We have code review and automated tests. We have outstanding reliability that won’t keep you up at night and easily debuggable logs and alerts so you can react with confidence if anything goes wrong. Our engineering fundamentals are strong, and they let us explore challenging and valuable problems.

Frame is a professional and intellectual community, with supportive and talented people who are proud of what they build. Our collaborative environment is an ideal place to deliver to your potential while bringing more attention, listening, and understanding to the conversations people have with the companies serving their everyday needs.

This Role

As a Senior Platform Engineer at Frame, you will lead major projects supporting rapid growth in the conversations we ingest and in the quantity and sophistication of NLP models we deploy to help customers read and understand their conversations at scale. Frame ingests conversations in near real-time as they occur, and those messages cascade through a web of systems that provide incremental value for our customers. You will make sure every message receives the attention it deserves, and that the results of data cleaning and inference steps are available for efficient delivery to various endpoints including a visually engaging web application, HTTP endpoint triggers, and email alerts.

You will also design and implement high-impact projects to support growth such as introducing partitioning schemes into our data layer, increasing our resilience to service disruption scenarios, and enabling innovative new product functionality around semantic search and topic clustering. If you are not already experienced building AI/ML services, you will receive strong mentorship from our leadership team. You will also make sure that we continue to be exemplary integration partners with the biggest and most influential customer support tooling providers, and that we continue to expand the quantity and quality of data sources we ingest.
