About Recursive

As the world’s population grows, we are facing a number of global challenges in the realms of environmental conservation, societal equity and ensuring that nobody is left behind in the transition to a digital economy. Artificial intelligence is a key technology to not only address some symptoms of these issues, but also helping create completely new innovative approaches that can create a more sustainable economy and lifestyle.

Recursive is an AI consulting company based in Japan working on developing solutions to some of these challenging problems. We collaborate with large Japanese enterprises to create innovative solutions to sustainability challenges, merging in our expertise in AI research and our client’s domain knowledge. Our development projects focus around the main themes of improving efficiency, accelerating innovation, risk mitigation and better work and education.

Recursive is founded by Tiago Ramalho and Katsutoshi Yamada. Tiago was a Senior Research… Engineer at Google Deepmind and Lead Research scientist at Cogent labs and brings years of machine learning expertise to the company. Katsutoshi is a serial entrepreneur and AI expert with experience in developing and establishing innovative business models in Japan and abroad.

Founded in 2020, we are now looking to grow and expand our impact further, building on previous successes. One of many initiatives we are currently pursuing is a system to optimize irrigation of peatlands in Indonesia, helping to prevent forest fires and maximize carbon absorption.

The role

As a Fullstack Engineer at Recursive you will be helping us deploy our AI solutions to our Clients’ systems and to the world at large, helping us with our mission to create technological solutions to the world’s sustainability problems.

Our projects will require deployment of AI services to the cloud with an associated frontend to allow humans to interact with the machine, and you will be in charge of making sure the frontend is user-friendly, high quality and responsive.

Our company culture encourages learning and constant communication, and discourages micro-management and lack of trust. We are looking for people who want to grow and develop and are looking for the next challenge in their career.

We will give you as much responsibility as you want and encourage you to tackle challenging and interesting problems that will help you learn new skills. At the same time, we are looking for a great communicator who can reach out to the team to solve problems in a collaborative way.

We consider candidates at all experience levels. We are a learning organization and are looking for motivated people who are eager to learn, as well as experienced team contributors who can add their experience to the team’s knowledge.

• Degree in Computer Science or related fields or industry experience in Fullstack Development
• Proficient with HTML, CSS, Javascript and other frontend technologies
• Familiarity with Python, and Cloud (GCP, AWS) is a plus
• Familiarity with Data Science, Data Visualization or Machine Learning is a plus
• Confident and effective communicator, both internally and externally.
• Attentive to detail, and passionate about documentation.
• Fluent in English (Japanese knowledge is a plus).

We are striving to build a diverse team of all backgrounds and encourage anyone who fits the above profile to reach out to us, regardless of prior work experience. We also welcome applications from more experienced candidates with industry experience in Cloud Systems Architecture, Big Data and Distributed Systems Design.

We know that box-ticking is dull and that nobody fits all the boxes. Even if not all of this applies to you, we’d love to hear from you!

What you’ll get at Recursive

In addition to a competitive salary and a generous personal time off allowance, the following aspects are central to our company culture:
• Work-life balance: we operate short core hours, and let team members fit their working time to their life circumstances. We believe people do their best work when they are trusted and released from artificial scheduling constraints.
• Real responsibility: as an early employee in an ambitious startup we give you a lot of responsibility (and expect you to own it). We are looking for people who want this.
• Growth: you bring a lot of experience to the table. We won’t stop here – expect an incredibly steep learning curve and the growth opportunities that come with that.

We are an equal-opportunity employer and value diversity. We consider all applications equally and strongly encourage women and people from groups traditionally underrepresented in tech to apply. We can help with visa sponsorship
