We are looking for a search relevance engineer to work with a team to improve a search based question answering platform. At Moveworks, we build search technology to answer enterprise users’ tech questions instantly, by combining modern information retrieval methodology with the latest advancement in natural language understanding. Our core Search product value is achieved through the capability of accurately retrieving, matching and ranking text snippets extracted from heterogeneous knowledge sources, as direct answers to users’ requests. You will play a critical role in boosting answer quality by meeting the challenges such as lexical gap, semantic text understanding, and data sparsity.

Above all, we’ve built an AI company that puts people first, which is why both Inc. and the San Francisco Business Times called Moveworks one of the Best Workplaces of 2021.

An Insider's view of Moveworks

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

We have started with an ethos of empowerment and ownership, and this applies to how employees manage their schedules and workload as well. This is a place where you set your boundaries and personal life needs, and your team respects and empowers you to do so.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Every Movester is readily available via collaboration tools to ensure that teams can effectively work together. We have weekly company syncs with updates from each department to provide a space for centralized communication. My personal favorite, we have whole-company trips to allow employees to strengthen cross-team bonds in a fun environment!

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Moveworks strikes a great balance between individual and company goals. ‘Do the best work of your career’ is a principle that largely influences it’s culture. From Day 1, my manager has put a strong emphasis on choosing projects that align with my interests while constantly identifying areas for growth that push me to be the best version of myself.

Saloni

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

There’s no shortage of passionate ideas at a startup, but bringing an idea to fruition fast needs deep critical conversations to validate different viewpoints. Conversation Engine sits in the center of our product, connects ML and system engineering, addresses technology gaps creatively, sharpens our marketing message and equips our sales team.

Jing

Technical Lead

What projects are you most excited about?

The project I’m most excited about is the continued growth of the SDR team and how invested the company is in our success. Understanding our current roadmap and how everyone is looking for us to scale it gets me excited to think about where we could be in the next 6 months.
