AI Researcher (Founding Engineer)

About us

We are a dynamic, newly funded stealth company on a mission to revolutionize the audit space (financial, IT, and ESG). Traditional audits involve tedious manual checks on unstructured data, frustrating both auditees and auditors. Meanwhile, the demand for audits is skyrocketing.

Our solution? Cutting-edge AI-automated software for auditors. As an AI-native company, we prioritize innovative AI research and outstanding UX to seamlessly guide our users through the AI automation journey.

We value trust, clear user value, fast-paced decision-making, and the joy of daily collaboration. We are looking for an outstanding Founding Engineer to join us in our brand new Berlin office.

Your Role

As a founding AI engineer, you will be at the heart of our technology and innovation. Working closely with our technical and product founders, you'll have the chance to:

  • Define ambitious goals for our AI products and identify key areas for improvement.
  • Lead the development and implementation of RAG (retrieval-augmented generation) pipelines.
  • Define, benchmark, and continually refine performance metrics with both short-term and long-term plans.

We're seeking someone with expertise in LLMs, retrieval-augmented generation, fine-tuning, and prompting techniques. Your contributions will be essential in propelling our AI advancements and securing our market position.


  • 5+ years of experience as an AI/ML engineer or comparable academic background
  • Proven track record in building complex RAG pipelines
  • Skilled in evaluating and benchmarking LLMs
  • Proficient in fine-tuning and reinforcement learning
  • Strong knowledge of prompting techniques
  • Fluent English


  • Published papers on relevant generative AI topics
  • Experience with search-related features
  • Prior experience in a startup environment


  • Competitive salary and equity package
  • Beautiful office in Berlin with home office days
  • Opportunity to join a small, agile team with a big mission
  • Significant growth and learning opportunities from day one
  • Be part of an inclusive, diverse workplace dedicated to innovation and excellence

We are unfortunately not able to sponsor visa - for this role, you will need to possess an existing EU/German work permit.

Join us, and let's build something amazing together! 🚀
