About the role

The role:

  • The product engineer should be able to add and update functionality to our web service. 
  • Defining protocol buffer APIs for browser-server and server-worker interactions.
  • Implementing the interactions by:
  • Writing good unit and integration tests for the backend.
  • Evaluating and adopting frameworks such as React or htmx for the frontend and building custom UIs.
  • Being scrappy and fast in development while not compromising good design principles.

Ideal background:

  • The ideal candidate will have strong experience with python, protocol buffers, javascript, and a frontend framework of their choice. They will have demonstrated experience in designing nontrivial UIs with HTML and javascript (e.g. a UI for free-form drawing, a web UI for a game, etc).

What we offer:

  • The opportunity to join the founding team and play a critical and expanding role in shaping the company.
  • The opportunity to work on cutting-edge AI with leading researchers with an application and productization focus.
