Job Purpose: 

In recent years Myanmar as seen digitization at an incredible rate. A few years ago, having a mobile phone was a luxury few could afford. Today, a large part of the population in Myanmar use mobile phones on a daily basis. This rapid change has opened up countless opportunities for innovations for technology.

Along with it, the country has seen an unprecedented uptake of Facebook, with many people considering the social network synonym to the internet. Along with this uptake, Myanmar has seen a spread of hate speech and misinformation on the social network. 

To detect and effectively moderate instances of hate speech, social media companies, amongst other efforts, rely on Natural Language Processing (NLP) Algorithms that are able to bring suspicious content to the attention of human moderators. 

While developing such algorithms is a difficult task in any language, tackling it in Myanmar languages comes with its own unique challenges. Firstly, most NLP research is done in the english language, making it difficult to apply the state of the art to the local context.

  3. Push the envelope of Natural Language Processing in the Myanmar Languages

We are looking for an experienced data engineer to lead the development of the software tools that are crucial to bring this project to success.

Job Purpose:

In recent years Myanmar has seen digitization at an incredible rate. A few years ago, having a mobile phone was a luxury few could afford. Today, a large part of the population in Myanmar use mobile phones on a daily basis. This rapid change has opened up countless opportunities for innovations for technology.

Along with it, the country has seen an unprecedented uptake of Facebook, with many people considering the social network synonym to the internet. Along with this uptake, Myanmar has seen a spread of hate speech and misinformation on the social network.

To detect and effectively moderate instances of hate speech, social media companies, amongst other efforts, rely on Natural Language Processing (NLP) Algorithms that are able to bring suspicious content to the attention of human moderators.

While developing such algorithms is a difficult task in any language, tackling it in Myanmar languages comes with its own unique challenges. Firstly, most NLP research is done in the english language, making it difficult to apply the state of the art to the local context. Secondly, the lack of structured language and hate speech datasets is an impediment to training such algorithms.

KoeKoeTech is working hard to address these issues and push the envelope in Myanmar NLP. We are now looking for an experienced project manager to lead our project that has the following three main objectives:

  1. Work closely with local and international NGOs, legal experts and technology leaders to develop best practices for hate speech labelling based on international law
  2. Build a web platform to collect a dataset of hate speech suitable for NLP algorithm training
  3. Push the envelope of Natural Language Processing in the Myanmar Languages

We are currently expanding our cross functional project team to advance this challenging and impactful project.

  • Shape project strategy, prioritization and take a key role in project advancement
  • Lead recruitment efforts to ensure necessary know how is present on the team

  • Build and grow our partnerships with Civil Society Organizations, NGOs , researchers and professors from US and British world class universities, and tech & social media companies
  • Communicate project strategy and program progress to our partners and donors
  • Actively communicate our vision with potential partners and interested parties to advance our cause and secure necessary funding
Responsibilities
  • Ensure all the project teams work towards the project objectives
  • Ensure the project stays within budget and time frame and delivers quality deliverables
  • Ensure the project teams stay focused in a changing and uncertain environment
