Job Description

About Glean

We’re on a mission to make knowledge work faster and more humane. We believe that AI will fundamentally transform how people work. In the future, everyone will work in tandem with expert AI assistants who find knowledge, create and synthesize information, and execute work. These assistants will free people up to focus on the higher-level, creative aspects of their work

We’re building a system of intelligence for every company in the world. On the surface, you can think of it as Google + ChatGPT for the enterprise. Under the hood, our platform is the connective tissue between AI and knowledge. It brings all of a company’s knowledge together, understands it at a deep level, provides industry-leading search relevance over it, and connects it to generative AI agents and applications

Glean was founded by a seasoned team of former Google search and Facebook engineers who saw a need in the enterprise space for their technical depth and passion for AI. We’re a diverse team of curious and creative people who want to help each other get big things done—so we can help other teams do the same.

We're backed by some of the Valley's leading venture capitalists—including Sequoia, Kleiner Perkins, Lightspeed, and General Catalyst—and have assembled a world-class team with senior leadership experience at Google, Slack, Facebook, Dropbox, Rubrik, Uber, Intercom, Pinterest, Palantir, and others.

You’ll collaborate with representatives from some customers to define and implement additional more tailored ways of measuring how Glean is adding value to them. At times, you’ll contribute to these measurements via deep dive custom analyses from your end.

  • Working with engineering and product management teams, you’ll refine, measure and generate strategies to improve KPIs for the autocomplete feature for our search product. You’ll help identify opportunities for these products to be more compelling and performant for its users to ultimately make Glean mission-critical for every knowledge worker.

  • Working with engineering teams, you’ll help monitor and identify opportunities to improve the reliability and cost-efficiency of Glean’s infrastructure, e.g. cloud costs, outages, stability of data sources that power Glean search.

  • You are concise and precise in written and verbal communication. Technical documentation is your strong suit.

  • You are proficient in SQL and the modern data stack (e.g. dbt pipelines for ETL/ELT) 

  • You have experience in writing source-controlled code for pipelines and internal tools for data-oriented decision making.

  • You are proficient in Python. 

You are a particularly good fit if:

  • You have experience in B2B SaaS, especially in a customer-facing way.

  • You have experience with remote work across large time zone differences.
