About the Role

We are looking for highly motivated engineers to help us architect the future of machine learning and GPU cloud computing. This position requires a love of software and a willingness to jump between many levels of a stack (from nitty gritty optimization to questions of systems architecture and organization). In this role, you'll be helping to build out the public API services used by our clients and SDKs, and you will be implementing new user scenarios for machine learning practices. Our stack makes use of an ORM layer and a high performance framework on top of Express.js. You should feel comfortable building and debugging all parts of any scenario especially the middle tier API layer in Node.js. There will also be opportunities to work in other parts of the stack, including the database layer, the message broker layer, and backend services written in Go or other languages.

About You

The ideal candidate should be energized new tech/frameworks/tools, and utilize that technology and their fellow peers to do whatever is most expedient to get the job done. We hope to continue to build a team full of resilient, tenacious collaborators that are passionate about building a product for fellow developers. The market for the Gradient platform is open for us to fully capture, and a new contributor's focus on product and design can accelerate that success.
