    * Flexible and resourceful â?? each project entails a different partner, different scope requirements and unique protocols. 
    * Team-Oriented, as you'll be working closely with our talented group of Flash experience engineers, directors, and project managers

    * Fully-loaded benefits plan:  401K with matching and fully-covered disability, life, health, and dental insurance
    * Casual dress. Come in a sweatshirt, jeans, whatever, like everyone else here.
    * Creative work environment. We are lucky to work in a place that is full of intelligent, talented and innovative folks. Although most hours the place is deathly quiet (we're a focused bunch), this is punctuated with hilarious outbursts and general merriment, which makes for a nice way to spend the day.
    * Free food. We have a stocked kitchen that pretty much guarantees you breakfast, snacks, lunch and snacks again.   Including a lifetime supply of Hershey's Minis, pudding, and Easy Mac� apples, carrots and yogurt, too.
    * Easy transportation. We're really close to the "L" and the Halsted (#8) bus line.Did we mention our yoga classes?  Three days a week, right in the office.  Heavily subsidized by Jellyvision and heavily optional, btw.

    Who are we?  In case you're wondering� 
     
    Jellyvision is a small (30-personish), creative, focused, and driven company, with a real vision for human-machine interface.  We tend to be known for the interactive entertainment properties that we have created, including the YOU DON'T KNOW JACK interactive series and the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire CD-ROM.  Our expertise, however, lies in interface design:  we create intelligent interfaces that simulate human conversation.  We call our form of interactivity the Interactive Conversation Interface, or â??iCi.â?  iCi allows machines to interact with individuals with such seamless pacing and awareness, such personality and wit, that it feels like a real person is just behind the machine.  iCi seemingly brings machines to life.  Please check out our web site, www.jellyvision.com, for more info and examples.
     
     
    Thanks for your time!

    Basic Requirements:

    We need a few good programmers who love to solve difficult problems. For you, the environment and programming language doesn't matter: Scala, Java, C, Lisp, Matlab, Python, JavaScript, Ruby, SQL, MapReduce, PIG, whatever! You learn a new language every day. (Okay, maybe every week.)

    This position requires you to interact directly with academic researchers and computer scientists who have innovative ideas and algorithms they want to implement to solve interesting problems. You will work collaboratively to find meaning from documents and published information that wasn't originally intended. So it's helpful, but not required, if you have exposure to other concepts such as Natural Language Processing (NLP), entity resolution and disambiguation, N-grams, Lucene, Cassandra, etc.

    MUST BE A U.S. CITIZEN, with ability/willingness to obtain DoD TS/SCI clearance.

    (Relocation assistance available)

    Responsibilities:

    You will be responsible for taking algorithms and ideas which might be described in white papers, pseudo-code, or running code, and then convert it to run in a cloud (Hadoop) environment. Eventually, the end goal is to enhance existing or create new visualizations for end-users to see the relationships and other extracted information brought forth.

    This is a highly dynamic, ever-changing research environment. If you want structure, designs, documentation, or CMMI, then don't bother applying! This job gives you the freedom to do whatever it takes to get it done, but we still need to deliver working, modular, reusable solutions. We still need to work smart!

    Preferred Qualifications:

    Experience with cloud environments is helpful, but you're smart enough to learn it on the job. It's just another programming paradigm - a day in the park.
