X2 builds mental health chatbots, which are proven in many research studies to lower symptoms of anxiety and depression. We believe that combining these AI chatbots with traditional therapy, is the only way to get everyone the care they need - but right now, cannot afford. We just finished our Series A and are scaling to keep up with user growth - spurred by COVID.
At X2 you get to work with a small but diverse team that includes senior engineers, researchers, and psychologists.
The engineering team at X2 comes from strong technical backgrounds, and share a passion to make a positive impact in the lives of the 29,000,000 people who have paid access to our service. In your role, you will have the opportunity to lead, mentor, and grow this team and have a huge impact in the early stages of a consumer product.
Joey Trevino who built the foundation of online bank Chime ($5.8B valuation) retired and is our previous VP Eng. He led a complete rewrite of our codebase, so it has very little technical debt, which allows for adding new features rapidly. We use Python on the back-end and React on the front-end. Our UI mainly consists of text chats on different communication channels and a content creation/training platform for psychologists.
Research is at the core of what we do. We have published 7 research papers, and have 13 more studies in the works. The engineering team’s work directly influences how much symptoms of our users are reduced, of which the results will get published.
We are looking for a Lead Engineer to join our team in San Francisco and lead the architecture and development of X2AI's natural language processing engine. You will partner closely with psychologists to create a natural speaking AI named Tess who helps people talk over psychological issues.
We'd love to hear from you if:
+ You have a strong background in natural language processing, statistical modeling, and/or machine learning
+ You have built and deployed services at scale
+ You've worked on products where experimentation and data science are core to development
+ You're committed to quality as a top priority, including security and performance
+ You have a point of view but are low ego
+ You have a track record of trying and learning new things
We're not looking for ninjas or rock stars. We want an awesome and trustworthy engineer to lead our most critical investments in emotions, psychology and natural language, from architecture all the way through implementation.
X2AI embraces diversity and equal opportunity in a serious way. We are committed to building a team that represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and skills. The more inclusive we are, the better our work will be.
