An Insider's view of Engineer.ai

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Engineer.ai LA is a bunch of hardworking people in open and fun atmosphere. We're playful - we bond over our favorite food trucks and spar over who controls the office playlist. Calling us a family may be cliche, but it's pretty accurate.

Customer Product Expert

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Through our Builder product, we’re making software accessible to everyone. It’s cool because software engineering has been disrupting industries since the 1980s but never evolving its own and I’m excited to be a part of the team that’s doing just that.

Alex

Global Vice President of Engineering

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

My career has grown leaps and bounds since being at Engineer.ai. When I first started, my focus was primarily on lead generation and business development. My role since then has transformed into much more as I've had the opportunity to dabble in sales, partnership related initiatives and product management to some extent.

We start with why in everything we do, it's part of our core DNA. We want everyone to be entrepreneurial.
