We are building new front-end teams globally. We are looking for multiple tech-savvy front-end developers with different levels of expertise who are fast-learners and team players to join us remotely or locally and help us bring our smart data annotation platform to the next level. You will participate in developing a high-tech ML/AI product (product demo: https://youtu.be/lrX6Jm2fHFE) while you witness the social impact you make. What impact, you say?

What does a Front-end developer mean at Sama?
As a front-end developer, you will join a global team of sharp and agile developers to build an enterprise solution to annotate 2D/3D images and videos to train Al/ML learning algorithms. Take a look at this https://youtu.be/lrX6Jm2fHFE to learn more about what we build.
On a sprint basis, you will work on the backlog/bugs of the active sprint; you will participate in the design, coding, code review, and testing of any story. Depending on the scope of the story, you may work directly with UX designers, Architect, Product Managers, or developers on other teams, eg, ML/AI, Data, or Backend.
You’ll get the opportunity to either contribute to developing a feature or lead the development of a feature with the rest of the team from A to Z. This is a unique opportunity as you bring a feature from almost zero to deploying it on the production. You never have this amazing opportunity anywhere else, as you get direct feedback from our in-house annotation agents.
You, as a front-end developer, are part of the global engineering team. At the engineering team, we have built one of the most scalable CI pipelines to reduce building and debugging. We know a fast and reliable CI makes every developer happier.
We sponsor internal and external hackathons; we dedicate time for innovation and learning. We believe the success of a developer is tied to continuous learning, practice, and innovation.
