Intro

Founded circa 2012 in Barcelona, Typeform was founded by two designers: David Okuniev and Robert Muñoz. Their mission? Make online forms a little more human. Today, Typeform works on the future of online forms. Powering your brand’s interactions with beautifully designed, professional-looking online forms that people just love. Create forms, surveys, quizzes (and so much more) to grow your audience, improve just about anything, and validate (or invalidate) your best ideas.

The most important interaction on the web is the exchange of information between a brand and its audience. And that exchange usually happens through online forms. We believe that even a utility like online forms should be remarkable. Our customers say they get more answers from their audience and even the occasional compliment. Make every interaction count.

Typeform is a team of over 200 people representing 30 countries. We have offices in Barcelona, Spain and in San Francisco, United States. 

About the Role

We are looking for a Senior/Staff Machine Learning engineers, who will work with our Data Scientists and Data Engineers to productionize and scale models behind some of the key product features as well as models that power our marketing and customer success campaigns.

  • Sentiment analysis to help our customers better understand the responses they receive
  • Models to evolve our forms into conversational agents capable of handling bi-directional conversations and responding to goal-oriented requests that do not follow a traditional tree structure associated with forms or traditional chatbots
