Job Description

About Glean

We’re on a mission to make knowledge work faster and more humane. We believe that AI will fundamentally transform how people work. In the future, everyone will work in tandem with expert AI assistants who find knowledge, create and synthesize information, and execute work. These assistants will free people up to focus on the higher-level, creative aspects of their work.

We’re building a system of intelligence for every company in the world. On the surface, you can think of it as Google + ChatGPT for the enterprise. Under the hood, our platform is the connective tissue between AI and knowledge. It brings all of a company’s knowledge together, understands it at a deep level, provides industry-leading search relevance over it, and connects it to generative AI agents and applications.

Glean was founded by a seasoned team of former Google search and Facebook engineers who saw a need in the enterprise space for their technical depth and passion for AI. We’re a diverse team of curious and creative people who want to help each other get big things done—so we can help other teams do the same. 

We're backed by some of the Valley's leading venture capitalists—including Sequoia, Kleiner Perkins, Lightspeed, and General Catalyst—and have assembled a world-class team with senior leadership experience at Google, Slack, Facebook, Dropbox, Rubrik, Uber, Intercom, Pinterest, Palantir, and others.

  • Oversee the entirety of your features from inception to launch and beyond

  • Mentor more junior engineers or learn from battle tested ones

Who you are

  • BA/BS in computer science, or related degree
  • Experience with a highly polished consumer grade React.js app, or 4+ with any web app

Key knowledge and skills

  • Thrive in a customer-focused, tight-knit and cross-functional environment
  • A proactive and positive attitude to lead, learn, troubleshoot and take ownership of both small tasks and large features
  • Passionate about using open web technologies (HTML5/CSS/JS) to build pixel perfect, zero-latency, 60FPS user interfaces that run on all devices 
  • Comfortable in TypeScript, or JavaScript and type-curious
  • Experienced in or desire to master one or more of: Progressive Web Apps (PWA), Web Extensions, Electron, Capacitor, React, Redux, Webpack
