We're on the lookout for a seasoned Senior Software Engineer who is passionate about Large Language Models (LLMs), their architectures, and advanced prompting techniques.

Having successfully secured their pre-seed funding, my client is poised to expand thier team. Joining now means you'll be at the heart of shaping not only the products but the company culture as well. The two co-founders bring a wealth of experience from leading tech giants and have a proven track record of scaling startups. They remain deeply involved in both product and engineering aspects and are committed to building both outstanding products and a stellar team.

  • You should be proactive, well-organized, and capable of working effectively in a fast-paced, small team environment.


  • Bachelor’s or Master's degree in Computer Science or Software Engineering.
  • Proficiency in object-oriented programming languages such as Java, C++, or Python.
  • Experience with natural language processing or prompt generation systems is highly desirable.
  • A good understanding of the latest research in prompt engineering and generative AI models, especially LLMs.
  • Familiarity with machine learning algorithms and data structures.
  • Proficient in cloud-based deployments.
  • Knowledge of Software Development Cycle methodologies and tools.
  • Understanding of the DevOps process.
  • Must be eligible to work in the UK (visa sponsorship not available).
