Full-Time Senior Full Stack Engineer

We believe that AI is awesome.  We love technology. And yet, we’ve learned nothing can replace human touch when it comes to handling difficult emotions.  Loris.ai uses ML and NLP to help humans be the best version of ourselves: to communicate with more empathy and de-escalate hard conversations.


Loris.ai is social good company. We’re a spin-out of Crisis Text Line, (the free, confidential, 24/7 text message service for people in crisis) which gives us an exciting proprietary edge:

  • Crisis Text Line is used to handle the most sensitive high-risk conversations - with an 85% satisfaction rating.

  • Crisis Text Line has trained more than 20,000 Crisis Counselors to communicate with empathy.

  • Crisis Text Line has amassed a data corpus of more than 90 million messages, labeled by humans on both sides, which informs these algorithms.


We’re looking for a Senior Full Stack Engineer to build our SaaS product.

You’ll be at the heart of the team building a web app from the ground up. You’ll be involved in both product discovery and delivery, working closely with the Data Science team to productize their machine learning models to craft a product that transforms the way people communicate.


  • Tech Chops. 5+ years of experience working on awesome web apps. Not afraid to build an app from scratch. Untouchable software design and development skills, and a passion to tackle hard technical problems with creative solutions.

  • AI Obsessed. Our first technical hire was our data scientist. This is as much an AI company as it is a software company.  Integration with our machine learning models drives the system architecture and informs software optimization and iteration.

  • Gutsy and eager. You’re excited to be the first engineer on the team. You don’t see obstacles - you walk through walls.

  • Drive. You’re unintimidated by an empty git repo and text file.

  • West Coast? Fuggedaboutit! We’re still a small team and we want you in NYC with us.


  • Open Vacation Policy

  • Fully covered health insurance, dental insurance, and vision insurance.

  • We work out of the beautiful Crisis Text Line office in Flatiron. Startup mindset, but there are plentiful snacks and passionate people all around you.

  • Loris is an equal opportunity employer.
