We are looking for a Senior Software Engineer to join the Metis team. We are responsible for Metis, the cloud-based scalable architecture for NeuralSearch, our AI search engine, which incorporates both keyword and vector search.

  • Experience designing and operating distributed systems in production
  • Experience working with large datasets and high traffic
  • Rigor in high code quality, automated testing, and other engineering best practices
