You're Brilliant. We're Hiring.
You are an amazing software engineer that loves taking new ideas and algorithms and applying them in creative ways. We are small, fast growing start-up, eager to build meaningful, everyday apps at scale. Our first product is Sunshine Contacts, but we are excited about building so much more with your help.
We believe that AI is transformational, but it hasn’t generally been applied to solve the most practical, everyday problems. We’re utilizing AI to build tools that help people spend less time on mundane tasks and more time on what they find valuable and inspiring.
We are looking for software engineers with strong backgrounds in artificial intelligence and machine learning (PhDs strongly preferred), who thrive in exploring new datasets and ambiguous problem spaces. NLP, computer vision, deep learning, and even basic classifiers have useful applications on the everyday, practical problems we are tackling.
As an early team member, you should be comfortable working in a fast-paced environment and enjoy applying your experience to new domains to help find fresh ideas. If finding novel, potentially cutting edge, uses of artificial intelligence on everyday problems sounds interesting to you, please consider applying!
  • PhD in Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning or a related technical field
  • 4+ years of relevant software development experience with one or more of the following: language processing, image processing, pattern recognition, classification, recommendation systems, ranking systems or similar.
  • Self-starting scientific thinker who loves to experiment with new datasets and enjoys inventing new solutions in the face of ambiguities.
  • Solid software development experience with one or more general purpose programming languages
  • Familiarity with deep learning frameworks such as Tensorflow, Keras, or Pytorch
  • Solid Machine Learning background, familiar with most machine learning methods and experience working with different types of datasets and varied domains
  • Good written and spoken communication skills
  • Under normal circumstances employees must be able to and willing to lawfully work in our downtown Palo Alto, California office. However, remote work is being accommodated in order to comply with safety measures.

People matter to us a lot. Just celebrating diversity isn’t enough -- we commit to unabashedly tailoring our hiring practices, our processes, and our culture to foster an inclusive workplace for people of all backgrounds. Sunshine is proud to be an equal opportunity employer working to raise the standards of diversity in tech.
