    Do you want to help create a new world bridging human and synthetic identity while solving technical problems that you won’t find anywhere else?  We are Alias, and we are building a community-based video application for authentic and safe expression, where users interact through AI-generated synthetic identities. Our product is based on cutting-edge AI research and utilizes the most recent breakthroughs in generative media.
    We are looking for a skilled Backend/Fullstack Engineer to join our founding team and help us build the next-gen social network. Our back-end tech stack includes MongoDB, Express.js and Django - all hosted in AWS.  We design our systems to be scalable and efficient by using asynchronous queue-based interaction between components.
    Our entire team is fully remote and international. We are creative, fast-paced, nimble and understand that employees thrive when their work has purpose.  If this sounds like a fit for you, please email your resume or LinkedIn profile to
