About Engineering at Lilt
Lilt is a high-performance, large-scale language translation system. We invest in and prioritize workflow (i.e., usability and interface design) and backend AI systems. Since the translation workforce is distributed worldwide, there are interesting cloud engineering problems to solve. We have a strong preference for building our own backend technology, so you’ll be implementing and working with the latest natural language processing (NLP) techniques and ideas.
About the Role
As a Senior Fullstack Engineer, UX, you will work with a group of talented, mission-driven colleagues to propose ideas to define, drive, and execute projects on Lilt’s Linguist GUI and App Server–the front door to our translation services.

UX is at the forefront of the company strategy, therefore this is a high-visibility, high-impact role with enormous growth opportunities.
You must be curious, have attention to detail, be energized by a challenging entrepreneurial environment, be comfortable thinking big while also diving deep, and be open to experimenting and iterating on processes as the company grows.
