OpenAI is hiring a

Software Engineer, Full-Stack

San Francisco, United States

About the team

The Programming Assistant Team is building a next generation of tools for programmers and knowledge workers leveraging our state of the art programming and conversational models. We are looking for an incredibly strong and self directed engineer to fully own the frontend and interface layer between our models and the users. That role will require shipping early, shipping often and iterating a lot on one of the largest scientific advances of our times, where there is no clear prior work involved.

Engineering talent can have an outsized impact at OpenAI at the moment.

About the role

As a Full-Stack Engineer, you will closely collaborate with our world-class research teams to build and deploy powerful AI systems and products that can perform previously impossible tasks and achieve unprecedented levels of performance.

In this role, you will design and develop the interface and backend layer of an assistant for highly sophisticated users to interact with our models. Some say ChatGPT was mostly a UX improvement. How can we make another 10x UX jump? It will be the role of this hire to answer that question. 

Ideally you:

  • Have strong web development skills, building both clean UIs and reusable middleware and component systems.
  • Have proficiency in TypeScript and React for front-end development
  • Have experience building stable/scalable Web APIs and services
  • Have Python expertise (including async) and using either Flask or FastAPI.
  • Have experience driving large-scale projects in a fast-paced and highly collaborative environment
  • Like building general frameworks and infrastructure that could be used for many different projects
  • Enjoy fast-paced, collaborative, and cutting-edge research environments
  • Are interested in and thoughtful about the impacts of AI technology (see our Charter for examples of our goals) and care deeply about the impact of ML models on people's lives; how to maximize the benefits and mitigate the possible harms.
