Magic is a Y Combinator-backed software company in San Francisco, CA that is building a hyper-intelligent, ubiquitous executive assistant and concierge service available over SMS.
It is our task 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.
As such, the software we are building is multi-faceted and there are numerous difficult and engaging problems that span the fields of human-computer interaction, artificial intelligence, distributed systems, parallel computing, process automation, networking and communication, database systems, and more. All of this complexity is hidden from the user and wrapped into one seamless experience that is delivered over SMS.
Our primary technologies right now are Node.js, MongoDB, Meteor, Ruby, PostgreSQL, and Twilio. Experience with these are nice BUT NOT REQUIRED. Bonus if you have experience with C/C++ or some type of Lisp. We believe in using the right tool for the job.
