👶 About Junior

At Junior, we're on a mission to transform private M&A deal-making by eliminating all of the donkey / process work done by deal teams and their advisors.

Our AI-first product is being used by several of the top 10 global PE and consulting firms, saving an average of 10hrs per diligence per week. Junior works by ingesting raw audio and constructing a unique knowledge base / graph that supercharges deal teams by significantly reducing admin overhead and surface richer insights. Read more about the company mission / values here.

We are in the top 10% for seed B2B SaaS growth and top 1% for traction. We are still just 2 people. We're growing rapidly and have ambitious plans to shape the future of knowledge work at the forefront of genAI.

If you're ready to make your mark at a category-creating startup and grow with a fast-paced, mission-driven team committed to innovation, join us on our journey to become the first and last Copilot for private M&A markets.

💡 Role Description

As our first engineering hire, you'll have the unique opportunity to:

  • Shape our engineering direction and workload
  • Work on groundbreaking projects involving AI, LLMs, and more (see examples below)
  • Collaborate closely with our external partners to fuel our growth
  • Contribute to product decisions, direction and prioritization

🔧 Sample set of projects (completed & in the pipeline)

  • Developing an LLM-driven self-auditing system to increase confidence in LLM transformations and speed to review
  • Build an AI-native Excel sheet for quantitative synthesis, empowering users to systematically pull out structured data points across series of calls
  • Build a dynamic research summarisation engine to provide up-to-date key insights across primary and secondary research
  • Fine-tuning LLMs to drive task-specific improvements

🔥 About You

We're looking for product-minded full-stack engineers who:

  • Based in NYC — huge bias for IRL work
  • Have experience leading projects end-to-end and taking ideas from conception to execution independently
  • Are opinionated about their work and eager to contribute to product decisions
  • Have strong communication skills and a desire for a client-facing role — as a small team, we expect that everyone will be working closely with our external partners
  • Are proficient in our tech stack: Next.js, TypeScript, PostgreSQL
  • Bonus points for experience building & designing AI-powered products!

🌵 Benefits

All the usual benefits (competitive pay, healthcare, gym etc). Unusual benefits:

  • Summers working in Greece
  • Higher than average equity (a perk of not raising external capital is to distribute more to employees)
