Simli exists to make human-computer interaction, well, human. By enabling every developer to build real-time audio-visual conversations and experiences with AI avatars.

Written language as a mode of communication is less than 10,000 years old. We have evolved to communicate using speech and vision, 80% of the information we process is audio-visual, 80% of the media we consume is audio-visual, and 80% of the neurons dedicated to perception are in the visual cortex. We are visual beings, and we need AI avatars we interact with to have a visual representation.

The Role

As a Machine Learning Engineer at Simli, you will be at the forefront of developing and integrating cutting-edge generative AI technologies into our audio-visual conversation platforms. Your role focuses on creating and improving real-time AI interaction systems. You will be pivotal in developing and refining machine learning models, including large language models (LLMs), text-to-speech (TTS), and advanced audio-visual processing algorithms. These will be both building on 3rd party apis, open-source models as well as proprietary ones. This position is instrumental in shaping the future of human-AI interactions, with a strong emphasis on visual and auditory perception.

Responsibilities Include

  • Developing low latency AI interaction systems, focusing on improvement of indvidual components of the system including, LLM's, TTS, speech-2-3D, and 3D to video. As well as the system in its entirety.
  • Architecting and implementing APIs.
  • Leading the deployment of our ML APIs on cloud infrastructure, including GPU-accelerated inference.
  • Collaborating closely with the AI model development team.
  • Guiding and delegating tasks to junior developers.
  • Actively participating in hiring new tech team talent.

We are looking for an individual with:

  • A track record of building, training, and putting ml models in production.
  • Track record of shipping high-quality software.
  • Exceptional coding skills.
  • Experience in creating and executing technical product roadmaps.
  • Experience with cloud infrastructure and docker.
  • Solid background in Python, Pytorch.
  • Experience working across various forms of backend development
  • Expertise in API development and deployment.
  • Proficiency in low-level programming, optimization, cuda is huge plus.

What we offer:

  1. Option to work remotely or in offices in Oslo, Norway
  2. Equity package
  3. Opportunity and budget for attending tech and academic conferences.
  4. Budget for co-working space if remote
