About the Work

Company Stage: Seed

Keywords: React

Term: 3-6 months

Hours per week: 40

Timeline: Immediate

Geographic Constraints: NYC-based candidates strongly preferred


We’re working with a seed stage company that is building software for insurance underwriters. They’re using langchain to compile data for underwriters on a per policy basis and then a fine-tuned LLM to offer up conversational interface that underwriters can use to better understand the viability of a given policy.

They’re looking for an engineer to own their frontend, would be a bonus if you could potentially help out on their rails api too.

You’d be working alongside the CEO, the CTO, a web-focused engineer, and an ops-focused engineer. If you’re open to it, there’d be an opportunity for you to take a full time job after the first 3 months.
