About the role

You are a jack-of-all-trades technical wizard with a diverse skill set, ranging from web UX to database design. You have a proven track record of building applications end-to-end at incredible velocity (in days, not weeks). You're naturally self-sufficient, often finding it easier to learn and implement new technologies yourself, instead of relying on others.

Whether you are hooking up a new API, building an end-to-end web stack, or designing a scalable architecture, each new technology brings you a unique reward: an improved understanding of the big picture and how the puzzle fits together.

But why are you so motivated to keep learning?

Because your biggest fear is that you will look back in 20 years, and realize you never made a difference. You were simply a tiny cog in a large machine, that will churn with or without you.

Due to your reputation as someone who gets things done, you've received a fair share of attractive offers over the years. But although money is important, it is not your primary motivator.

Instead, you feel compelled to build a product that will make a true impact on others. You want to work on the frontier of a new technology to solve a big problem in the real world. Because to you, meaningful work is no different than play. You crave adventure, excitement, and a journey into the unknown. Where a new day brings a new challenge knocking on your door.

You are a self starter who excels both independently and in a team. You dislike corporate structure and bureaucracy, and believe in a "best idea wins" culture. This is why you prefer a growth-oriented, flat, startup environment.

Additional Details:

  • You'll be joining as a founding engineer of an early-stage, VC-funded startup
  • We are predominantly remote, with occasional in-person meetings. We don't expect this to change in the near future
  • Work hours are flexible outside of core hours for meetings and collaboration
  • We ship fast. Really fast. We have the tendency to under-engineer in the name of speed
  • You will see the direct impact of your work on users days after shipping. Hopefully, this excites you
  • We don't like to micromanage, and prefer to provide freedom/autonomy. However, with great power, comes great responsibility :)


  • Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science or equivalent.
  • Portfolio of projects that have been implemented end-to-end and shipped to end-users.
  • Experience coding in Typescript, Python, and Java or C#.
  • Experience with at least 3 web frameworks (React, Django, etc.)
  • Experience building an IDE extension (Visual Studio, Intellij, etc.)
  • Experience working with observability software (i.e. Sentry, Datadog, etc.)
  • Strong fundamentals in Data Structures and Algorithms.
  • Experience working with cloud computing on AWS, GCP, or Azure.
  • Proficient with using the linux command line.
  • Strong interpersonal and communication skills working within a small team.
  • Startup experience is preferred, but not necessary.


  • You will be building a coding assistant IDE extension, including both the front-end using React and back-end using Typescript and Java.
  • Integration of deep learning APIs and models into local IDE extension and cloud server instances.
  • Deploy LLM models on cloud instances that scales to thousands of concurrent users using shell scripts, linux, and VM instances.
  • Write and deploy automated test cases for both the front and back-end.
  • Faciliate end-to-end user data management, data design, and data migrations.
  • Lots of thing not listed here, as requirements will continually change :)

If the thought of tackling the above by yourself does not intimidate you, we'd love to have a conversation!
