Who We Are

At Gretel, we’re building a generative AI platform for synthetic data. Gretel’s APIs automatically fine-tune AI models to generate synthetic data on demand while protecting privacy and maintaining the utility and accuracy of the original data. Our synthetic data platform solves the data bottleneck problem for developers, data scientists, and AI/ML researchers across multiple modalities including tabular, time-series, relational, language and image. We're looking for talented backend Software Engineer to join our mission!

The Impact You Will Have

At Gretel, you will be working on ways to make access to data safer, easier and faster without compromising privacy. You'll be building cutting-edge technology to automate the process of synthetic data generation that is provably private.

What You Will Do

  • Be a core contributor of code, tests, and application/data/systems architecture on a small team of engineers working across the stack
  • Own both customer and developer happiness for your products in production, working with your own and other teams to build operational transparency and resiliency into every layer of deployed applications
  • Coordinate with engineering and product leads to define, prioritize, and task projects that help us meet business objectives
  • Provide technical leadership, mentorship, pairing opportunities, and code reviews to encourage the growth of others

Basic Qualifications

  • At least 7 years of professional experience in software development
  • At least 5 years of experience with scalable, API based agent or service oriented software architecture
  • Experience with agile development methodologies for continuous development of product and technology
  • Experience leading the delivery of large-scale distributed systems
  • Strong communication skills - you speak, and write, your mind well. We’re a distributed team so we’re extra mindful about communication

Preferred Qualifications

  • B.S. in Computer Science, Math, or an algorithmic-centric discipline
  • Experience building applications with Python, Java and/or Go
  • Experience building cloud-scale applications in AWS and/or GCP
  • Experience building containerized applications with Docker/Kubernetes
