We do this by creating custom voice assistants that make it possible for companies to extend their brand in new and meaningful ways. Today, our customized voice AI solutions allow people to talk to phones, cars, smart speakers, mobile apps, coffee machines, and every other part of the emerging 'voice-first' world.

As a Technical Program Manager at SoundHound, you will manage our programs on the Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) Systems team.

  • Develop project requirements and negotiate with cross-team stakeholders
  • Ensure on-going tactical and strategic alignment between the ASR Systems team and company-wide initiatives and priorities
  • Maintain program management resources and documentation such as engineering roadmaps and Jira projects
  • Work closely with other TPMs to ensure continual process improvements

    We would love to hear from you if:

    • You have a passion to be part of a team to create a world-class AI system, working closely with engineering to overcome challenges inherent in machine learning solutions
    • You have an interest in linguistics and language processing
    • You have experience as a Technical Program Manager and systems level software development, understanding technical architecture issues and complexities
    • You are an experienced leader adept at managing processes and can communicate throughout all levels of the organization to establish credibility and accomplish tactical and strategic project, team, and company goals
    • You have a Bachelor's degree in CS/EE or equivalent experience

      We'd be especially excited if you have start-up experience or have worked on teams in the speech recognition or search technology space.

      Here at SoundHound, diversity, equity, and inclusion are key to who we are as a company. With a mission to build Voice AI for the world, creating a team with global perspectives is critical to our success.
