🌟 About You

This role requires a strong background in software development, including experience in front-end technologies such as React, CSS, and Typescript, as well as back-end technologies such as databases, server-side frameworks, and APIs. Additionally you’ll:

  • Have 2+ years experience working as a full-stack software engineer, ideally in a start-up like environment where you have taken full ownership of projects from start to finish.
  • Be comfortable working in sprint cycles in a fast-paced environment and embody our cultural principles around outcome orientation and biasing towards action.
  • Be ambitious - we’re working on an incredibly hard problem and are looking for people who are energized by challenges.

Experience in any of the following is great to have but not required:

  • AI/ML especially in generative AI / LLMs.
  • CloudOps/DevOps - using tools like Terraform, Kubernetes, etc.
  • Data infrastructure - using tools like dbt, Airflow, Dagster, Snowflake, etc.
  • Working in highly regulated environments with rigorous data security requirements (healthcare, finance, government, etc).

We understand that not everyone will perfectly match the description above, and we are dedicated to maintaining an equal and diverse workplace. We embrace individuals who may not fit the traditional mold and encourage you to apply if you believe you would be a good fit for our values and culture. 😊
