From day one we’ll expect you jump in headfirst as we charge ahead in our product development, with two big responsibilities:

Who You Are:

  • An exceptional problem-solver with a passion for implementing the latest AI tech.
  • Rich experience building, deploying, and maintaining enterprise apps.
  • Driven to make an impact and build products responsive to user needs.
  • Eager to share knowledge and work collaboratively in a start-up environment.
  • Capable of juggling tasks across the stack and learning new tools and frameworks quickly.
  • A tinkerer and perfectionist with a strong bent toward working smart and getting products out the door.


Skills You Should Bring to the Table:


  • Backend Expertise: Professional experience building and deploying Django backends using the Django REST framework.
  • Frontend Expertise: Professional experience developing in React, implementing state management libraries, and using HTML and CSS.
  • SQL Knowledge: Strong grasp of SQL queries, ORM, and experience with relational databases like PostgreSQL.
  • Cloud Familiarity: Capable of deploying and securing applications in the cloud, particularly with AWS.
  • CI/CD Practices: Proficient in automated testing, various deployment strategies, and using logging and monitoring tools.


Skills That Would be Nice to Have:


  • Exposure to or hands-on experience implementing LLMs into application logic and optimizing their performance.
  • Exposure to or hands-on experience building applications using RAG architecture, and familiarity with vector databases like pgvector or Pinecone.
  • Familiarity with using user feedback to fine-tune LLMs.
  • Experience leading engineering projects or teams.
  • Familiarity with Node.js and Express.


Life at Delve Deep Learning:


Join us, and you’ll find yourself among a group of sharp, motivated teammates. We're as passionate about the potential of AI as we are about bringing those possibilities to life in a collaborative, transparent, and ethical way. You’ll find our team huddled around a white board mapping out our latest ideas, taking lunch breaks on our office rooftop, or trying our hand at new skills like mini golf during office social events. We often work together from our offices in downtown Washington, D.C. (where we also have a fitness center), though our hybrid work environment provides flexibility to help you stay sharp and focused. We also offer a suite of benefits including employee stock incentive plan, health insurance, 401(k) matching, and vacation days.
