Human Data Lead

Magic’s mission is to build safe AGI that accelerates humanity’s progress on the world’s most important problems. We believe the most promising path to safe AGI lies in automating research and code generation to improve models and solve alignment more reliably than humans can alone. Our approach combines frontier-scale pre-training, domain-specific RL, ultra-long context, and test-time compute to achieve this goal.

About the role:

As the lead of our human data initiative, you will oversee large-scale human data projects, ensuring the collection, curation, and evaluation of high-quality data to support the development of Magic’s agents, foundation models and research.   

What you might work on: 

  • Oversee the design and implementation of infrastructure to collect, curate, and evaluate data from human experts and synthetic sources
  • Work closely with researchers to gather specialized datasets across various modalities, including code text, images, and tool actions
  • Develop scalable data collection methods
  • Create a high-level research roadmap to plan and prioritize future experiments and data collection strategies

What we’re looking for: 

  • Exceptional attention to detail and ability to manage multiple large-scale projects simultaneously
  • Background in data science, with experience designing and running experiments, as well as operationalizing data collection processes and metrics
  • Strong technical expertise across ML and software engineering
  • Prior experience with large language models and understanding of how data affects both pre- and post-training

Magic strives to be the place where high-potential individuals can do their best work. We value quick learning and grit just as much as skill and experience.

Our culture:

  • Integrity. Words and actions should be aligned
  • Hands-on. At Magic, everyone is building 
  • Teamwork. We move as one team, not N individuals
  • Focus. Safely deploy AGI. Everything else is noise
  • Quality. Magic should feel like magic

Compensation, benefits and perks (US):

  • Annual salary range: $100K - $1M
  • Equity is a significant part of total compensation, in addition to salary
  • 401(k) plan with 6% salary matching
  • Generous health, dental and vision insurance for you and your dependents
  • Unlimited paid time off
  • Option to work in-person in SF or remotely
  • Visa sponsorship and relocation stipend to bring you to SF
  • A small, fast-paced, highly focused team
