Senior Elixir Engineer
Vic.ai is creating the “Intelligent Accounting” era, using artificial intelligence to automate accounting and provide advisory, business insight, and eventually business foresight.
We’re a Series A stage start-up, founded by three Norwegian entrepreneurs and backed by renowned Silicon Valley investors (including Costanoa Ventures, Cowboy Ventures, and GGV Capital). We’re US-based, but our team is global, from New Zealand to California. We’re bringing AI to Finance and Accounting because the industry is ripe for automation and big-data insight and the market is huge: $200B just in the US.
Our main office locations is in New York. We have a well established remote-work culture, and over 50% of our team are working fully remote.
We have a solid team of very experienced, yet humble, Elixir engineers, will you be our next team member?
You’ve been a software engineer for 5+ years, but you’ve been a tinkerer and a builder your whole life. We’re a team of builders—when we aren’t building Vic.ai, we’re tinkering with a personal project, contributing to open source, modding a drone, building a computer from components, etc.
We’re looking for an experienced developer who enjoys working with server-side technologies. You possess a good mixture of DevOps and application development skills and would like to build innovative solutions with experienced teammates in a flexible environment.
You should have plenty of experience in building performant, easy to use, well-monitored, and well tested APIs, designing efficient data flows, communicating clearly, sharing knowledge, and questioning existing solutions.
You’re ready for the next step in your career, ready to take on fast-moving challenges. You’re enthusiastic about AI and the possibilities it opens for software development and transforming traditional work. You aim at reaching greatness and delivering exceptional outcomes in your work.
As a team player, you are not afraid of reaching out to your colleagues to discuss development challenges, especially when you are stuck trying to solve a specific issue.
You are fluent in English.
We're not just fully remote, we also offer
Generous vacation time, family and travel-friendly environment
Work alongside an enthusiastic, collegial, and driven team in a highly meritocratic environment
Above all, you should enjoy the journey. Our engineers are creative, technical, smart, and genuinely like each other. They enjoy the work they do, and so should you!

Integrate Elixir systems with non-uptime-critical systems in Python
Design and establish validation, testing, correctness, and resilience best practices across teams
Ship products and services as part of a small, collaborative team

BS (or higher) in Computer Science or a related technical field, or equivalent technical experience
5+ years of relevant work experience
Professional experience with Elixir programming language
