Data Scientist - Annotation Contract (3+ years exp, London UK)

Who are we?
Our mission is to scale intelligence to serve humanity. We’re training and deploying frontier models for developers and enterprises who are building AI systems to power magical experiences like semantic search, RAG, and agents. We believe that our work is instrumental to the widespread adoption of AI.

We obsess over what we build. Each one of us is responsible for contributing to increasing the capabilities of our models and the value they drive for our customers. We like to work hard and move fast to do what’s best for our customers.

Cohere is a team of researchers, engineers, designers, and more, who are passionate about their craft. Each person is the one of the best in the world at what they do. We believe that a diverse range of perspectives is a requirement for building great products.

Join us on our mission and shape the future!

Why this role?
At Cohere, we’re obsessed with language and technology— we believe we need great writers and developers and always will. We also believe that remarkable talent, enthusiasm, and creative thinking add up to great work. We’re looking for someone with superb python and data science skills to join our team and help shape the future of language technology. The most successful candidate will be a quick learner who is excited to train our model by working on a wide variety of writing and code based prompts.

We are on a mission to build machines that understand the world and make them safely accessible to all. Data quality is foundational to this process. Machines (or Large Language Models to be exact) learn in similar ways to humans - by way of feedback. 

Our AI Data Trainers ensure that all samples fed to our AI model are well-written, technically sound and useful to the end user. By creating content that data scientists would find useful, working python, or on use cases you will be an essential component of improving our Large Language Model’s performance for iterations to come, thus having a lasting impact on Cohere’s tech.
