About OpenAI

OpenAI is a non-profit artificial intelligence research company. Our mission is to build safe AI, and ensure AI's benefits are as widely and evenly distributed as possible.

In the short term, we're building on recent advances in AI research and working towards the next set of breakthroughs. Please direct press inquiries to Jack Clark at press@openai.com.


We're slowly building a tight-knit team and thoughtful, open culture. We believe that unreasonably great results can come from a small group working in concert. We seek to broadcast our work to the world, whether as papers, blog posts, code, open-source projects, talks, or tutorials.

We're hiring research engineers and scientists (both intern and full-time) based in San Francisco. For the foreseeable future, the group is focused on deep learning research. We're looking for people who have excelled as part of a research group or technical team previously, but we're flexible on the details — great research comes from mixing a variety of backgrounds and viewpoints.

Please feel free to apply if you're interested. Even if we don't have availability for you today, it'll be good to be in touch for the future.
