Job Description

About Us

We have a lot of customers and profit for a startup. Your position with us is secure. We are not a lost ship, hoping to discover product-market-fit island. We are on the island. Come join us. Our GPU marketplace powers AI projects and businesses all over the world.

We are bootstrapped. Your comp includes generous equity. Equity that investors haven't yet been able to purchase.

The journey to our destiny will not be easy. Our goal is not the safe harbor of today. You will be taxed, and you will be pushed. We love to work. We can't help it; we are witnessing the birth of AGI.

All technical roles report to Jake Cannell, the CEO and founder. Jake is a prolific writer and thinker on the subject of AI. Two examples from Less Wrong: LOVE in a simbox is all you need (09/28/2022) and The Brain as a Universal Learning Machine (06/24/2015).

We are currently a remote first company. Our headquarters are in Los Angeles.

About the Role

The ideal canidate will be a self-starter and able to work in a fast paced environment with less structure than a typical larger organization.
