Ready to join the x.ai team?

We’re a fast-growing band of data and science geeks, working out of our “garage” – swanky highrise in Downtown Manhattan – to invent something new! We’re looking for some of the best and brightest to join us.

Find a list of superheroes we are looking for below, but please pause and go read our pledge – it is the most important part of our on-boarding package and we want every new member to read it carefully, then read it again, and finally truly commit to it. We think it paints a very honest picture of who we are – and what we believe in.


Open Positions

At x.ai, we’re building an artificial intelligence powered personal assistant. The software schedules meetings for you, eliminating the email ping pong usually required to find a time and place to meet. You’ll get to work side by side with a group of focused and passionate people building the next generation of AI.

As Director of Content you’ll own all words from thought leadership to customer education to marketing emails and user flow copy. You’re a flexible writer, interested in AI (though you need not be an expert), able to be both a doer in the short term and a leader in the middle to long term. You’ll work closely with our Director of Customer Acquisition as well as our sales team. You’re creative, organized, and efficient. You’re not wedded to the SaaS content marketing playbook, or any playbook for that matter. You bring a healthy skepticism to business speak. You like telling stories.

Responsibilities

  • Develop a content strategy that serves our key objectives around customer acquisition and success and that's tailored to various platforms including Twitter, Medium, and Facebook
  • Execute the content strategy, including writing blog posts on a variety of topics ranging from the future of work to the etiquette of using an AI assistant and well beyond
  • Develop content that supports our sales effort that’s tailored to our key segments and their unique buying paths
  • Write copy for our marketing website, email campaigns, paid acquisition, and customer success efforts
  • Source and manage third-party content distribution partnerships that direct traffic to x.ai
  • Develop processes for creating content at scale that drives quantifiable impact including sourcing and managing freelancers

Qualifications

  • Published writer who can demonstrate a range of voices
  • 5+ years experience in a content marketing or editorial role
  • Track record of managing other creators (whether in house or freelance)
  • B.A.

We are building AI personal assistants (Amy and Andrew) that schedule meetings for you. This is a yet unsolved problem within AI, and a formidable technical challenge.

Our team has spent over 3 years building powerful, fundamental technology to allow us to solve the meeting scheduling problem. While we’ll always be working to make Amy and Andrew smarter, our next big challenge is scaling, to make them available to everyone in the world.

  • Mentor colleagues, participate in pair programming and skill-building, and generally raise the level of web application development expertise across our tech team

Qualifications

We are seeking an uncommonly talented new colleague to join our tech team and own the job of building web applications.

  • You are, above all, a senior software engineer with the maturity brought by 7+ years of experience.
  • You are a JavaScript expert. You have opinions about JavaScript frameworks, even if you don’t know ours.
  • You know backend programming in some language. We use Node.js, Scala, and Python (so experience in any of those is a bonus).
  • You have non-trivial database experience. We use MongoDB, so experience with a document database is ideal.
  • You’ve used some modern cloud infrastructure to deploy and operate applications. We use AWS and a Mesos stack using Docker.

Why x.ai?

  • Self-managed and flexible paid time off - vacation & sick time
  • Solid Healthcare
