  • About the role


    AI Engineer role at a startup backed by Y Combinator and leading VCs, building tools that help software engineers modernise, write and understand legacy code.


    bloop's automatic code translation solution automates the menial task of converting code from one language to another. Existing code translators output code that is unreadable, and the alternative of rewriting an old system from scratch in a new language is unfeasibly expensive for many projects. We're pioneering a novel approach to this age-old problem, building on our expertise in solving coding problems with LLMs.

    What’s the role?

    We're automating code translation between programming languages. To do this we're developing pipelines that combine transpilers and LLMs which scale to support massive amounts of code.

    You'll work at the heart of this, collaborating with a small, talented team to design and implement the core engine that powers the pipeline. You'll work on the forefront of applied AI, transpiler design, automated testing, and static analysis.

    You'll love what we're working on if you're interested in:

    • LLM Agents
    • New LLM models and architectures
    • Data curation, generation, and fine-tuning
    • Programming languages and compilers

    You'll be joining a small group of engineers who are obsessed with the challenges posed by code translation, and who want to build tools to improve the process of writing and maintaining software.

    Key requirements

    • Proficiency with the modern LLM stack
    • Experience evaluating LLM pipelines
    • Experience fine-tuning models (e.g. PyTorch/Axolotl)
    • Understanding of programming language design
    • (Bonus) Rust experience

    Benefits and Perks

    • Up to ~0.5% options
    • Competitive salary
    • 25 days holiday, in addition to bank holidays
    • Top tier private medical insurance
