Full time
Who We Are:
AI is the new electricity: Just as electricity transformed numerous industries starting 100 years ago, AI is now poised to do the same. AI Fund is a startup studio building new AI companies from the ground up. Our companies bridge AI technology and applications, focusing on industries and problems that we believe move the world forward. Founded by Dr. Andrew Ng, our team merges a deep understanding of AI technology with a proven ability to start new ventures. We have a unique business model that prepares founding members of a portfolio company with technical validation of the idea, experienced back office operational support and our team’s AI know how as well as connections within the AI community. 


About Bearing AI:
Bearing is at the forefront of bringing AI to the maritime shipping industry. This is a trillion dollar industry that moves 90% of the goods we interact with on a daily basis, but has traditionally lagged far behind other industries in adopting new technologies. At Bearing, we’re changing that. We’re building an AI-driven platform that helps shipping companies dramatically streamline their operations and tackle their single biggest pain point. We’ve already built our first product and have some of the world’s biggest shippers as our partners. Our team is made up of highly experienced AI engineers and tech industry veterans and we’re backed by the AI Fund and shipping industry investors.


What You Will be Doing:
We are currently looking for an exceptionally talented Full-Stack Engineer to join our small team. You will be responsible for building out our API to support our new WebApp as well as helping us develop new AI-driven products. Since you’ll be joining an early-stage startup at the ground level, you’ll need to be able to wear multiple hats and thrive while working in a dynamic environment. 

Lead the development of a RESTful API to support our new WebApp: Collaborating closely with the rest of our engineering team, you will architect and build out a scalable, reliable back-end for our new WebApp.

Architect and implement new features from scratch: Partnering with our Machine Learning engineers, you will lead the end-to-end development of new AI-driven products.

Improve code across the entire stack: You will identify bugs and performance issues across the stack and work to improve those. You will also build performance monitoring and testing tools to ensure our product quality stays high.
