Senior Software Engineer – Backend

Location: This is a fully remote opportunity with ValidMind

This is a fully remote opportunity with ValidMind. You will not be required to relocate.

ValidMind is on a mission to become the world’s leading provider of trust for AI/ML and algorithmic models. Our initial focus is to modernize how Financial Institutions and Insurance companies conduct their Model Validation and Model Risk Management (MRM) activities. ValidMind’s approach reimagines model validation activities to make them more efficient, more consistent, and of higher quality. Our platform automatically generates documentation for algorithmic models, and proactively identifies potential risks for both traditional and machine-learning models, thus enabling effective model validation according to compliance and regulatory requirements.

We believe that through more effective identification and documentation of model risks, we can enable more trust in those models for our customers, their customers, and the public at large. ValidMind’s mission is backed by the AI Fund (https://aifund.ai/), and Dr. Andrew Ng.
