Element AI is one of the world’s largest applied artificial intelligence companies and one of Canada’s fastest growing startups.

We constantly push the frontier of knowledge, tackling the world's biggest and most interesting challenges in artificial intelligence, machine learning and operations research.

As a Content Researcher, the candidate will contribute to several long-form publications about the impact of AI on public and private systems.

This person should be able to identify and synthesize the definitive books on subjects looking at the intersection of technology and societal institutions and to clearly spot the important novel additions other groups are publishing today.

To do this, the incumbent will have access to a wide variety of research tools and subscriptions and will be free to navigate Element AI’s unique network of influential figures in the AI space.

We are also fortunate to have an organization full of intelligent folks who are always learning on their own, and so research at Element AI is as much about looking inside the company as it is about searching the world for the right source.

This Content Researcher will be expected to wade through the relevant material on a topic and develop an outline with the managing editor, complete with sources.

The candidate does not need to be experienced efficiently turning out polished prose, though that is a plus. The material will be far-

reaching, from understanding the technology itself, to its real applications in business and its impact on society and government.

The ideal candidate will have a strong background in history and economics, as well as a keen sense for the frameworks underlying the effects of industrial and technological change.
