Senior AI/ML Engineer
About the role
Dash AI is an intelligent assistant designed to integrate with your workflow seamlessly. It connects with your work apps to instantly answer work-related questions, generate content, debug code, summarize emails and projects, find documents, and more. It's like having a copilot for work that's just one click away.
We’re on a path to redesigning the future of knowledge sharing at work. We have a unique opportunity to build a category-defining product (and company!) that millions use daily.
We have reached a pivotal stage in our journey:
After launching our knowledge assistant for work in July, we're now growing our customer base and product rapidly
We've raised over $9.5m from top investors in Silicon Valley, such as Y Combinator, and founders/operators from companies like Dropbox, Retool, and Twitch.
We have a small but exceptional team with high talent density from Stanford AI Lab, Meta AI, DoorDash, Instacart, and Amazon.
Joining right now would mean you ride the wave of explosive top-of-the-funnel growth yet get meaningful equity in a pre-series A startup.

You'll get to drive key product initiatives end to end and work alongside exceptionally strong co-workers who learn quickly and ship quality work.
