About Labelbox

Accelerating the development of AI products with unstructured data.

Current Labelbox customers are transforming industries within insurance, retail, manufacturing/robotics, healthcare, and beyond. Our platform is used by Fortune 500 enterprises including Allstate, Black + Decker, Bayer, Warner Brothers and leading AI-focused companies including FLIR Systems and Caption Health. We are backed by leading investors including SoftBank, Andreessen Horowitz, B Capital, Gradient Ventures (Google’s AI-focused fund), Databricks Ventures, Snowpoint Ventures and Kleiner Perkins.
In machine learning, data curation is only part of the battle to create a successful model. Once a model is trained, it needs to be tested and evaluated for performance. A model may perform well at predicting one particular type of classification, but struggle on another. This can occur due to a variety of factors, including poorly labeled or missing training data of specific classifications.
At Labelbox, the Active Learning team’s mission is to build products and workflows to surface insights into model performance after completing the training process. We seek to give machine learning engineers and data scientists the tools they need to validate models against ground truth data, spot model inaccuracies, identify gaps in cohorts of training data, and initiate workflows to improve that data.

About the Role:

As a senior backend engineer on the SDK team, you will work with fellow engineers and product managers to design and build the interfaces and experiences that our users leverage to programmatically accomplish their workflows within Labelbox. You will seek to understand the current workflows of data scientists and machine learning engineers, and design elegant and easy to use public API’s to accomplish those goals. You will design and build scalable and flexible systems to automate the processing of large quantities of data to surface valuable insights. You will be expected to utilize the full range of design, modeling, and execution skills to create useful and performant interfaces for our products and customers.

About You:

  • You have significant experience in python and javascript (Typescript a plus!), or other modern scalable languages for web service development.
  • You have experience designing microservices and external facing API’s using REST and other interfaces for public usage.
  • You are driven to independently deliver impactful product and engineering initiatives and have previously owned major projects from design to implementation
  • You appreciate a fast-paced environment that takes an iterative approach to product development.

Nice To Have:

  • Experience designing MySQL, PostgreSQL, or equivalent databases.
  • Experience working with CI/CD systems, building test and release automation.
  • Experience building workflows for data science and machine learning development.

We hire great people regardless of where they live. Work wherever you’d like as reliable internet access is our only requirement. We communicate asynchronously, work autonomously, and take ownership of our work.
