Research Engineer

Anysphere. San Francisco, United States.


  • We're building the future of coding, starting with an AI-first code editor: Cursor.
  • Our small team includes IMO gold medalists, former founders, researchers, and top OSS authors.
  • We're growing fast.
  • Our lead investor is OpenAI.
  • We're in-person in a beautiful office in North Beach, San Francisco.


Research is mission critical to what we do.

In the next few years, we'd like to build a code editor that is more helpful, delightful, and fun than the world has ever seen. Cursor should be a place where it's impossible to write a bug, where you can whip up 2,000-line PRs with 50 lines of pseudo code, and where you can get any codebase question answered instantly.

Solving these problems will require pushing the state-of-the-art of coding AI.

You will:

  • Ship fast and be comfortable with engineering.
  • Lead our research strategy.
  • Solve these problems.
  • Have access to all the resources you need.
