About the role

About the role

Search and ranking are key components of the value that customers receive from the Dashworks platform. We are looking for an outstanding engineer with a deep background in search and information retrieval to help us roadmap and build out the next generation of search for Dashworks. Search engines have been around for many years, but new challenges are coming up in this era of SaaS, where company knowledge is produced, shared and consumed in more diverse ways than ever before.

As one of the first engineers to join our team, you'll have the opportunity to materially impact and scale not just the company's product but also the team and its culture. You'll work alongside exceptionally strong co-workers who learn quickly and ship quality work.

What you'll work on:

  • Architect and iterate on the core search infrastructure and solve challenging problems to increase its relevance, personalization, and scalability
  • Partner with the rest of AI and product team to identify new value that Dashworks platform can uniquely unlock for our customers
  • Research cutting-edge developments in information retrieval in academia and industry and leverage them to lead greenfield initiatives

You qualify if you have:

  • 2+ years of experience working on problems related to search, information retrieval, ranking, or relevance optimization
  • (Preferred) 1+ years of experience developing systems using deep learning based NLP (such as Transformer based embedding similarity models)

What we look for:

  • Willingness and comfort with owning and driving major initiatives independently
  • Curiosity and a love for your craft
  • An intuitive grasp for product-level thinking and how AI/IR can drive value to end-users
  • Strong communication skills

About Dashworks

We are on a mission to reinvent knowledge sharing and decision-making for work in the age of AI. Today, teams are drowning in a sea of information that is siloed across hundreds of SaaS apps (think Notion, Salesforce, Slack, Gmail ...).

Using Dashworks, teams transform how their employees find, discover, and learn from their company knowledge. Our platform connects with all the cloud apps used in a company and uses state-of-the-art NLP to power intelligent, personalized, and deep search across company documents, messages, comments, emails, code, tasks, meeting transcripts, and everything else.

Since launching the product in stealth a few months back, the product is already being used at major tech companies.

The team

Dashworks was started by Praty and Prasad, who met at Stanford while pursuing grad studies in deep learning. Our team brings experience from other foremost institutions like Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Carnegie Mellon, and IIT. We are thrilled to be backed by some of the world's best early-stage investors like Y Combinator, Soleio Curveo, and South Park Commons.
