Programmers spend too much time doing repetitive work — copying and pasting from StackOverflow, fixing simple errors, and writing boilerplate code. We're building an AI code engine that does this work for you. Programming using Kite is faster and more fun.

Kite is well-funded by top investors in Silicon Valley, including the founders of PayPal, Stripe, Palantir, and Dropbox to name a few. We are looking to expand our 16-person startup with talented individuals who are interested in joining an early stage startup. The ideal candidate is excited to help guide the direction of our product and company. They will have a significant amount of ownership of critical technical components. Our team is growing rapidly and we hope you'll grow with us too!

    • Maintain and iteratively improve the data pipeline infrastructure
    • Write data transformation logic to scrub and join large datasets, and handle changes in source data
    • Turn technical requirements into a plan to execute, test, and deliver on time
    • Become an engineering leader as the team grows, if desired
    • Write clean, maintainable code
    • Design and code reviews
