Founding Product Engineer role at AI Research Lab, Imbue

Tech stack

  • Python

This is an on-site position


In this role, you’ll have end-to-end ownership over Imbue's entire product. They are still in the very earliest stages of development, so you’ll have the ability to shape their product from beginning to end—not just the technologies that they use, but also the overall direction of the product. You will be responsible for everything to do with the product, from user interviews, to prototype development, to ensuring that Imbue has a smooth process for deploying changes. 

This role is a particularly good fit for anyone who either has previously been (or would like to be) a founder of a software product company. They are looking primarily for judgment—for someone who can understand what actually matters and then make that happen.

Example projects:

  • Conduct user interviews. Shadow users on the job and as they use the product.
  • Develop prototypes for entirely new products.
  • Deploy new products and quickly generate feedback from both internal and external users.
  • Create robust frontend and backend infrastructure to support fast iteration.
  • Rapidly iterate and ship new features.

You are:

  • Motivated by solving real problems for real customers.
  • Energized by understanding and talking to users.
  • Able to work independently and without explicit directions.
  • A great software engineer. You will need to write a considerable amount of software across the stack.
  • Familiar with Python.
  • Either experienced or interested in being a founder of a software product company.


  • Work directly on creating software with human-like intelligence.
  • Generous compensation, equity, and benefits.
  • $20K+ yearly budget for self-improvement: coaching, courses, conferences, etc.
  • Actively co-create and participate in a positive, intentional team culture.
  • Spend time learning, reading papers, and deeply understanding prior work.
  • Frequent team events, dinners, off-sites, and hanging out.
