Founding Engineer

New York, USA · Computer/Software

Founding Software Engineer

​​Imagine websites autonomously optimizing themselves to improve performance. You'd be building a system that teaches websites to evolve overtime to increase conversions, sales, and revenue. The platform you'd be building would be automatically performing the work it used to take dozens of engineers, designers, and data scientists to run. We’re starting with eCommerce (a gigantic market) and expanding from there.

It’s a huge vision and this is why we’re looking for the world’s best founding team to make it a reality. We are well funded, at a very early stage, so this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to join as a founding engineer and set the technical direction for the company.

(We’re based in NYC)


What you’ll achieve

As a founding engineer, your immediate focus will be to design, develop, test and maintain highly scalable and reliable systems that power our platform's features and functionalities. You’ll wear many hats and have a lot of autonomy. You will be a part of shaping and influencing the future of the team, product, and the company.


You will also

  • Architect and build the a large-scale database that explains what UI works and why

  • Implement AI models that predict the best improvements to websites

  • Architect and train LLMs

  • Implement a large-scale intelligence platform that feeds data into our AI models

  • Build a frontend (JS) experimentation framework that operates autonomously, at scale

  • Implement processes and practices to support the scaling of the development team

  • Develop and execute against both short and long-term roadmaps, making effective tradeoffs between business impact, user experience, and a high-quality technical foundation


What we believe in

  • No ego, extreme sincerity and integrity

  • We own what we do, in both good and bad times

  • We take calculated risks and have a bias for action

  • Constantly living on the edge of "Can we even pull this off?"


Who we’re looking for

  • A software craftsman - you know your sh*t around code, an overall rounded professional

  • 5+ years of full-stack experience is the guideline (not a deal breaker)

  • A degree or above in computer science, electrical engineering, math, or equivalent experience

  • Our tech stack is Python, JS, AWS (not a deal breaker)

  • AI enthusiast

Extra points:

  • Experience leading dev teams

  • Startup experience

  • Experience training/maintaining LLMs



  • Medical, dental, and vision coverage for you and your family

  • Unlimited PTO

  • The office is in midtown Manhattan

  • While we’re flexible on office/home days, we’re the founding team and real magic happens when we spend the majority of days together in the office

  • We’re backed by leading investors from NYC + SF + TLV
