About the company
You.com is the world's first open search engine platform that summarizes the web for users, with no ads, superior privacy choices, and personalization through preferred sources.

You.com is more than just a new search engine — it's a movement to make the internet a place of trust, facts, and kindness — our guiding principles that we're committing to from day one.

It's an audacious goal, but we're ambitious people. We're looking for a few more ambitious folks to join our team.
We’re not just wide-eyed dreamers – we’re pragmatic doers, too. Our founder and CEO, Richard Socher previously started an AI company called MetaMind. Salesforce acquired the company, and Richard became Chief Scientist, leading the company’s AI efforts. Prior to MetaMind, Richard received the best Ph.D. thesis award from Stanford for his groundbreaking work on deep learning. Bryan McCann, co-founder and CTO, is a scientist and philosopher who led natural language processing teams at Salesforce after completing his Master's in C.S. at Stanford. Our founding team members have built companies worth hundreds of millions of dollars and scaled software to serve millions of users. For fun, we run marathons, paramotor, write poetry, read Latin, hike, and camp in the middle of nowhere.
If this sounds intriguing, say hello!

Experience building ranking systems and familiarity with industry-standard ranking metrics
Experience with search systems such as ElasticSearch, Solr, or Lucene
Experience with embedding-based methods that leverage frameworks such as FAISS
You can work on the entire machine learning pipeline from data cleaning, data processing to ML models building and serving
You have a knack for training and tuning neural systems and non-neural systems to get the best of both
Familiarity with major deep learning frameworks such as PyTorch
You want to write high quality code and build a world-class engineering team
You are electrified by the possibilities and challenges of rapidly shipping and iterating on user facing code and building a consumer application with high public visibility

Culturally
You are a kind, friendly person and strive to create a kind, inclusive work place filled with smiles and laughter
You take and give feedback graciously as part of growing individually and as a team
You will take joy in collaborative brainstorming and proposing novel extensions
You want to play an active role throughout the process of delivering your work to users
You are always willing to learn what you do not know
You are dependable and take pride in your work
You enjoy jumping in to help others with whatever part of the product they are building
You want to be part of defining and building a team around a vision and technology that has a direct path to improving the daily lives of people all over the world

Historically
You have a strong portfolio, whether it is a collection of professional, academic, or personal projects taking the form of production code, published papers, or open source contributions

You.com is an equal opportunity employer: your race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, or disability status don’t matter. We’re committed to building a diverse, inclusive, and supportive workplace that is effectively distributed around the world.

We're a remote-first company, but work hours are generally within the Pacific Timezone (7 hours behind UTC). We get together in-person regularly as a team, but as long as your able to maintain significant overlap with Pacific hours during the workday we're comfortable hiring in almost any location (location-specific legal requirements permitting).

Benefits
• Competitive salary and equity
• Great health, dental, and vision insurance for you and your family
• 401(k) plan
• Unlimited time off (4+ weeks encouraged annually)
• Generous parental leave
