At SellScale, we are bringing artificial intelligence and NLP tools to sales teams around the world. The future of sales is going to be more personal — no more sequences, cold calling, door knocking. We believe that with the advent of recent technologies like generative languages models, stable diffusion, and generative voice, future sales teams are going to be significantly more efficient and personalized than they are today.
We develop software and ML tools that give go-to-market superpowers to sales development representatives (SDRs) and founders who are building the future.
Right now, we are in a huge computing gold rush! AI is going to supplement the next generation of creative operators and will reimagine every job function from design & coding to music & video. The tools we are building at SellScale will transform the ways companies achieve growth targets and ultimately make it so innovation can happen faster, and more efficiently than ever before.
🙏 About the role
Our team is looking for a full stack, founding engineer who can deliver premium grade products to our clients: growth teams. At SellScale, you’ll be working at the intersection of growth technology and cutting edge artificial intelligence. We use recent advancements like gNLP, transformers, fine-tuning, few shot learning to build tools that enable sales teams to move fast, more precisely, and deliver unprecedented results. If you love working on important, highly impactful problems at the frontier of technology, you will love working at SellScale.
