2 July 2021


Position: Senior or Lead Full Stack Engineer

Salary: $150K-$200K (dependent on work location & level of experience)

Location: San Francisco, CA or Fully Remote anywhere in the US

Ought is an applied research lab building Elicit, a GPT-3-based research assistant for questions about the future.

Today, researchers and policy analysts use Elicit to find relevant publications for a literature review, find datasets, or brainstorm research questions that are interesting to their audience. Researchers can define new tasks by showing Elicit just a few examples of the task being done. Elicit then scales those tasks to thousands of publications and datasets.

The Role and Your Impact:

  • Build intuitive interfaces that let research analysts use language models as tools for thought

  • Add ways for users to quickly provide feedback to the tool to create an interactive training loop

  • Build support for teams and collaboration

  • Connect Elicit with external data sources such as spreadsheets, site searches

What You May Bring:

  • Strong CS fundamentals and software engineering background

  • Experience building complex web apps from scratch in Javascript (React, Node, Typescript), HTML, and CSS

  • Ability to quickly convert ideas into tests and prototypes

  • Clear communication about engineering topics to a diverse audience

Bonus If You Have:

  • Interest in language models (training, finetuning, evaluation) and natural language processing more generally

  • A startup mindset. We expect to measure our impact in part by the people whose lives we improve through better reasoning and models of the future

  • Experience with functional programming (e.g. SICP), programmable software (e.g., Emacs, Vim), or symbolic AI (e.g. PAIP)
