About the role

We're reimagining how humans and AI work together. An innovative user experience is at the core of what we do. As the lead frontend engineer, you will play a key role in defining and creating these tools for human-AI interaction. You will feel comfortable talking to users, prototyping and shipping product.

What does success look like?

  • You will ship code that is elegant to use and read, and you take ownership of it. You can be relied upon throughout its lifecycle.
  • You'll create components and design systems that scale
  • You'll have good taste for when we build something in house, and where existing tools are appropriate
  • You hold yourself and the rest of the team to a high bar and design experiences that are not just functional, but delightful to our users
  • You are a product leader who comes up with great initiatives and product ideas, and not just someone who takes a feature and make it "functional".
  • You communicate your thoughts and decisions clearly and proactively, and talk to users around the world constantly, knowing that their expectation may differ from your intuition.

Our software is constantly evolving, so we need engineers who can do the same. Our current stack is:

  • Javascript/Typescript Frontend using Next.js + Tailwind
  • Python backend
  • AWS for most of our infrastructure

You’ll have significant control over what gets added to and removed from this list in the next version of this job description.


We think that people with amazing ability can come from all sorts of backgrounds. You need to prove that you can ship quality code and understand how to scale applications, and grow into a leadership position within the company.

Remote first, with dedicated meet ups

There are pros and cons to working remotely vs in-person. We want the best of both worlds.

We were founded right as the world went into the Covid-19 lockdown and were birthed as a remote first company. We see many benefits to being remote and plan to be that way for the foreseeable future. We also believe that building strong culture and innovating require trust and facetime, so we want to be able to meet in person at least once a month.

As a result we will be fully remote for at least the next year but you must have the ability to travel to London at least once a month for a day or two.

Why you should join Humanloop

Almost every company could benefit from software that better understands language but building NLP systems today requires specialist expertise and unreasonable amounts of human annotated data. We're fixing that.

Our team have previously worked on some of the largest AI projects at Google, Microsoft and Amazon as well studied ML at UCL and Cambridge and we're backed by some of the world's top investors like Index Ventures and Y Combinator.

If you like

  • solving hard technical problems at the forefront of AI
  • building fast and shipping often
  • minimal process and lots of autonomy

Then you'll fit right in!
