About r2c
Our mission is to make world-class software security available to everyone. This means building program analysis tools that are open source, easy to use, powerful, and fast. It also means building a team with security expertise and a passion for great developer experiences. Most of all, it means working with honesty and respect in a diverse community of dreamers and builders. We’ve redefined static analysis tooling by committing to all of these, and turned our project, Semgrep, into an essential safeguard for code at Snowflake, Dropbox, and more.
As one of our first AI Product Engineers, you will use the rapidly changing tools from leading AI/ML platform companies such as OpenAI, Anthropic, Hugging Face, Amazon, Google, along with training our own ML models to build a compounding value-add for developers in Semgrep. Your mission is to augment the security engineers and developers as they write secure software and find critical vulnerabilities. The team will tend to use high-level tools such as ChatGPT and LangChain, versus doing low-level machine learning research.

What you'll do

    • Integrate AI platform APIs into the product
    • Develop prompt chains for LLMs
    • Experiment with the latest technology advances and understand how they can be leveraged into the product
    • Train and fine-tune the ML models using human and machine-generated data

You are ideal for this role if you have:

    • Curiosity and a love of new technologies
    • Deep passion for developer tools and the engineering workflow
    • Experience hacking with GPT-4, Codex, or other LLMs
    • Experience with ML algorithms and/or research
    • Experience working in a startup or fast-paced environment, comfortable with discarding prototypes weekly
    • Comfortable with coding in Python
    • Interest in prompt engineering and vector databases
    • Code security interest is a plus but not a requirement
    • College degree is not a requirement
$134,000 - $202,000 a year
Our compensation package includes equity and benefits in addition to salary.

What we offer
Our goal is to competitively and fairly compensate every r2cer with a system that equally rewards those who are vocal and those who are less comfortable making demands during the final steps of the hiring process. To that end, we generate internal compensation bands that are used when discussing and negotiating salaries. We update these based on market data to make sure they’re above the average for comparable roles.
We also invest in our employees’ well-being and long term success with comprehensive health plans, generous vacation time, learning stipends, and more. Our benefits are for everyone, so that you’re taken care of, and we work with individuals to make sure they have what they need, whether that’s quiet work space, adjusted hours, or any other accommodation.
Who we are
We have people from France and the Philippines, physics and philosophy, formal methods research and full fledged corporations. We’re new parents and new grads, aspiring authors and adrenaline addicts, dog lovers and dogfooders. We get together often to bike, bake, and meet up in parks. In our interactions, we believe respect and honesty go hand in hand, and prioritize both.
