About Us
 
Encord is a London-based startup building a comprehensive training data solution for computer vision AI applications. Our mission is to enable companies to unlock the power of AI while retaining 100% control of their data. In 2021 we raised $20M from top investors including CRV, Y Combinator Continuity, the Harvard Management Company, top industry executives, and other leading Bay Area investors.
 
Started by ex-computer scientists, physicists, and quants, we felt first hand how the lack of tools to prepare quality training data was impeding the progress of building practical AI. AI feels to us like what the early days of computing or the internet must have felt like, where the potential of the technology is clear, but the tools and processes surrounding it are terrible. We have devised a unique methodology for automating the tasks related to preparing quality training data, in effect turning the training data problem into a data science problem.

The Role
We are looking for an experienced frontend engineer to help us build delightful and easy-to-use user features for the Cord Web App. You will also:

• Create intuitive interfaces for algorithmic training data creation and pipeline management used by both technical and non-technical users

• Collaborate closely with the business teams to understand and solve our customers’ pain points with creative and intuitive web applications

• Design, build, and maintain core user interfaces, including data analysis and visualisation tools

The role will be exposed to a broad tech stack (e.g. ReactJS, Python, REST & GraphQL, OpenCV, PyTorch, GCP, AWS & CUDA, Kubernetes) and the cutting edge of computer vision and deep learning.

Qualifications

The right candidate will have proven experience working as a frontend software engineer. Experience with any of the following is a plus:

• ReactJS (incl. Hooks) & Redux, ES6+, HTML5, TypeScript

• Building JavaScript developer tools

• Building B2B/Enterprise SaaS applications

What We Offer

Encord offers a unique opportunity to be part of a startup with a clear mission and vision. You will get to explore and build services enterprise AI use cases across many different industry verticals such as healthcare, surveillance, retail, and agriculture.

Our work is at the cutting edge of computer vision and deep learning, which also includes working on solving unsolved problems within those fields. We offer competitive compensation and equity options in the business for the right candidate.
