✨ About The Role

Company Description

Shaped is an API for developers to seamlessly add personalized ranking and recommendation into their products. These frictionless discovery experiences help end-users find what they want faster, and, consequently, grow conversion and engagement business metrics.

Ultimately, our goal is to make AI accessible and we see machine-learning for discovery (e.g. TikTok "For-You Page", FB “News feed” and YouTube "What to watch next") as the best place to start.

Shaped is a seed stage start-up backed by top investors (e.g. Y-Combinator, Susa Ventures, Tribe Capital etc…) and executives (e.g. Google, Amazon, Uber, Dropbox etc…). Our team comes from Meta, Google, Apple and Uber. We’re remote but have an office in Brooklyn, New York.

Job Description

We are seeking a highly motivated and customer-focused Account Executive to join Shaped. In this role, you will be responsible for driving sales and revenue growth by acquiring new customers. As the primary point of contact, you will understand customers' unique needs and tailor our ML infrastructure solutions to meet their requirements. Your technical expertise and passion for ML will be instrumental in demonstrating the value of our APIs to developers and decision-makers.

As a founding account executive, you'll also play a pivotal role in helping to build scalable sales processes and contribute to shaping our product roadmaps and culture.

We’re excited to work with you. Come build the future of AI with us!
