Hit a glass ceiling in your job? Want to play a key role in building and scaling a start-up where there’s no limit to your progression?
With all the rage around ChatGPT and AI these days, this is an exciting chance for you to be a part of an Educational AI product’s growth right from the start. With tonnes of greenfield work for you to get stuck into and a goal to reach 1 billion users, you’d be this company’s second hire, and first on the backend.
They’re offering a salary of up to £100K as well as a significant amount of stock options. As the first backend hire there is a clear path or progression – they are looking to invest in you and your self-development enabling you to grow whilst the company does too. They also offer a large learning budget, help to kit out your workspace (including providing your equipment) and private health insurance for you and your family.
You’d be the first Backend Engineer to join their engineering team, which currently numbers 5 overall. They expect this would grow to around 12 within the next year as they look to add roughly 8 more heads.
In your first year, you’ll be focusing on building and delivering plenty of new features on this learning platform that helps people to remember everything they learn. You’ll use AI to drive the experiences that delight the users and work with a product powered by LLMs on a daily basis to transform notes and study materials into fun quizzes that are based on cognitive science – think Duolingo but for everything!
It’s a backend focussed role, working primarily with Python and Flask. They’re happy to talk to people who’ve not worked with Flask before, though experience with machine learning models would put you in good stead.
Ideally you’ll also have worked with Celery, RabbitMQ and Redis and have a great knowledge of caches and queues. The Founders have some technical knowledge though want the person they bring on to take control of the backend and build a resilient and scalable product (with a big focus on user impact), whilst also sharing knowledge with the team.
On the frontend they work with React, Next and TypeScript. It’s a bonus if you’ve any experience here though absolutely not essential.
An early-stage well-funded startup that’s grown 100X in the last year, they’re run by a
former Google & Amazon employee, a former teacher, and a database expert who became best friends while studying at Cambridge University. Tell them what you’re learning and they’ll use AI to quiz you in a way that stops you from forgetting, this start-up is on a mission to make learning so easy and fun that anyone can learn anything.
