Robust Intelligence's mission is to eliminate AI Risk. As the world increasingly adopts AI into automated decision processes, we inherit great risk. 

Our flagship product is built to be integrated with existing AI systems to enumerate and eliminate risks caused by unintentional and intentional (adversarial) failure modes. With Generative AI becoming increasingly popular, new vulnerabilities and attacks present a significant threat to AI companies and their consumers. Our Generative AI Firewall provides a safety net against these failure modes.

At Robust Intelligence, we have built a multidisciplinary team of ML Engineers, AI security experts, and software engineers to advance the state of AI security. Together, we're building the future of secure, trustworthy AI.

In this role you will work with cross-functional teams to shape the product, define the roadmap and ensure execution of initiatives for our full suite of offerings. You will work with customers to define platform features, and coordinate with engineering teams to deliver them to enterprise customers.

This is a very visible and hands-on PM leadership role where you report to the executive team and will interact with peers in Engineering, Sales, Marketing and Product Management.
