Senior Software Engineer, Platform


At Arcus, our mission is to advance AI through better data. We believe that data is the ultimate representation of the world and providing ML models with the highest fidelity representations is the most important challenge to solve for AI today. We’re advancing the state of the art in AI by ensuring that every model has the data it needs.

We’re building the comprehensive data platform that enables enterprises to build intelligent AI applications on their structured and unstructured data. From “chat over your data” to multi-modal, reasoning applications – Arcus scales to the complexity of any intelligent AI application. Arcus manages the data workflows needed to make large-scale, complex data useful for LLMs – from ingesting and indexing the data to providing retrieval and evaluation capabilities – Arcus supports even the most complex AI applications.

We’re extremely well-funded and backed by top tier VCs and angel investors who share our mission and we’re based out of our Flatiron office in NYC.

  • Excited to juggle multiple hats and work cross-functionally based on the needs of the business.
  • Bias towards shipping rapidly and iterating with customer feedback.
