Senior Backend Developer

Job description

Ai Software is building an artificial intelligence platform to transform the modern workforce. Think of it like a Siri or Alexa for work, but with secure access to all your apps, documents and your institutional knowledge. Our Ai platform “Jane” is a virtual team member that everyone can chat with to access information and streamline processes. We are integrated with a who’s who of apps including Google Drive, Box, Salesforce, Zenefits, Office 365, Tableau, DOMO and 40+ others.  We support new ideas, collaboration, and the ownership of our product throughout the organization.

Ai Software engineers enjoy the opportunity and benefits of working at an early-stage artificial intelligence startup, but in an environment much more akin to a later stage company given the experience of the founding team. The culture at Ai Software encourages innovation, independent problem solving, and collaboration as we continue to mature our product in the ever-changing work of AI.

Ai Software is funded by the incubator.  As part of our dedication to the St. Louis community, Ai Software is partnered with Create a Loop, a nonprofit focused on teaching kids computer science.
