Jan Leike, OpenAI’s Head of Super Alignment, shared in a podcast that the company is actively hiring research engineers, scientists, and managers. He emphasized the importance of finding passionate candidates committed to making AI safer.
During a visit to India earlier this year, Sam Altman, the CEO of OpenAI, expressed eagerness to welcome talented IT professionals from the country.
Altman highlighted that a Ph.D. is not a prerequisite, stating, “Many of our best researchers are undergraduates or are college dropouts. You certainly do not need a Ph.D. to do great work. OpenAI will welcome you on the basis of talent, and we are certainly a good fit for undergrads.”
Atty Eleti, a software engineer at OpenAI, provided insight into the hiring process, stating that interested individuals can reach out directly by sending an email to the CEO.
Eleti encouraged showcasing skills through Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), building remarkable products, contributing to open-source resources, and reaching out to firstname.lastname@example.org to explore job opportunities.
