About the job 🚀

Our mission is to transform the way people work by helping anyone rapidly build and share smart, trusted data apps with their customers.

We're looking for a product-minded full stack engineer excited to build the single AI-powered system for sharing and operationalizing data across organizations. 

It’s an incredible time to join — you’ll work directly with the founding team to influence our product roadmap, and to architect/code product features that each make a foundational difference. You’ll help build a fast-growing startup culture of excellence, diversity, and impact.


About us

  • We’ve raised significant seed venture capital from some of the most successful investors, operators and founders in Silicon Valley. (Our lead investor also led Snowflake’s Seed.)
  • Our co-founding team (ErikKavitaClarence) are product/technical leaders who built data/AI systems at Google, Meta, and Microsoft. They lived the customer problems firsthand from both platform and practitioner perspectives, and are now applying that experience to build a great solution.

About you

  • You’re a product engineer passionate about the transformative possibilities of Data, AI, and LLMs. You’re thrilled at the opportunity to redefine industry interaction patterns by creating human <> AI interfaces that have never existed before, all while using the newest and best AI tools (e.g. ChatGPT, CoPilot etc.) to get more done faster.
  • You have strong communication skills to collaborate with teammates on-site in a hybrid work environment with offices in San Francisco and Toronto.
  • You embody an ownership mindset and are a hands-on contributor eager to play to your strengths while learning from and helping cultivate a top-tier engineering team — Maybe you even want to start your own company one day!
  • You excel in ambiguity, relish the ownership in solving undefined problems, and take pride in your impact in high-performance, outcome-driven environments.

Preferred Qualifications

  • 5+ years of experience building full-stack product systems.
  • Experience building projects from 0 to 1 (at a job or side hustle) with specific outcomes.
  • Strong passion/interest in data platforms and AI/LLM pipelines.

Our tech stack

  • NextJS/React (Frontend)
  • GraphQL (API)
  • NodeJS + Express (Backend)
  • PostgreSQL + Prisma ORM (Data)
  • TypeScript (Language)
  • OpenAI (LLM)
  • AWS (Environment)
