👋 TL;DR: we're looking for experienced engineers to join our team and work with a strong focus on SRE, Platform Engineering and our Developer Experience.
Who are we?
On a mission to make video easy for anyone …
Synthesia is the world’s #1 AI video generation platform. Well, it’s actually a video production studio — in a browser, no cameras or film crews at all. You choose an avatar, enter your script in one of 120 languages, and your video is ready in minutes.
In Synthesia, you can build persoalised on-the-fly videos, give your chatbot a human face or run 24/7 weather channels in different languages, to name just a few of the possibilities.
We believe the future of media is synthetic, and we are on a mission to turn cameras into code and make everyone a creator.
Who are we hiring?
We’re looking for a seasoned engineer with a strong SRE or Platform Engineering focus to join our team support our product engineering teams.
Today we’re a small team who all get stuck in, but we’re structuring our work so that as we scale people have a natural alignment to a future team structure.
What does that really mean? When you join you’ll focus on a type of work (SRE, Platform Engineering or Developer Experience) with an 80/20 split on your area and everything else. We’ve written about this recently on LinkedIn.
We are looking for people who have been though the scale-up process before. We’re a Product organisation of 50, having more than doubled in the last year. During that time we’ve close to 10x’d our transaction rate. We expect to see similar growth over the next few years.
We’re not just a SaaS product running high-volume CRUD type transactions, we also have long-running, resource intensive AI workloads, both training and inference, at scale. We work closely with teams in Product Engineering, AI R&D, MLOps and Security.
As a member of the team you will…
We use a wide range of technologies, and we can’t all be experts in all of them, so if you don’t hit every box on this list, we’d still encourage you to apply.
