14 languages at once.  Luminoso is privately held with headquarters in Boston, MA.


As Luminoso is at our next stage of growth, we are looking for a technology leader that will be accountable for the software development, architecture and DevOps of our overall product portfolio. You will manage, mentor, and lead multiple teams of developers and be part of a dynamic environment that embraces collaboration, creativity, and provides you with an opportunity to help us scale and get to the next level.
