Some of the technical problems we solve include modelling the intricacies of a human conversation and enabling automated human-like responses by mapping the context of an email conversation. We are based in Singapore, but are a 100% WFH (Work From Home), fully remote company.

  • You take ownership of projects and drive them to conclusion 

  • You’re a good communicator and capable of not just doing the work, but teaching others and explaining the “why” behind complicated technical decisions

  • You aren’t afraid to roll up your sleeves. This role will evolve over time and we want you to evolve with it
