We’re looking for a Front End Engineer.

  • You’re passionate, meticulous and skilled in front end development (React/Angular, React Native)

  • You want to play a role in building AI technology that will enable the future of creativity

  • You’ll own Pencil’s front ends, both desktop SaaS and companion mobile app

  • Your pay will scale with growth and you’ll have an option on early-employee equity

  • Starting Q1 2019 based at Block 79, Ayer Rajah Crescent, Singapore 139955

About us

We believe that AI will be as fundamental to creativity in the next 100 years as the pencil was in the last 100. We are building the world’s first creative AI for generating digital content. Pencil generates compelling original copy, visuals or layouts for any message and audience, pre- optimising for business metrics like recall, engagement and conversion. This is revolutionary for industries like advertising, publishing & e-commerce which depend on targeted content that’s slow and expensive to make and A/B test - and that’s before even tackling personalisation.

AI content generation can be fully automated, using a brand’s history and public data from news or social media to pitch products into any cultural context. Generation can also take its cues from human creatives, scaling concepts into whole new classes of personalised, real-time content.

We’re an early stage team from Google and award-winning creative shop Iris Worldwide, venture backed by Wavemaker Partners, Singapore Innovate and Entrepreneur First.

About you

Software today is deterministic. You push pixels or press keys one a time. Our AI platform writes language and designs visuals automatically and collaboratively. This means a very special front end. We’re looking for a front-end engineer to build and manage a unique user experience. Your job will be to turn wireframes into working code, with KPIs linked to feature rollout speed and extensibility. Your day to day will involve:

  • Working with UX, back end and customer success teams to prioritise front-end features

  • Building out and managing specific front end interfaces for our platforms

We’re not looking for someone who meets a checklist of requirements, but here’s one anyway:

  • Have 2-5 years in front end development

  • Experience with one or more of React, Angular, React Native, Node.js

  • Some UX or design experience ideal


Let’s move fast and make things.
