Obie.ai Jobs

Software Developer
Hamilton, Ontario, San Jose, California, Remote

Introduction

20% of time at work is wasted looking for the information you need to do your job. This costs companies millions of dollars in productivity losses every year. Unfortunately, existing products convince these companies to create yet another "silo" of information with their new-age "knowledge platform".

With Obie, our customers create one single source of truth for company knowledge and documentation. Obie enables these organizations to connect the knowledge and tools they already use within seconds. Obie also captures knowledge from conversations that happen at work—before it's lost.

So, when questions are asked, Obie proactively suggests relevant answers or documents where people work. Instead of digging through file folders on Google Drive or interrupting a colleague, ask Obie a question and he will provide you with an answer in seconds, not hours.

Our team is looking for high performance full-stack software developers with an entrepreneurial mindset. As a software developer at Obie.ai, you will help our customers find the full potential of their employees by enabling better access to knowledge with our solutions. You will write production-grade code for Obie products in collaboration with product and design teams. This role will allow you to apply your passion for problem solving and consult clients on creating and optimizing knowledge management processes. At Obie.ai, you will undoubtedly wear many hats and will often work on multiple projects at once. The ideal candidate would have a propensity for a fast-paced, iterative and volatile product environment. 

Company

At Obie.ai our mission is to make company knowledge more accessible and useful. We use AI to surface knowledge from silos and deliver it where questions are asked, speeding up internal support and accelerating growth for mid-sized companies.

While we are backed by amazing investors, both north and south of the border, we pride ourselves on building a sustainable business. Our small and scrappy team has an abundance of passion and grit for the problems we all face accessing knowledge at work. We offer competitive salaries, stock options and a laid-back work environment. We are headquartered in Hamilton, ON (Canada) as well as a location in San Jose, California (USA). With such close proximity to the most innovative companies in both Canada and the United States, we enjoy learning from and promoting a healthy technology ecosystem. We also offer flexible benefits, endless coffee and LaCroix to keep you alert and refreshed.

We are looking for self-starters, honest and hardworking individuals who are interested in joining us on our vision to make Obie the most intelligent solution for learning anything at work.
