Hypernatural is a generative video platform that puts the creation of great videos in reach for everyone. We’re hiring a Product Engineer to build the future of video creation with us.
Short form video is on an explosive trajectory that shows no signs of slowing down. Every marketer wants to make more videos, but good video is expensive to produce and often requires highly specialized skills.
Enter Hypernatural. We are on a journey to build the most amazing and easy-to-use generative video editor the world has ever seen. We’re shipping custom fine-tuned generative models across multiple modalities (text, imagery, video) and tackling all the crazy latency and multi-player issues involved.
Our engineering ethos
The app prototype is a Django app with a React frontend. We use Postgres and Redis and Celery. It was the fastest way to get something built that we could show to real people, while still being easy to deploy and monitor.
Our frontend is TypeScript, thankyouverymuch dhh. We’re still using React Router — but we’re open to the idea that maybe it’s time to embrace the Next or Remix ecosystem.
We have tests, we have ci, we have automatic deploys. We use a generated TypeScript API client created by some OpenAPI scaffolding, so it’s easy for .ts to talk to .py. But for the first few months there was just an api.ts file with a bunch of fetch() calls in it (!).
You’ve shipped apps or websites to real customers and iterated to make the product better for them.
You’re not afraid to jump into unfamiliar languages if it means shipping a product change more quickly
You thrive in the product frontend and have strong opinions about building a great user experience
You’re detail-oriented. You care when something is off center or there’s a jitter in the animation. If you see something weird happening in the app in a user onboarding session, you want to jump in and figure out why.
You will become a world expert in how to make video generation and editing feel effortless (and fast) in a browser. Model inference latency means every single action users in Hypernatural take is asynchronous, but we can’t bore people to death with progress bars all over the UI. Help us make it a joy to use.
