Julie is the ontologist and lead curator for the Google Cloud Jobs API. Her responsibilities include building and maintaining the data models (ontologies) for occupations, abilities, and education. The ontologies help to standardize the language used by job seekers and in employer job postings in order to improve the hiring process. These ontologies also facilitate our machine learning efforts in understanding how job titles and skills relate to one another, and how to best match jobseeker’s preferences after taking into consideration factors such as job content, location, and seniority.
