Join the natural language revolution

MindMeld is looking for talented and motivated people to help us build a great company and solve some of the most challenging problems in Artificial Intelligence. We are working on technologies that are poised to dramatically improve how we use computing devices to find information and accomplish tasks. The company was founded by repeat entrepreneurs who have built successful, large-scale Internet applications from the ground up. We are well funded, and our backers include some of the largest companies in the technology industry. Our mission is to build a company where world-class engineers and scientists love to work.

Engineering

Engineering Manager

We are looking for an experienced engineer to help manage and lead our growing and extremely passionate and talented engineering team. You will be an engineering leader at a 30-person company, and are expected to contribute significantly to the product & company direction.

As software engineers at MindMeld, we use the latest machine learning and natural language processing technologies and workflows to power a new class of intelligent voice-driven assistants. While experience and knowledge of ML/NLP is a plus, we are looking for someone who will spec, architect, and implement complex software systems, someone who will provide career guidance and mentorship to our engineers, and more broadly, someone who cares about shaping the way people interact with technology.

This will be a very hands-on role; expect your days to be filled with architecture discussions, product decisions, and coding. We look forward to meeting and working with you!

Things We Look For:

  • B.S., M.S., or Ph.D. in Computer Science or equivalent
  • 1-5 years of management experience, focusing on the challenge of attracting and retaining great talent, and of the impact that culture has on a team
  • You are currently or have been a software engineer in the past
  • Experience using and building web service API platforms
  • Experience building scalable computing infrastructures

Full Stack Engineer

We're looking for people that are comfortable (or want to be) at all levels of the stack. On the front end you should be comfortable in HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript. We use Angular, but respect people that like Ember, Meteor, React, and the like. Our servers run in Python, PHP, and Node.js, but we like Ruby people too. We know you might have strong opinions in the Grunt vs Gulp debate (or perhaps are a Broccoli fan), but you understand the utility of a good build system. In the data layer we use Redis and Elasticsearch, but if you're a fan of SQL, NoSQL, or memcached you'll do just fine.

The specific technologies you know are less important to us, as long as you know how a web service works front-to-back, how to design REST APIs, and when to use Web Sockets. While we don't expect everyone to know everything, the ability to learn new things is essential.

Things We Look For:

  • B.S., M.S., or Ph.D. in Computer Science or equivalent
  • Strong understanding of Internet technologies and web development
  • Experience using and building web service API platforms
  • Experience building scalable computing infrastructures
