NLP Machine Learning Engineer


Demystifying AI and Machine learning- are you up for the challenge?!

Interested in learning about the technology behind the world’s most intelligent autofill service- maybe you also have your eye on the future of voice activated AI?

Are you looking for the chance to influence the future of a NLP Machine Learning-centric Startup, love researching solutions to tricky user problems, quickly iterating and working with a dynamic and supportive team?

Well let me introduce you to Fillr- the world’s most intelligent autofill technology! 

Who are Fillr:

Located in the heart of Prahran this founder-lead scale up is booming.

Built from the ground-up to solve the issue of converting on mobile, Fillr is an ultra intelligent data exchange platform with a 95% + accuracy that is proven to be more accurate than Google/Apple’s autofill offerings.

What is ‘autofill as a service’ you might ask. ​Behind their simple façade, forms are deceptively complicated. A jumbled mess of code in a multitude of formats, they are constantly changing and updating. Fillr, already the world’s most accurate autofill, continues to improve through machine learning and internal benchmarking platforms and regression frameworks.

As you can imagine Mobile has become their primary means of connecting to the digital world — over the past 5 years mobile is increasingly the first screen for digital commerce. * Fun fact* 40 percent of e-retail traffic now comes from mobile phones. However, despite the exponential growth in mobile shopping, conversion rates continue to fall as customers continue to abandon their shopping carts during the checkout process. Seven out of 10 people stop short of completing their online purchases. 

Fillr believe that the key to addressing this is in tapping into technology innovations to improve customer experience and reduce significant frictions in mobile commerce, such as complicated checkout forms. And this technology needs to work on every app, every browser, every checkout page and every form.

Unlike other platforms, Fillr can be used anywhere regardless of a merchant being integrated with them and can be used for any transaction, *even those that don’t require payment!*

Benefits of Fillr:

Fillr delivers industry-leading 95% accuracy across the world’s top e-retailers, compared with Chrome and Safari’s 53% accuracy, and more than 500 percent increase in speed. While also being able to provide completely anonymised aggregated data on user gender, age, geography, and payment platform, and on form specifics such as number of fields on the form and number of fields entered/edited by users.

The Fillr user experience has been thoroughly tested and can be customized to integrate seamlessly with the existing UX of their clients applications. The default UI is based on Android and iOS native design standards and can be easily adapted to a company’s style and guidelines and can also be integrated into desktop browser extensions for all popular browsers.

As they grow they support more and more of the world. Currently, Fillr supports over 12+ languages including English, Russian, German, French, Italian, Korean, Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, Portuguese — more on the way!
