Job type: Full-time

Hiring from: US only

Category: Software Dev


A growing problem in scientific research is the poor reproducibility of the reported scientific claims. scite, a Brooklyn-based startup backed by the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, and leading venture capitalists, is working to solve this problem by developing a platform that evaluates the veracity of scientific claims through citation analysis. By ingesting millions of scientific articles, extracting the citation context, and then applying our deep learning model we are able to identify citations as supporting, contradicting, or simply mentioning.

We are looking for a senior full-stack developer interested in making a positive impact on a large societal problem. Our team is nearly fully remote so we are looking for individuals that are self-motivated and eager to take on a leading role at a growing startup. Specifically, we are seeking people with experience in any/all of the following:

  • JavaScript (ES6)

  • React/Redux

  • Python

  • Postgres

  • Elasticsearch

  • Docker/Docker Swarm

  • Mongo

  • Keras/TensorFlow

We work closely with Shopify, Klaviyo, Yotpo, and other top tech platforms in the ecommerce space. We are pioneering the future of ecommerce through conversational commerce. We are an all-remote company and venture backed, some of our investors include General Catalyst, Boost VC, and M Ventures.

    More about working in Engineering at Octane AI

    • We believe the happier you are, the more productive you and the team are. Being a remote company allows us to work from wherever we'd prefer. Spend your evenings and weekends with your family/friends/hobbies.

    • We hate bureaucracy. Feel free to talk to anyone in the team. 

    • Your ideas are welcome. If you know how to improve our codebase, our product, our processes, don't be shy to share it.

    • In our weekly meetings we do a fun thing called "fast parrot". Everybody, including the CEO, is involved. It's a little weird and fun at the same time, especially if you are doing a meeting from a public place.

    • Our release process involves code review. In rare cases, we deploy without it, but we try hard to make sure at least one more pair of eyes looks at the code.

    • Flexible working hours. We have only two meetings a week (they're back-to-back) where the whole team participates and it's necessary to be online. For the rest of the time, it's up to you to choose the most productive schedule for your work. 

    • Three days a month we have "maintenance days" where you choose what to work on. Usually we work on tech debt, i.e. code cleanup or purely tech improvements.

    • Don't work if you are sick. It's way better to rest and recover quicker than work at half power for a long time.
