About the Role
As a Software Engineer, you will help build AI systems that can perform previously impossible tasks or achieve outstanding levels of performance. This requires good engineering (for example designing, implementing, and optimizing state-of-the-art AI models), writing bug-free machine learning code (surprisingly difficult!), and building the science behind the algorithms employed. In all the projects this role pursues, the ultimate goal is to push the field forward.
The Research Acceleration team builds high-quality research tools and frameworks to increase research productivity across OpenAI, with the goal of accelerating progress towards AGI. We frequently collaborate with other teams to speed up the development of new state-of-the-art capabilities. For example, we recently collaborated with our Codegen research team on the Codex model, which can generate code in Python and many other languages.
Do you love research tools, training frameworks, and collaborating on cutting-edge AI models? If so, this role is for you! We are looking for people who are self-directed and enjoy determining the most meaningful problem to solve in order to accelerate our research.
We're looking for a track record of:
3+ years of relevant software engineering experience
Owning problems end-to-end, with a willingness to pick up whatever knowledge is missing to get the job done
Some demonstrated interest in ML
Bonus: contributions to an AI framework such as PyTorch or Tensorflow.
OpenAI is an AI research and deployment company dedicated to ensuring that general-purpose artificial intelligence benefits all of humanity. We push the boundaries of the capabilities of AI systems and seek to safely deploy them to the world through our products. AI is an extremely powerful tool that must be created with safety and human needs at its core, and to achieve our mission, we must encompass and value the many different perspectives, voices, and experiences that form the full spectrum of humanity. At OpenAI, we believe artificial intelligence has the potential to help people solve immense global challenges, and we want the upside of AI to be widely shared. Join us in shaping the future of technology.
