About poolside

poolside is pursuing AGI. Only very few companies in the world are able to be in this race - we’re early in our journey which makes it a great time to join the team but we also have scale-up+ needs when it comes to product and engineering. We can tell you why over the phone...

About our team

We are a remote-first team that sits across Europe and North America. We come together once a month in-person for 3 days, always Monday-Wednesday. We also do longer off-sites twice a year.

Our team is a combination of more research and more engineering-oriented profiles, however, everyone deeply cares about the quality of the systems we build and has a strong underlying knowledge of software development. We believe that good engineering leads to faster development iterations, which allows us to compound our efforts.

About the role

Reinforcement Learning from Code Execution Feedback (RLCEF) is our method for enhancing our large language model by completing billions of tasks in tens of thousands of real world software projects (soon millions). You will be working on poolside's code execution platform that powers RLCEF.

Your mission

Build a scalable platform that can support poolside's fine tuning efforts by code execution and static analysis.


On this team you will build our code execution platform which involves working with container runtimes, static code analyzers, parsers and distributed data systems.
