About the role

Compose AI is a fast growing startup backed by YCombinator that just recently closed a $2.1mil seed round led by David Sacks and Craft Ventures, as well as investments from Sequoia and cofounders from Kayak, Hubspot, Vercel, and Honey. We’re disrupting the way people type by leveraging artificial intelligence.

Job Description

We are looking for an experienced frontend-stack engineer to help our team create a stunning experience across all major websites as well as expand our Chrome Extension to more websites.

Why you should join

Our mission at is to amplify human potential by bringing intelligence to human-computer communication. This is a hard problem but we believe deeply in the mission and lean in to audacious goals.

Our core product is a freemium Chrome extension that helps automate your writing using AI. You know how Gmail autocompletes your sentences for you? It's like that, except it's available everywhere, across all of your devices and tools. So whether you're writing an email in Superhuman, replying to your customers on intercom, or writing documentation on Notion, is there. We are currently in a private beta with over 6,000 signups. We created our own proprietary AI model that is real-time, personalized, and adapts to wherever you're typing. Wilson and I are ex-Amazon and Landon is ex-Google. If you believe AI is going to change the way we live and the way we write, then we would love to talk to you.
