Jobs at Kagi Search

Full-time positions

Core Back-end Team

  • Advanced knowledge of the Crystal language.
  • Exceptional problem-solving and coding abilities.
  • Crafting products with care

Core Front-end Team

  • Passion for creating delightful and swift user interfaces.
  • Proficiency in HTML, CSS, and an understanding that JavaScript can be used sparingly to enhance, not create, product experiences.
  • You are comfortable not using any FE frameworks, and rather like to be in full control of the DOM and as close to browser as possible.

Fun fact: At Kagi, we prioritize speed, to the point where all functionalities of Kagi Search (except Stripe checkout and Maps) work perfectly without JavaScript. We see JavaScript as a tool to enhance the UX, not create it.

Core ML Team

  • Deep understanding of machine learning tools and technologies, whether in the build/deploy or apply/customize layers.
  • Demonstrable expertise with modern large language models (LLMs), their deployment and/or advanced prompting techniques.
  • Experience in building noteworthy projects utilizing machine learning.

Core Design Team

  • Enthusiasm for diving deep into user feedback and discussions to improve UX.
  • Meticulous attention to detail in UX design.
  • A critical perspective on current search/assistant user interfaces, paired with a desire to revolutionize them.

General conditions

  • Flexible working conditions; remote first culture.
  • Our journey is filled with exciting challenges and ever-evolving processes. It's a bit of a rollercoaster, not for the feign-hearted.
  • Our ambition is enormous, going against industry giants with a very small team. You will work a lot.
  • We are completely user funded. Kagi is currently in one village worth of homes. Do not expect VC backed/big-tech salary. Do expect equity as a part of compensation.

Note: We are currently full, please check back later.

We are deeply committed to fostering a culture of research and development (R&D) at Kagi.

  • Proficiency in backend development with Python, Ruby, or Node.js, paired with expertise in crafting frontend interfaces using vanilla HTML, CSS, and JS.
  • Ability to dedicate 20 hours per week to R&D projects.
  • A proactive and self-organized working style, capable of thriving in a "fire & forget" mode.
  • A passion for building innovative projects from the ground up.
  • You can demonstrate a history of tinkering with product ideas/hacking projects together.

If you are eager to contribute to cutting-edge projects and grow with a dynamic team, we would be thrilled to hear from you.
