About the role

About Us  

Encord is a London-based startup building a comprehensive training data solution for computer vision AI applications. Our mission is to enable companies to unlock the power of AI while retaining 100% control of their data. In 2021 we raised $17m from top investors including CRV, Y Combinator Continuity, the Harvard Management Company, top industry executives, and other leading Bay Area investors.

Started by ex-computer scientists, physicists, and quants, we felt first hand how the lack of tools to prepare quality training data was impeding the progress of building practical AI. AI feels to us like what the early days of computing or the internet must have felt like, where the potential of the technology is clear, but the tools and processes surrounding it are terrible. We have devised a unique methodology for automating the tasks related to preparing quality training data, in effect turning the training data problem into a data science problem.

The Role

This is a unique opportunity for an ambitious, multi-talented individual to help to build and scale a superstar team, and have a massive impact on a hyper-growth business. The person will work closely alongside the co-founders and senior team to shape the direction and strategy of Encord’s hiring. The ideal candidate is willing to work hard, roll up their sleeves and take responsibility & ownership for the entire hiring funnel. You will be in for a fun ride!
