Backed by Sequoia Capital, Y-Combinator, and other top valley firms, our team has raised $25m to revolutionizing modern marketing and product experiences with AI videos. 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 an experienced ML-focused Software Engineer to work with the applied ML team. Our ideal partner-in-crime works well in startup environments, is comfortable wearing many hats, and is always down to take calculated risks. We're moving fast and not looking for people to come along for the ride - we're looking for people to pave the path.

Your Mission 🚀

  • Develop new features for Tavus utilizing computer vision and NLP models
  • Take ownership of some key ML Ops items such as testing, CI/CD, or data processing pipelines
  • Design and test new experiments to improve our core generative AI models
  • Improve our existing technical foundations, and influence our technical direction and strategy


  • Self starter with a "get-stuff-done" attitude, highly motivated, and eager to learn
  • At least 2-3 years of industry experience in software development or adjacent positions
  • Deep experience with Python and PyTorch
  • Knowledgable about video processing or video streaming
  • Excellent interpersonal and communication skills

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

  • Infrastructure and architecture experience (dev-ops, ml-ops)
  • Experience developing low-latency applications (algorithm optimization, threading, multiprocessing, queue systems)
  • Have trained or fine-tuned your own LLM
  • Experience implementing research papers
  • Have played Portal 1 and 2 (if not you'll need to play as part of onboarding 😄)


When you join Tavus, you’re joining a family. Our work is driven by our team, and our success is shared by all. This position has a flexible work schedule, unlimited PTO, competitive healthcare and gear stipends, as well as, of course, plenty of fun! At the end of the day, we want Tavus to be a place for you to learn, directly drive impact, and be with a team you love.
