SoundHound AI believes every person should be able to interact naturally with the products around them–by simply talking.

We are looking for a native Tamil language speaker and software engineering werkstudent interested in creating user-friendly products using C++. You will learn and use the most advanced technologies in the fields of natural language processing (NLP), natural language understanding (NLU), natural language generation (NLG), speech technologies, and search technologies… all built in-house at SoundHound. Prior experience in these specialized fields is not required.

We are a highly collaborative, internationally dispersed team, and we would love to share how working at SoundHound during your time at university will create lasting value.
