Software Engineer - GenAI Platform



Software Engineering
Posted on Saturday, June 1, 2024


At Databricks, we are passionate about enabling data teams to solve the world's toughest problems — from making the next mode of transportation a reality to accelerating the development of medical breakthroughs. We do this by building and running the world's best data and AI infrastructure platform so our customers can use deep data insights to improve their business. Founded by engineers — and customer obsessed — we leap at every opportunity to tackle technical challenges, from designing next-gen UI/UX for interfacing with data to scaling our services and infrastructure across millions of virtual machines. And we're only getting started.

Founded in late 2020 by a small group of machine learning engineers and researchers, MosaicML enables companies to securely fine-tune, train and deploy custom AI models on their own data, for maximum security and control. Compatible with all major cloud providers, the MosaicML platform provides maximum flexibility for AI development. Introduced in 2023, MosaicML’s pretrained transformer models have established a new standard for open source, commercially usable LLMs and have been downloaded over 3 million times. MosaicML is committed to the belief that a company’s AI models are just as valuable as any other core IP, and that high-quality AI models should be available to all.

Now part of Databricks since July 2023, we are passionate about enabling our customers to solve the world's toughest problems — from making the next mode of transportation a reality to accelerating the development of medical breakthroughs. We do this by building and running the world's best data and AI platform so our customers can use deep data insights to improve their business. We leap at every opportunity to solve technical challenges, striving to empower our customers with the best data and AI capabilities.


MosaicML is hiring experienced full stack engineers who lean towards frontend development to build out our generative AI platform for the ML model development lifecycle including pre-training of large language models (LLMs), fine-tuning, evaluation, and serving. You will thrive in this role if you have a strong sense of end-to-end ownership and enjoy translating user requirements into product interfaces to build applications that users will love. In this role, you will have the opportunity to contribute to many parts of our stack such as customer facing web applications, internal tooling, and core platform infrastructure.

You will:

  • Play a key role in the end-to-end design and implementation of core features in our Generative AI offering
  • Work closely with both ML researchers in the company and customers to identify key areas of development for our generative AI platform
  • Have strong end-to-end product ownership, translating product requirements into user interfaces and backend as well as own the implementation of these designs
  • Ensure the reliability, security, and scalability of our applications

We look for:

  • 4+ years of full time industry experience
  • Strong software engineering skills
  • Experience building large-scale web applications
  • Outstanding knowledge and skill set in the majority of the modern frontend stack: Framework (we use react), API, network clients, testing tools, state management, network protocols, typescript and js/html/css.
  • Eye for usability, design and simplicity
  • Customer centric focus and startup spirit
  • Strong sense of end-to-end product ownership as well as intuition for both robust system design and product usability
  • Effective communication skills and the ability to articulate complex technical ideas to cross-disciplinary internal and external stakeholders.

We value candidates who are curious about all parts of the company's success and are willing to learn new technologies along the way.
