Job Description

Flyx (flyx.ai) is an AI research company building a suite of LLM-based consumer applications. Founded by a team of second-time founders who collectively raised ~$1 billion for their previous companies, Flyx is incubating cutting-edge consumer LLM products.

Flyx’s founding team comes from Harvard, Wharton, Stanford, the Thiel Fellowship, and includes 3 YC founders. We are hot off the heels of our $7.5M seed raise led by Daniel Gross and Felicis Ventures.

This Machine Learning Research Internship is part of Flyx’s In-School Engineer (ISE) program. The ISE program allows students pursuing a 4-year degree in engineering or business to work at Flyx for 1-year in conjunction of their schooling. During the program, ISE’s are challenged as regular full-time employees and are evaluated for full-time promotion upon graduation.

More about the ISE program:

  • Flexible work schedule to accommodate schooling
  • Opportunity to work in the Puerto Rico summer house and travel on work getaways to Paris and Taiwan
  • No credentialism – junior developers do senior level work
  • Full-time equivalent pay for people who are still in school
  • Start-up Culture – hacker mentality with fast shipping speeds
