The CJK Dictionary Institute, Inc.
CHALLENGING POSITION FOR A GOOD PROGRAMMER
The The CJK Dictionary institute which specializes in the development of Chinese, Japanese, and Korean dictionary databases, has a fascinating opening for a competent programmer or software engineer interested in a challenging, responsible position.
The CJK Dictionary institute (CJKI) consists of a small group of researchers that specialize in CJK lexicography. The society is headed by Jack Halpern, editor-in-chief of the New Japanese-English Character Dictionary, and various other CJK dictionaries, which has become a standard reference work for studying Japanese.
The principal activity of the CJKI is the development and continuous expansion of a comprehensive database (DESK) that covers every aspect of how Chinese characters are used in CJK languages, including Cantonese. In addition, we offer a full range of professional consulting services on Chinese and Japanese linguistics and lexicography.
Why should you become a programmer at CJKI?
(This is a list of benefits rather than requirements.)
1. You will be working on R&D projects commissioned by the world’s leading corporations such as Microsoft, Google, AOL, Amazon, Yahoo!, etc. Many of the products that you will develop will be integrated into major consumer products (e.g. electronic dictionaries) and leading information systems (e.g. search engines and machine translation systems). You will acquire a rich professional experience and a tremendous amount of technical knowledge.
2. Dictionary compilation is a complex subject in its own rights. Computational lexicography is even more challenging. You often will encounter difficult yet intensely interesting programming problems. The work will require a analytical and creative mind. If you love working on tough problems and solving them in innovative ways, this job is ideal for you.
