About the Role

We are looking for a driven and innovative full-stack software engineer to ideate and build solutions, prototypes, and demos for previously unsolvable problems that deliver significant value for our customers and, in turn, their customers.

This role is based in our San Francisco HQ. We offer relocation support to new employees.


In this role, you will:

  • Build custom prototypes and product demos that highlight the utility and showcase a novel capability of our APIs.
  • Research and ideate new ways in which OpenAI APIs can be used, both independently and in partnership with customers.
  • Proactively identify gaps in our product based on evaluating customer needs, and build solutions to address those gaps.
  • Highlight new and creative ways customers can integrate with our APIs.
  • Lead the technical design and implementation of socially-beneficial or commercially-viable use cases.
  • Publish to our open-source repositories, tutorials, and blog posts.
  • Serve as the technical authority for external technical and non-technical audiences.
  • Be the connective tissue between Applied Research, Product, Engineering, and the customer.


You’ll thrive in this role if you:

  • Have 4+ years of full-stack software engineering and application development experience.
  • Are highly proficient in Python, JavaScript, React, and other web technologies.
  • Built and delivered prototypes on top of our API platform.
  • Have a track record of rapidly prototyping ideas from your own volition and seeing them through to reality.
  • Possess a creative mindset, often thinking outside the box.
  • Own problems end-to-end, and are willing to pick up whatever knowledge you're missing to get the job done.
  • Operate with high horsepower, are adept at frequent context switching and working on multiple projects at once with expansive ownership, and ruthlessly prioritize.
  • Thrive in dynamic environments and can navigate ambiguity with ease.
  • Are passionate about ML, data science, and widening the reach of practical AI technologies.
