About the role


We're looking for a founding engineer to work with us on cutting-edge problems at the intersection of security and AI.

You'll be part of the founding team and define the trajectory of the company.


We're all technical, and love shipping fast. You'll have the independence and autonomy to design and own systems end-to-end. We have customers and are generating revenue, so you'll also have the option to flex into a wide range of problems, if you are interested in it! We only care about customers, product, and our team -- everything else is noise.


  • Build and scale backend systems and infrastructure
  • Build and own systems on our platform end to end.
  • Working on cutting-edge LLM security problems including multimodal threats, red teaming, and data loss prevention.

About you

  • High agency
  • Energized about going from 0 to 1
  • Excited to pick up new skills and apply them quickly
  • Interested in AI or security

Bonus points (not required)

  • Experience with full-stack web app development
  • Experience with Kubernetes, cloud deployments, and DevOps
  • Enjoys red-teaming & breaking LLMs
  • Has worked at high-growth startups before
