Full Stack Engineer, Leverage Engineering

Applied AI - San Francisco

About the Team

We build infrastructure to enable OpenAI to scale. The software we build empowers the OpenAI team to work faster, smarter and more collaboratively.

About the Role

We are looking for a self-starter engineer who loves building new products in an iterative and fast-moving environment. In this role, you will build software from the ground up to solve critical bottlenecks internally, often by applying our large language models. 

This role is cross functional: you’ll interface directly with leaders across the company to identify critical bottlenecks and fix them, and you’ll collaborate with our research teams to learn how to apply our LLMs and share feedback.

 In this role, you will:

  • Own the full product development lifecycle for new internal infrastructure and product experiences end-to-end

  • Talk to internal stakeholders to understand their problems and design solutions to address them

  • Work with the research team to share relevant feedback and iterate on applying their latest models

  • Collaborate with a cross-functional team of engineers, researchers, product managers, designers, and operations folks to create cutting-edge products

Your background might look something like:

  • Relevant engineering experience at tech and product-driven companies

  • Former founder, or early engineer at a startup who built a product from scratch

  • Proficiency with JavaScript, React, and other web technologies

  • Proficiency with some backend language (we use Python)

  • Some experience with relational databases like Postgres/MySQL

  • Interest in AI/ML (direct experience not required)

  • Ability to move fast in an environment where things are sometimes loosely defined and you may have competing priorities or deadlines
