Who are we?
Our mission is to scale intelligence to serve humanity. We’re training and deploying frontier models for developers and enterprises who are building AI systems to power magical experiences like semantic search, RAG, and agents.

  • Work with product managers, tech leads, and machine learning engineers to build out engineering plans or capture requirements.
  • Manage the team's workload and priorities, ensuring timely delivery of projects.
  • Mentor and coach team members, providing guidance on technical and career development.

You may be a good fit if:

  • You have a proven track record as a people leader (3+ years of experience in engineering management); you are passionate about building rapport with your team and you prioritize 1:1s.
  • You have hands-on experience with large language models (LLMs).
  • You have experience developing large foundation models, distributed training infrastructure, and/or inference frameworks.
  • You have excellent presentation and communication skills; comfortable explaining technical topics to non-technical users or members of other teams.

If some of the above doesn’t line up perfectly with your experience, we still encourage you to apply! If you consider yourself a thoughtful worker, a lifelong learner, and a kind and playful team member, Cohere is the place for you.
