About Mystic
We’ve built an API for serverless ML compute. We abstract the entire infrastructure required to train and deploy your models efficiently so ML engineers can focus on ML, not servers.
We’re building a strong engineering team and are at an important inflection point. Our engineers are responsible for developing our application in accordance with our roadmap and customer needs, and for designing and implementing robust and scalable development practices. Engineers will set the direction of our product, culture and company.

You’ll be involved in all aspects of the development and performance of our API. From our python client, integrating into the wider MLOps landscape, building tools to optimise internal performance through to improving and maintaining the infrastructure that handles API requests.
