Job Description





We are seeking a software engineer to join our product team and assist in the development of interfaces and APIs for interacting with massive language models. You will collaborate with an engineering and research team to create and implement essential components of our product and platform.



About Anthropic

Anthropic is an AI safety and research firm that is striving to create AI systems that are dependable, interpretable, and steerable. We want artificial intelligence to be safe and useful to both our consumers and society as a whole. Our multidisciplinary team has expertise in machine learning, physics, policy, business, and product development.





  • Create API core components to access huge language models.


  • Create billing, email, and other third-party connectors.


  • Create conversational interfaces that make use of language models.


  • Improve the API and interfaces for performance, robustness, and usability.


  • Use tools and techniques to track model behaviour and performance.


  • Collaborate with researchers to improve interfaces based on real-world user interactions.


You could be a good match if you:


  • 2+ years of experience as a software engineer, preferably in the development of APIs and/or interfaces


  • Strong coding abilities and familiarity with service-oriented architectures are required.


  • Take a product-focused approach, focusing on creating solutions that are robust, scalable, and simple to use.


  • Work with a fast-paced team to solve cutting-edge AI safety and conversational AI concerns.


  • Have fun with pair programming (we love it!)



Strong candidates may also include:


  • Have prior experience with NLP and ML models and understand their strengths and limits


  • Have knowledge with REST APIs


  • Have knowledge of react and frontend frameworks.


  • Have containerisation and DevOps experience


  • Have QA and testing automation experience


  • Have knowledge of best practices for privacy and security.



Annual wage

This post is projected to pay between $300,000 and $520,000 USD.


We currently expect all staff to be in our office at least 25% of the time under our hybrid policy. Visas are sponsored by us! However, we are unable to sponsor visas for every role and every candidate; operations roles are particularly challenging to fund. However, if we make you an offer, we will make every attempt to get you to the United States, and we will hire an immigration lawyer to assist us in this.


We encourage you to apply even if you do not believe you meet all of the requirements.Not all strong applicants will meet every single requirement. According to research, persons who identify as members of underrepresented groups are more likely to experience impostor syndrome and doubt the validity of their candidature, therefore we advise you not to rule yourself out early and to apply if you’re interested in this job. We believe that AI systems like the ones we’re developing have massive social and ethical ramifications. We believe that this emphasises the importance of representation even more, and we endeavour to incorporate a varied spectrum of opinions on our staff.

The amount of pay within the range will be determined by a number of job-related elements, including your position on our internal performance ladders, which are based on factors such as previous work experience, applicable education, and success on our interviews or in a work trial.

What makes us unique

We believe that big science will have the greatest impact on AI development. Anthropic works as a coherent team on a few large-scale research projects. And, rather than working on smaller and more particular puzzles, we value effect – furthering our long-term goals of steerable, trustworthy AI. We see AI research as an empirical science that shares as much in common with physics and biology as it does with traditional computer science efforts. We’re a very collaborative group, and we hold frequent research discussions to ensure that we’re working on the most impactful projects at all times. As a result, we place a high priority on communication abilities. We do not distinguish between engineering and research, and all of our technical team is expected to contribute to both as needed.

Reading our current research is the simplest method to understand our research directions. Many of the directions our team worked on prior to Anthropic are continued in this research, including: GPT-3, Circuit-Based Interpretability, Multimodal Neurons, Scaling Laws, AI & Compute, Concrete Problems in AI Safety, and Learning from Human Preferences.

Come collaborate with us!

Anthropic is a non-profit organisation situated in San Francisco. We provide competitive pay and benefits, as well as optional equity donation matching, substantial vacation and parental leave, flexible working hours, and a great office space in which to engage with colleagues.
