Location: Beijing, one of the most vibrant cities in the world. Come to experience the Chinese culture, explosive growth, great shopping and amazing food. The city is very international and easy to live in.
Do you want to change the way the world interacts with computers? Do you want to be part of a team that pushes the Natural User Experience to the next level? Do you dream that one day, our world will be populated by robots that will help to do our jobs? Do you want to challenge yourself by innovating in an area that is new to Microsoft yet is an important strategic bet? Do you want to make Microsoft products not only accessible, but highly-functional?
As both computational horsepower and storage capacity reach unprecedented levels, the human race is getting closer and closer to that dream of the natural user interface. Each day we are stepping closer toward being able to interact with computers the same way we interact with another human being. Speech Synthesis (Text-To-Speech) is a key part of that vision. The TTS team’s mission is to build the most human-sounding voices for as many languages in the world as possible, and to create world #1 TTS technology.
The TTS team is looking for a motivated, self-driven software development engineer/scientist to drive the development of our speech synthesis engines. Responsibilities include
- Advance the state of the art of TTS technology
- Improve the speech synthesis quality in terms of naturalness, expressiveness.
- Provides good guidance on core speech synthesis algorithm investigation.
- Work on collaborations with Microsoft Research
- Drive the speech synthesis technology roadmap for Microsoft
- MSc or PhD in CS/EE (with focus in one or more of Speech Applications) or equivalent experience.
- Minimum of 3 years experiences working in speech domain
- Effective communication skills and ability to work in a collaborative environment
- Full understanding of the tradeoffs for decisions made in speech synthesis
- Deep Understanding of current speech synthesis research in at least one area (ex: HMM Speech Synthesis, Guided Unit Selection, Voice Adaptation, Prosody Modeling etc.).
- Ability to use multiple orthogonal processes to diagnosis voice quality issues.
- Ability to reproduce high performance results in voice quality improvement on a consistent basis
- Ability to make major modifications speech tools and algorithms to support projects and substantial impact on product success
- Software development skills, aptitude for process design
- Ability to program in scripting languages
