Backend Engineer Elevenlabs. This role is remote, so it can be executed globally. However, to facilitate working with the engineering team we strongly prefer candidates on the East Coast or in Europe (NY/London/Warsaw/Berlin).. About ElevenLabs. ElevenLabs is a growth-stage startup that has built the most advanced AI voice models and AI voice products (text to speech, audiobooks creation, dubbing, and the voice library).. We launched in January 2023 and have since reached over 1 million users and partnered with the world’s largest publishers (The New Yorker, The Washington Post, The Atlantic), media companies (Super Hi-Fi, D-ID, Futuri), and gaming studios (Paradox, Cloud Imperium Games, Don’t Nod). We are backed by the leading names in tech and AI (Nat Fridman, Daniel Gross, Andreessen Horowitz, Instagram co-founder Mike Krieger, Oculus VR co-founder Brendan Iribe, Deepmind & Inflection co-founder Mustafa Suleyman, and many others).. We have a unique mix of in-house cutting-edge machine learning research (led by our co-founder Piotr, who was previously a researcher at Google) and strong product-led traction (led by our co-founder Mati, who was at Palantir before and after the IPO). . We have recently concluded our successful Series-B funding round and are hiring to double down on our initial traction to make ElevenLabs a truly generational product company and research lab..

You are a highly motivated and driven individual with a strong work ethic. Our team is committed to going the extra mile, even if it means working long nights and weekends to achieve our goals. You strive for excellence in every aspect of work, consistently taking ownership of your outcomes and overdelivering on goals. Have a humble attitude and are eager to learn whatever it might take to help your team and our customers succeed.. What you bring. We do not require any formal experience, certifications, or degrees.

As long as you are able to cover them, we support your preferred location.. Huge impact; there’s no endless debugging or refactoring of legacy code. You’ll ship features impacting millions of users, and contribute to the infrastructure supporting it all.. Extraordinary team; we favor ambitious, smart people striving for outsized impact. You’ll work on the state of the art surrounded by people with extraordinary skills and positive attitudes.. Competitive compensation and stock options..
