Software Engineer, New Products

OpenAI

OpenAI

Software Engineering
San Francisco, CA, USA
Posted on Monday, September 25, 2023

About the role:

We are looking for a self-starter engineer who loves building new products in an iterative and fast-moving environment. In this role, you will be bringing our DALL-E 3 and future generative models to millions of users around the world. Our users include everyday enthusiasts, creators and professionals.

As OpenAI scales, we’re looking for experienced, problem-solving engineers to build new products and scale our systems. Our success depends on our ability to quickly iterate on products while also ensuring that they are performant and reliable. You will also collaborate closely with the DALL-E research team and work with them on continual improvement and product exploration. You will be a key part of the effort to push these technologies forward, and onto the next 100x users.

You’ll work in a deeply iterative, collaborative, fast-paced environment to bring our technology to millions of users around the world, and ensure it’s delivered with safety and reliability in mind.

In this role, you will:

  • Design and build the development and production platforms that power products for DALL-E and beyond, enabling reliability and security at scale
  • Partner with researchers, engineers, product managers, and designers to bring new features and research capabilities to the world
  • Accelerate engineering productivity by empowering your fellow engineers with excellent tooling and systems
  • Like all other teams, we are responsible for the reliability of the systems we build. This includes an on-call rotation to respond to critical incidents as needed
  • Help create a diverse, equitable, and inclusive culture that makes all feel welcome while enabling radical candor and fast-paced collaboration

You might thrive in this role if you:

  • Have been a startup founder or an early-stage engineer
  • Have meaningful experience with building (and refactoring) production systems to deliver new product 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 are 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
