Our mission

At Harmony Intelligence, our mission is to ensure the safe flourishing of humanity in a world with ever more advanced AI systems. We recognize the tremendous potential of AI to positively impact the world, but also the risks AI poses if not developed and deployed carefully. We invite you to join our motivated team and help steer transformative AI in a safe and responsible direction!

About us

We're a small but quickly growing remote-first startup, with folks in San Francisco and Sydney. Though we’re still young, we're already making a big impact! We’ve published our first automated red teaming paper to massively positive reception from the AI community, and are actively working on evals and other AI safety research.

Preferred time zone

While we are a remote-first org, we have a strong preference for time zones that are near or in between the time zones we currently work in. That means somewhere in/west of the Pacific time zone or in/east of the Australian Eastern time zone.

Open Positions

Founding Research Engineer

As a Founding Research Engineer, you’ll have a unique opportunity to have a big impact at Harmony! Your work will be multi-faceted, spanning software engineering, AI safety research, product ideation, project planning, building customer relationships, and more.

What you’ll be doing:

(Don't worry if this sounds a little different from the kind of work you've done in the past. AI safety is a constantly evolving field, and some amount of "learning on the job" is expected and encouraged.)

  • Building dangerous capabilities evals in different categories: cybersecurity, biosecurity, persuasion and manipulation, model autonomy, and more
  • Designing scaffolding to let autonomous agents use tools, understand their environment, plan, and use long-term memory
  • Red teaming, i.e. identifying potential weaknesses, vulnerabilities, or unintended behaviors in AI systems
  • Building secure sandbox environments for testing autonomous agents
  • Keeping up with the latest AI research
  • Interfacing directly with external clients, partners, and research collaborators
  • Brainstorming and prototyping new product or service ideas
  • Communicating findings in detailed qualitative and quantitative reports for different audiences
  • Scaling up infrastructure and making code run faster and more efficiently
  • Writing detailed project proposals for both clients and grantors

What you bring to the table:

  • A deep commitment to AI safety
  • Ability to be flexible and wear multiple hats, context-switching between different roles and responsibilities as needed
  • Experience building complex software projects across all stages of development: architecture design, prototyping, deployment to production, and long-term maintenance/debugging
  • Deep Python experience across a variety of domains
  • Familiarity with basic web technologies: HTTP, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript
  • Excellent communication and collaboration skills, with the ability to articulate technical concepts clearly to both technical and non-technical audiences
  • Grounding in software engineering best practices, including version control, testing, CI, and documentation

Nice to haves:

  • Familiarity with popular Python libraries and frameworks such as NumPy, pandas, Flask, asyncio, scikit-learn, TensorFlow, and PyTorch
  • Experience with Docker and related tools (e.g. Docker Compose, Kubernetes)
  • Knowledge of common LLM architectures (e.g. GPT, BERT), and experience with fine-tuning and/or prompting LLMs
  • Experience with data analysis, visualization, and reporting tools (e.g. pandas, Matplotlib, seaborn, Plotly)
  • Exposure to DevOps / cloud infra services such as AWS, GCP, Azure or similar

Why you’ll love it here:

  • Make a meaningful impact solving one of the biggest challenges of our lifetimes
  • Work from a variety of locations all over the world
  • 20 vacation days and unlimited family & caregiver leave
  • Regular company off-sites at fun, energising locations
  • Inclusive culture that embraces diverse perspectives and backgrounds
  • Continuous learning opportunities and clear paths for career growth


  • Competitive salary in your preferred locale that reflects your experience and the value you bring to the table. We believe in paying fairly and rewarding top talent.
