We achieve this by providing a set of end-to-end solutions to use-cases in Natural Language Processing and Computer Vision powered by Deep Learning (DL) and exposed via easy-to-use public APIs. The platform currently supports different types of models such as Vision (Image Detection & Classification, OCR, PDF parser etc) and Text (Intent, NER, Sentiment etc). Chatbots, Industries, Marketing Cloud are a few important consumers of our APIs to power their deep learning capabilities.

The Team

We have a real fun team that is extremely smart and motivated and they are looking for equally motivated Platform engineers with experience building large-scale deep learning training and real-time serving pipelines, to help us get to the next level, and build a platform that scales to thousands of customers, and billions of predictions per day.

We're looking for strong candidates with a beginner's mindset ready to innovate, iterate, and deliver GA quality services!


  • Own the end to end architecture of the Einstein.AI Platform and build the technology for scaling the Einstein.AI Platform to thousands of Salesforce customers, and millions of predictions per day.

  • Partner with Product Managers and Data Scientists to understand customer requirements and design prototypes and bring ideas to production

  • Develop compute and data infrastructure capable of ingesting and processing customer data from different sources at scale in batch and real-time

  • We are a growing, diverse team and we work together on projects. We love to collaborate and help each other, and we want someone to share that ideology.

No school could prepare you for all of these, so you need to be very quick on your feet.

  • You should be a self-starter who can see the big picture, and prioritize your work to make the largest impact on the business’ and customer’s vision and requirements.

Preferred Skills
