1% – 2% equity ownership $120k – $180k salary (dependent on experience & equity selection)

About the role:

As the first hire, you will become a foundational pillar to all of the company’s technology and play a critical role in shaping the future of the company. You will work closely with the founders and will be fully empowered to design and build core components of the software product, from conception to deployment. Additionally, you will provide technical support in early customer deployments and will play a crucial role in building out and leading a world-class engineering function over the months and years ahead.

Note: This is a full-time, on-site position in New York and we do not support visa applications. Applicants who do not meet these requirements will not be taken into consideration.

Key responsibilities:

Developing core technology: You will drive our innovation through design, build, and iteration of new product features, and help define key processes that enable fast build, launch, and scaling of the product. Defining product roadmap: You will work closely with our founding team and engage directly with customers to gather feedback and refine the technical vision for the company. Grow as a knowledge leader: You will stay at the forefront of developments in LLM capabilities and relevant technical domains (though research, reading & experimentation). Build an engineering function: You will play a critical role in recruiting new developers and have the opportunity to build and lead your own world-class engineering team.

The mindset:

You are an entrepreneurial self-starter, comfortable diving into technical problems where you may have limited prior knowledge. You enjoy a fast pace of development, iteration & testing (in line with ‘lean startup’ best practices) and are always looking to learn. You are a kind and thoughtful individual, excited to embrace a culture of openness, reflection, and learning.

Requirements

Must haves:

Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Engineering, or related field, or equivalent training or work experience. Proven experience as a full-stack engineer, ideally working on B2B SaaS products. You are able to work in-person in New York. Experience with Python, end-to-end software development, data structures & algorithms, and developing micro-services on cloud platforms (AWS, Azure, etc.)

Nice to have:

Experience in frontend engineering (ReactJS) Experience in developing and maintaining ML models and architecture (Sagemaker, Tensorflow, Azure ML)

Benefits

Competitive salary and stock options: 1% – 2% stock option / equity plan; $120k – $180k base salary. Competition benefits package: Medical, dental, vision insurance, paid time off, company holidays, and 401k matching. An unrivaled ‘day one’ opportunity: Founded in June 2023, went straight into Y Combinator, was one of the fastest companies to close their seed (from tier 1 investors) and is now on a mission to be the defining data infrastructure in enterprise use of LLMs. You’ll be embedded in the creation of a leading company from day one. A culture of learning, openness, and optimism: We’re a self-reflective team who speak openly around fears, sources of gratitude, and emotional well-being. We prioritize learning, experimentation, and aligning everyone’s work with their strengths to optimize for us all working in ‘flow states’. Thoughtfulness around diversity & inclusion: We promote diversity and provide equal opportunity for all employees with the ambition to build a company that represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and skills. In-person collaboration: We believe that our best work happens when we are in the same room, and are thus building an in-person company (New York), with some flexibility for remote working & travel.
