Senior Backend Engineer
We are a well funded, early stage startup led by serial entrepreneurs with over $1B in exits to Salesforce and Microsoft. Checksum.ai is at the forefront of artificial intelligence, applying most recent innovations in the field to help companies ship bug-free software, fast. We’re assembling a powerful engineering team that will lay the foundations for the company’s future.
We are looking for a creative, self motivated and results-driven developer who will join the founding team to work on this one of a kind challenge. Passionate about experimenting with different approaches, drafting and testing algorithms, alongside designing and delivering high quality software, preferably with zero-to-one experience.

Your knowledge and experience allow you to stay organized and efficient in a typical dynamic and “noisy” startup environment. You’re a team player and most probably also a leader and mentor. Finally, the thought of joining an early-stage startup makes you feel excited taking into account the responsibility and hard work it entails en route to success.
