Posted on Thursday, July 6, 2023

Our Vision

At StackAI, we want to enable any company to build and deploy LLM-powered apps in minutes instead of months.

We have developed a best-in-class no-code drag-and-drop tool to compose and chain AI models (LLMs and others!) with the most common data sources (i.e. Postgres, S3, Notion...), and everyday SaaS tools (i.e. Slack, Discord, Whatsapp, etc). We also give LLMs access to the web, the ability to use other APIs, and even give them access to web scrapers!

Our Traction

We merely launched 3 months ago, and already have 26 paying customers (including public companies and unicorns!) and have a waitlist of 2000 users, and growing at an accelerated pace. Checkout as well our thriving Discord community here:

Our customers are using Stack to build completely automated and highly versatile processes into their core products and services: from chatbots and assistants to semantic search and question/answering, as well as categorization/classification of text, image understanding, and content generation.

The possibilities are endless, but we need YOUR help to make this happen faster :)

You can try the tool here to get a sense of its potential!

Our Team:

Co-founded by two MIT PhDs and backed by Y Combinator, Gradient Ventures, and Soma Capital (among many others!), we provide an unparalleled opportunity to be part of a fast-growing startup from the ground up, as you help us shape the product, culture, and future success of the company while learning about the most advanced AI models on earth.

What we are looking for

We need 10X engineers to make this happen! Both frontend and backend wizards (ideally full-stack developers) that can deliver on a daily basis in the high-paced environment that is our startup.

  • Expertise in front-end development using React + NextJS.
  • Proficiency in design and styling with Tailwind.

  • Solid understanding of contemporary deep learning models (GPT, LLAMA, BERT, Whisper, Stable Diffusion, etc).
  • Ability to understand user pains and experiences, and translate them into features and products.
  • Comfort engaging with customers and adapting to a fast-paced iterative environment.

Beyond current skills, what we value the most is your ability to remain curious and open to learning new skills.As a founding engineer, you may need to wear many hats.

  • Supabase (for auth/storage)
  • Databases: Postgres + MongoDB

Machine Learning:

What We Offer

  • A competitive salary and equity package, reflecting your contribution to our company's early growth.
  • Comprehensive health, dental, and vision insurance.
  • A collaborative work environment where you can learn from and contribute to a top-tier team.
