Who we are

Grid.ai enables companies of all sizes to train state-of-the-art AI models on hundreds of cloud GPUs and TPUs from their laptops. From the creator of the popular framework PyTorch Lightning, Grid is a platform for training models that enables rapid research iteration. Grid aims to simplify scalable AI research so that when a network becomes complex, code doesn’t.

Focus on Machine Learning, Not Infrastructure.

Grid.ai is backed by $18.6 million in funding from Index Ventures, Bain Capital Ventures, and Firstminute. Grid is a remote-first company founded by William Falcon and Luis Capelo.

What’s important to us

We are building a company of people that care deeply about the impact of AI on our society. We value:

  • Integrity: AI is bound to change how we interact with computers, with each other, and the world—for the better. We are committed to building an inclusive company and developing ethical AI that improves humanity.
  • Perseverance: Be bold, take the initiative, and make decisions with confidence. We empower our community, clients, and colleagues to tackle the impossible.
  • Curiosity: We are genuinely interested in finding solutions to advance the state of AI research and foster its application in novel products. It's not about whether we can solve the problem, but how.
We also feel that it’s essential to point out the self-evident here – there’s a genuine lack of diversity in our industry, which has to change. One of our goals is to help drive that change. Grid.ai is fully committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion in all of its practices, especially when it comes to growing our team. Our culture promotes inclusion, and we embrace how rewarding it is to work with people from all walks of life.

What we're looking for

We are looking for a senior or staff-level frontend engineer with experience spearheading frontend development for complex systems or developer tools. You thrive in a fast-paced, start-up environment with a focus on speed, quality, and iteration from proof of concept to release.

You will join the Application team, work alongside Karolis (our Tech Lead), Alec, Rick, and Sherin, and report to Noha, our Senior Engineering Manager. This team is responsible for delivering the functionality of the Grid product to users, from the Frontend, CLI, and API, to billing, security, and integrations. Cross-team collaboration is very important to us, so you will also work on data models and microservices with Neven, Filinto, and Tim on the Platform team.

This is an opportunity to create groundbreaking technology that will transform the machine learning ecosystem!

What you’ll do

  • Write readable/testable/efficient code in React and Redux and master our technology stack to deliver new features, improve system stability, and increase overall performance.
  • Partner with engineering and product leaders on developing the user interface and frontend infrastructure while using your experience to set the technical direction for large projects.
  • Evaluate, strengthen, and document technical architecture, tools, and processes.
  • Champion software quality, implement automation, drive continuous delivery, and reduce time to production while proactively reducing technical debt.
  • Mentor and coach engineers on system design, operating in high uncertainty, and problem-solving to create a supportive, inclusive environment in which each engineer can grow.

  • Coding - 45 minutes: The first interview will be a coding interview with Alec Merdler. We will provide a study guide for each interview, along with instructions on interview logistics and how to use CoderPad, a collaborative platform for coding interviews.
  • Technical Interviews - 3 sessions at 45 minutes each: These interviews will cover your domain expertise and systems design. During this stage, you will meet our CEO, VP of Engineering, and one of our engineers.
  • Culture Chat - 30 minutes: You will meet your future manager, Noha Alon, to chat about the teams, Ethics in AI, our values, and how our technology can be used to create a positive impact.
  • Offer: We try our best to give you a decision within 24 hours of each interview. At this point, we will present our offer and provide additional context about our stock options and growth trajectory.
