Helping developers connect the world with magical conversational AI.
The mission of the VP Engineering is to help our CTO build and lead an engineering team where exceptional software engineers are developed, recruited, and empowered to do the best work of their careers.
Here are some real examples of the sort of work you might expect to do in this role:
Revamp Vocode’s RAG Pipeline
By now, incorporating a knowledge base as context to an LLM is ubiquitous, but we need to run document retrieval accurately and with as little impact to conversation latency as possible. The VP of Eng. would be tasked with owning this project end-to-end, including:
Work alongside flagship enterprise customers to optimize performance at scale
Vocode’s enterprise customers are deploying conversational AI into the frontlines of customer support, operations, and sales. You’d have spent time testing and optimizing these deployments, both in direct consultation with technical and commercial stakeholders on the client side, and internally where we can improve Vocode’s infrastructure.
Help figure out our approach to remote work
We generally believe that early stage startups naturally suit colocated teams because colocation reduces the overhead for information exchange, rapport-building, quick pairing and collaboration on work, etc. We’re also conscious that many people periodically prefer to work from home in bursts to prioritize productivity, and that a significant amount of talent is outside of our home base (the bay area). The VP Eng. would have been instrumental in shaping this conversation.
Vocode is building the future of voice interfaces on top of language models.
