Megagon Labs invites graduate students to apply for research and engineering internships. We are looking for motivated students to solve real-world problems at scale in Natural Language Processing, Machine Learning, Data Management, Data Integration, Human-Computer Interaction, and Intelligent Visual Analytics, and help us transform the future of work.

Interns at Megagon Labs will focus on high-impact projects while closely working with our Research Scientists as their mentors. They will participate in cutting-edge research for real-world and large-scale problems, aiming to publish papers at top-tier conferences. 

Megagon Labs’ research projects are strongly connected (but not limited) to research challenges involving Knowledge Bases/Graphs (representation, construction, expansion, curation, alignment, reasoning, and evaluation), Entity Matching, and Explainable and Trustful AI with Humans In The Loop. Our research explores data-driven and Knowledge-intensive approaches applied to different real-world downstream tasks related to the HR domain and others. Internships will be in person at our Mountain View office in Silicon Valley, California.

Megagon Labs is an innovation hub within the Recruit group, which includes and

Visa sponsorship is available.
