Senior Software Engineer - AI Web Applications

Remote
Full Time
Experienced

Generative AI is changing the world of content creation and discovery. Raptive’s Product Engineering team is leading the synthesis of generative AI, content creation, and website experience. We’re building products that enable our more than 4,000 creators to maintain their voice, expertise, and authenticity so they prosper in an AI-powered future. If you’re a highly talented and seasoned web engineer passionate about how generative AI can empower creators and engage visitors, we want to talk to you!

We have a remote-first culture, and a beautiful office in Manhattan if that’s your thing; remote U.S. candidates are encouraged to apply.

What you will be doing:

  • You’ll act as an individual contributor with the initiative of a leader – not as a people manager, but as a technical flag-bearer with an urgency to ship.
  • You’ll explore and maximize the impact of generative AI to enhance the experience for web creators and site visitors.
  • You’ll be a full-stack utility player who applies technology creatively to solve customer problems, from JavaScript code on end-user pages, to front-end web UI, back-end services, or data-intensive ETL processes.
  • You’ll design scalable, reliable, maintainable, and extensible systems using an appropriate combination of in-house and third-party technology. 
  • You’ll be a stellar communicator who empathizes with customer needs and collaborates effectively with product managers, senior leaders, engineers, and diverse stakeholders.
  • You’ll be up for tackling any challenge, from developing the first version of a greenfield product, to getting deep into tuning large language models and vector databases for optimal outcomes.

The skills and experience you’ll bring to the job:

  • Extensive experience designing, implementing, testing, shipping, and maintaining scalable web-based software products
  • Production experience with frameworks like AngularJS or React, languages like Python or Ruby, cloud platforms like AWS or GCP, or similar
  • Experience in consuming third-party APIs, and in designing and developing internal APIs
  • Solid data modeling skills, and expertise in SQL querying for database systems such as Postgres, MySQL, or Oracle
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills and ability to work collaboratively
  • Comfortable in the dynamic environment of new product development, delivering quality products even as priorities change through rapid iteration
  • Demonstrate ownership, initiative and the desire to build great products that delight our creators

It’s a big plus if you have prior experience with:

  • OpenAI APIs and models
  • LangChain
  • Vector databases like Pinecone
  • Prompt engineering for LLMs (large language models)
  • Fast.ai libraries
  • Other AI/ML models, frameworks, and tools

Don’t worry, we’re not expecting you to be a dedicated machine-learning engineer or have extensive real-world experience in all the latest generative AI tools. We’d love to see that you have interest in or have explored this area, even for experiments or personal projects. If you’ve shipped production AI-powered apps, all the better. Either way, we have an internal program called AI^2 – Artificial Intelligence Intelligence – to help everyone on our teams build breadth and depth in technologies like these.
