Backed by Sequoia, Y-Combinator, and other top valley firms, our team is revolutionizing modern marketing and product experiences. Tavus is a leading AI synthetic media startup focused on making personalized video experiences scalable. Tavus uses artificial intelligence deepfake technology to generate realistic videos that perfectly imitate customer's gestures and voice- it's pretty stellar. Think Loom or Vidyard, but you can create thousands of hyper-personalized videos with the click of a button. Check it out for yourself 😎

We’re looking for a Machine Learning Engineer to join our core AI team. Our ideal partner-in-crime works well in startup environments, is comfortable prioritizing for themselves, and is always down to take calculated risks.

  • A passion for the AI field and keeping up to date
  • Ability to prioritize in a chaotic and ambiguous environment, while moving fast
  • Experience in at least one area of generative AI (LLMs, Audio, Video)

Additionally, having some of the following experiences may help you be successful in this position:

  • Experience owning the model development cycle end to end, from idea to production to iterating
