Our company is entering its 3rd year mastering the intricacies of conversational AI. We are looking for someone who is a third- or fourth-year university student who would like to carry out their internship requirements for a Colombian university graduation with us, and the internship would be paid. Now for specifics: some English skills would be useful, but not primary or even intermediate fluency, just a basic command is fine. We create news and ascertain people’s topical interests using AI at the moment for the project: lacartita.com, which is a news website. You would be in charge of anticipating trends and turning these into chats that we can deploy on our WhatsApp and SMS text-based platforms. We will train you in the following technologies so any familiarity would be appreciated but not expected:

  • Open AI 3.5 GPT Turbo
  • Google Sheets
  • Basic Python Scripts
  • Jupyter Notebooks
  • Any media interest would be greatly appreciated.


One of your responsibilities will be to use conversational AI tools to determine the naturalness of speech generated from our own models. Currently, FINIT LLC also manages the website lacartita.com and we are developing a model that speaks about news relevant to Colombian and Mexican audiences across the world. We currently have one such AI conversational model deployed here: Share on WhatsApp

As a team, we will focus on both English and Spanish conversational agents. You will learn how to fine tune your own models under the guidance of our two senior members. You will also learn how to curate the output of these models. You will learn about the concept of ‘Prompt Engineering’ and ‘Red Teaming’ which will help you move into the IT Sector, specifically, into Artificial Intelligence and UX Design.


You must be a 3rd or 4th year student at a university in Colombia, preferably, near or in Bogota. The idea is that most of our communication and meetings will be remote, so, please be in possession of a decent working computer. Additionally, you must in the fields sketched out below as artificial intelligence has somewhat changed the relevance of computer programming curriculum. In today’s new world of AI, subject matter experts who learn how to manipulate an AI are as important as a decent engineer.

Degree in the following fields is desired, but not necessarily required if other degrees and interests have been mastered during the university tenure of the candidate:

  • Philosophy
  • Linguistics
  • Psychology
  • Environmental Engineering
  • Media and Journalism
  • Economics or Finance

Presumably, if you can read through this post without too much difficulty then your interest and English should be aligned with our needs. Thank you.
