About the position

We’re hiring a frontend engineer to work with our small, full-stack team to build products to test, monitor, and improve the reliability of machine learning systems. Our users rely on our product interfaces to visualize and understand complex details about their ML models and datasets.


You’ll be our first dedicated frontend hire, and will be responsible for leading our frontend efforts to design, prototype, and implement UI features, as well as solidifying our frontend technologies to efficiently work with a full-stack engineering team.

We currently use vanilla JavaScript without a framework, though you might help us choose the right one. Some technologies we use are: Chart.js, D3, Annotorious, Treant, Bootstrap/Tailwind, Flask, Jinja.


No ML expertise is required for this role, though we hope you’re interested to dive deep into the emerging space of MLOps / trustworthy ML / responsible AI.

Our company, technology, and market are new and changing rapidly, so a large part of the job is to adapt and learn new things. We value learning fast over pre-existing knowledge (“slope is more important than y-intercept”).

You should have at least 3 years of frontend software engineering experience. We don’t require past experience with specific programming languages or frameworks.

We prioritize candidates in Tokyo, but may consider remote for exceptional candidates.

Nice to haves

These aren’t required, but be sure to mention them in your application if you have them.

You can work full-stack, you’re great at building interactive data visualizations, you’ve worked at a startup before, or you have experience with production machine learning.


As an early employee, you’ll own a significant equity stake in addition to your base salary.”
