Our Healthcare Speech Recognition products are award winning solutions that help Doctors, Physicians and Medical professionals to save time and therefore give greater care to their patients.

Position overview

Nuance is currently building a completely new product which combines our successful speech recognition technology with language understanding to take even more work off doctor’s shoulders. This product will be highly innovative and is intended to achieve something currently not av

ailable anywhere in the medical (or any other) market. The new software will be running in the cloud and needs to be highly scalable to support the anticipated user group – a significant percentage of medical professionals in the United States.

We are looking for somebody innovative, not afraid to try new things, curious and able to get things done quickly.

For that purpose, experience with TensorFlow or similar frameworks is a plus.


You will be working with an enthusiastic and highly skilled team in an international company. The team designing the new product is currently located in Vienna, Austria and Boston, USA. Ability to communicate clearly and succinctly both in written and spoken English is a must. Experience working with a distributed team is a plus.
