DeepMind is hiring someone to write speeches for its senior leadership team and “articulate the company’s mission and impact on the world.”
The artificial intelligence lab, often regarded as the most advanced AI company in the world, was acquired by Google for a reported £400 million after being founded in London just a few years earlier.
Its mission is to “solve intelligence and use it to make the world a better place”. That involves some incredibly complex research that can be difficult to explain to a wide audience.
DeepMind cofounders Demis Hassabis and Mustafa Suleyman are renowned for giving empowering speeches around the world but it’s unclear who writes them. DeepMind did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The new speechwriter — who will fill a “Communications Manager & Speechwriter” role — must have a track record of “helping global high-profile figures use their platforms to advocate for their organisations’ missions,” according to the job listing.
The listing also states: “The successful candidate must demonstrate strong personal integrity and a firm commitment to ethics, and turn deep and complex insights into clear language and concepts that are inspirational and resonate with a wide variety of audiences.”
DeepMind is also hiring a science writer at the moment.
