About the role

Backed by Sequoia, Y-Combinator, and other top valley firms, our team is revolutionizing modern marketing and product experiences. Tavus is a leading AI synthetic media startup focused on making personalized video experiences scalable. Tavus uses artificial intelligence deepfake technology to generate realistic videos that perfectly imitate customer's gestures and voice- it's pretty stellar. Think Loom or Vidyard, but you can create thousands of hyper-personalized videos with the click of a button. Check it out for yourself 😎

We're looking for a Senior Backend Engineer who can take a leading role in developing the next generation of Tavus synthetic media services. From voice cloning to security- we have a wide array of missions that require cutting edge solutions. That's where you fit in- yes you. Our ideal partner-in-crime works well in startup environments, is comfortable wearing many helmets, and is always down to take calculated risks. We're moving fast and not looking for people to come along for the ride - we're looking for people to pave the path.

Please note that this is a fully remote position

Your Mission 🚀

  • Will build the next generation of Tavus synthetic media services
  • Own backend services across our platform
  • Be part of a small team of engineers building products that drive security, reliability and scalability
  • Set the bar at a company level for testable, observable, production-quality code
  • Improve our existing technical foundations, and influence our technical direction and strategy

About You

  • Self starter who is extremely hardworking, motivated, and most importantly, eager to learn
  • Deep experience working in Python and NodeJS
  • Intrinsic motivation and the drive to solve difficult problems without guidance
  • Ability to prioritize in a chaotic and ambiguous environment
  • Excellent interpersonal and communication skills
  • A love for building, especially novel product experiences

Additionally, having some of the following experiences may help you be successful in this position:

  • Machine Learning experience is a plus, but not required (anything related to GAN, audio or video synthesis or general ML)
  • Alternatively, audio/video engineering experience would be a plus
  • Experience refactoring code
  • Understanding of what makes bad code (anti-patterns, cyclomatic complexity, cognitive complexity, ...)
  • Has played Portal 1 and 2 (if not you'll need to play as part of onboarding 😄)

​Benefits

When you join Tavus, you're joining a family. Our work is driven by our team, and our success is shared by all. This remote position has a flexible work schedule (currently we're all fully remote!), unlimited PTO, competitive healthcare and gear stipends, as well as, of course, plenty of fun! Tavus will be a place for you to learn, directly drive impact, and be with a team you love.

Tavus is growing fast, and we'd like you to grow with us! Are you excited to get your hands dirty and join the digital marketing revolution? Drop your resume and we'll be in touch!

We are not looking for cultural fits, we are looking for culture creators. In fact, diversity is what drives our success – it's at the core of how we hire, communicate, and work. We are inclusive to all and combine our diverse backgrounds, skill sets, and thinking to build the best experiences for our clients.
