We’re working with a company that’s using LLMs to streamline the workflows related to the evaluation and analysis of risk. They have several contracts in place with large enterprise companies with SLAs and are looking for an SRE to work within their existing platform team to help them continue to increase the reliability of their infrastructure. The engineering team as a whole is around 10 at the moment including 3 other folks working through Forward.

If the role extends past 3 months it’s very likely you’ll get experience standing up and implementing observability for self-hosted LLMs.
