Software Engineer, ChatGPT

San Francisco, California, USA

Full time



About the Role

The ChatGPT team is multi-disciplinary, spanning research as well as product development. 

You’ll likely spend time on some of these areas:

  • Accelerate our research team by building core infrastructure, tooling, and data systems to enable rapid experimentation and learning

  • Scale and strengthen our production infrastructure to support orders of magnitude of reliable growth for ChatGPT

  • Build new product features to make ChatGPT useful, delightful, and broadly beneficial

Whatever your focus, you’ll iterate rapidly with an integrated, cross-functional team advancing the state of the art of AI modeling, deployment, and safety.

You might thrive in this role if you:

  • Have meaningful experience with building (and rebuilding) production systems to deliver new capabilities and to handle increasing scale

  • Care deeply about the end user experience and take pride in building products to solve customer needs

  • Have a humble attitude, an eagerness to help your colleagues, and a desire to do whatever it takes to make the team succeed

  • Own problems end-to-end, and be willing to pick up whatever knowledge you're missing to get the job done

  • Build tools to accelerate your own (and your teammates’) workflows, but only when off-the-shelf solutions won’t do

  • Have been a startup founder or an early-stage engineer

Our tech stack

We use Python across our production systems as well as our research infrastructure. We make significant use of Kubernetes, Terraform, Postgres, and Cosmos DB. We primarily use TypeScript and React for building web interfaces. 

While we value experience with these technologies, we are primarily looking for engineers with strong technical skills and the ability to quickly pick up new tools and frameworks.
