About Magic:

Magic's task is to use software to tame a staggering world of complexity. Our users can put in any request or command, no matter how complex, using natural language. Our software manages each request from the moment it enters our system until it is fully complete. This includes back-end infrastructure to handle SMS messages, natural language processing and machine learning, intelligent internal tooling for our agents, and innovative layers of abstraction over the diverse complexity of the world. Current users of Magic are truly living in the future. They wake up in the morning greeted by Magic and are offered their favorite breakfast. Magic handles their calendar and their email and routes them throughout their day effortlessly. Magic's product today is the Star Trek computer we've always wanted. It's the AI from the movie Her, and it's available right now. https://getmagic.com/

The Role:
