About Sorcero

Sorcero is a DC-based enterprise knowledge and learning startup developing and deploying novel hybrid AI architectures to support just-in-time point-of-pain interactive organizational learning.

This is an opportunity to work with MIT Media Lab senior scientists engaging with high-profile enterprise customers to create something genuinely new and significant.

 

Job Opportunity

You will work with our in-house and contracted platform development team, and work with our technology team to build a ground-breaking knowledge platform. 

We are looking for an engineer as passionate as we are about transforming how learning is delivered and employment success is achieved.

  • This role will report to the CTO. The AI engineer will be based remotely in Mumbai, India but will need to work during business hours on eastern time on some days.
  • We are offering a competitive base salary/benefits package and equity.

 

Requirements 

  • Have at least three years  (two if you don’t sleep very much) of recent experience in Python

  • Can communicate and work well with non-technical or less-technical folks;
  • Aren’t afraid of a little math now and then;
