Musk's xAI is looking for talent – here's how much he’s willing to pay


Elon Musk's artificial intelligence startup, xAI, which developed the chatbot Grok and has just announced $6 billion in funding, is planning to hire around 20 new employees.

Many of the positions, which were announced by xAI's researcher Igor Babucshin and also shared by Musk on X, formerly Twitter, are looking for employees for various AI roles and tech-related jobs.

xAI has four open positions for AI Engineers and Researchers (Data/Crawling, Multimodal, Post-Training, and Pre Training), with annual salaries ranging from $180,000 to $440,000.

Depending on the exact position, the technical skills required are Python, Jax, XLA, Rust, CUDA, and Spark.

Several other roles, including Product Backend Engineer and Product Mobile Engineer, feature the same salary range.

The company is also looking for an Information Security Engineer, offering $180,000 to $370,000 a year. The candidate is expected to have 8+ years of experience in the field, a relevant Bachelor's degree, and 3+ years of experience operating either as a leader or principal-level individual contributor, among other requirements.

Infrastructure System Engineers and Infrastructure Software Engineers will also receive salaries of $180,000 to $370,000.

Meanwhile, AI Tutors will be offered a $35-65 hourly salary range, while AI Tutor Project Lead can expect to earn $140,000 to $196,000 a year.

xAI states that its goal is to finish the main process within one week. Since the company does not have a recruiter, every application will be reviewed directly by a technical member of the team.

The advertisement states that the selected candidates will be invited to a 15-minute phone interview. After that, there will be four technical interviews.

The majority of the positions will be located in offices in the Bay Area, with only Frontend Engineer and UI/UX Designer located in London, UK. However, the advertisement states that exceptional candidates will be offered an opportunity to work remotely.

On Sunday, x.AI announced a $6 billion investment, which will be used to bring xAI's first products to market, build advanced infrastructure, and accelerate the research and development of future technologies.
