Clarifai is hiring a

Senior Backend Engineer

Tallinn, Estonia

About the Company:

Clarifai is an artificial intelligence company that excels at visual recognition. We do not sell an abstract, futuristic technology - we sell a solution that people can use today to solve real-world problems. We believe that the same AI technology that gives big tech companies a competitive edge should be available to developers and businesses. That’s why we build products to make it easy, quick, and inexpensive for them to innovate with AI, go to market faster, and build better customer experiences. We make “teaching” AI just as accessible as we make using AI, which is why our technology is the most personalized, unbiased, accurate solution in the market.

We have secured $40M in funding up to date, backed by Menlo Ventures, Google Ventures, USV, NVIDIA, Qualcomm, Osage, Lux Capital, LDV Capital, and Corazon Capital. To continue to succeed, we need people like you to join the team!

Clarifai is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace dedicated to pursuing and hiring a diverse workforce.

The Opportunity:

As a Senior Engineer, you collaborate with your colleagues on the backend team to set a technical vision for our AI systems, as well as train and mentor engineers to develop their skills and technical understanding. You architect our AI web services in addition to improving existing features, reliability, flexibility, and scalability as usage increases.

We are looking for someone comfortable in several programming languages and excited about building new features in Go and Python. You should care about software design and have built systems that other people love to use and work with, and have experience building and scaling distributed, highly-available systems.

Our backend tech stack includes Python, Go, Postgres, Docker, Redis, REST, AWS, and Kubernetes (but don't worry if you haven't used some of these- we will teach you anything you don't know!).


You build the systems and services behind the Clarifai magic. Neural networks are data-hungry beasts, and you keep them well fed!


  • A minimum of 5 years backend software development experience
  • You have experience working in a tech company/industry. AI experience is a plus.
  • Experience with GO or Python is a huge plus.
  • Experience with performance tuning. 
  • Clarifai has lots of projects, experience in juggling multiple projects is highly preferred.
  • Think fast! Move fast! We hope you thrive working in a fast pace environment.
  • We prefer that you have experience working on a distributed team, but great communications skills and transparency will help everyone on the team.
  • Agile experience.
