Who are we?

GPTZero is the world's leading platform for verifying the origin, quality, and factuality of the world's information. In less than a year, GPTZero has been used by over 5M people around the world and is depended on by thousands of consumer and enterprise customers. We’ve been covered on the front page of the NYT, BBC, WSJ, WaPo, Fox, NPR, and CNN; and serve >2M unique users per month.

In March 2023, we raised a $3.5M seed round co-led by Uncork Capital and Neo with angel investments by the Altman Fund, the CEOs of Stability.ai and LatticeHQ, as well as the former CEOs of NYT, BBC, and Reuters. We’re solving novel, challenging problems in NLP and ML, and deploying cutting-edge solutions to detect the origin and veracity of the information on the web.

We’ve built a team from Meta, Uber, Microsoft, Affirm, Bloomberg, and Robinhood, as well as AI research labs from Princeton, Vector, MILA, and Caltech. To continue our rapid growth, we're looking for people who are passionate about this mission to join us!

This role is a combination of both product and design. This job is to define and design what writing on the internet looks like in 10 years.

On some days you will be akin to a director of product, championing a vision and priorities across our engineering and machine learning teams. On other days you will be a designer, on the front lines with Figma, defining our user experience.

The ideal candidate has:

  • 2-5 years of work experience in a design, product, or startup role.

  • Product management skills

  • Leadership experience

  • Advanced familiarity with Figma

  • Self-starter, entrepreneurial, and biased towards action

As a special note, if you were the designer who could not stop thinking about product goals, the product manager who could not stop thinking about design interactions, or the former founder who could not stop thinking about both, this role is for you.


This is a full-time position with competitive salary, benefits, and equity.


Hybrid work in our NYC office. Flexible for a remote start.


You will be working directly with,

  • Edward (our CEO) on translating our vision into a product roadmap.

  • Olivia (our UX designer) on designing what we build.

  • Jonathan (our Chief of Staff) in balancing our business priorities and the requests of our enterprise partners (eg. AFT)

  • Alex (our CTO) on translating the bleeding edge of AI developments into our product roadmap.

Additionally, you will be working with an experienced (eg. ex-Google, Meta, Microsoft, Bloomberg ML, Uber, Vector AI Institute), diverse (eg. a designer with artwork featured in the Met, an engineering team with both Y-combinator and Obama scholarship recipients) and driven (eg. an operator who has scaled a company to 100M+ revenue and is committed to doing it again) group of individuals, described by one investor as one of the strongest founding teams seen in their career.

Together, we are committed to making a permanent impact on the future of writing, and on humanity
