San Francisco, California, United States — Strategic Finance
About the Team
OpenAI’s mission is to build safe artificial general intelligence (AGI) which benefits all of humanity. This long-term undertaking brings the world’s best scientists, engineers, and business professionals together under one organization.
We're building the most advanced AI models and platforms, making it easy for developers and customers to benefit from AI via the OpenAI API and ChatGPT. Our API also provides developers access to Codex – a model that translates natural language into code – and we partnered with GitHub to create an AI pair programmer, Copilot. We're working to bring other research efforts into the API such as DALL-E 2 (our text to image generator) and CLIP (our state-of-the-art image classifier).
OpenAI Strategic Finance is responsible for ensuring the organization is set up for success in pursuit of our mission. We are building an elite team to drive strategy and financial insight at OpenAI, providing an independent and objective perspective to leadership.
About the Role
As the strategic finance lead focusing on infrastructure, you will be responsible for defining and driving key investment decisions we make on public cloud and dedicated infrastructure (e.g. private cloud). This is a cross-functional and strategic role, working closely with engineers, research scientists, and external partners.
We believe that increasing compute is a huge lever to AI progress and we build some of the largest Supercomputers in the world. When our Owl cluster launched in 2019 it would've been among the top 5 of the TOP500 supercomputers in the world. Since then we've only continued to grow. You won’t encounter any other organization in the world with as much compute per employee. We are a small team that moves quickly, with access to huge resources, working with a direct impact on the success of OpenAI and, by extension, the field of AI as a whole.
