Hi! We’re looking for a founding engineer to join us at Greptile.

About Greptile:

Greptile is building an AI expert on any codebase, available as an API so teams can easily build powerful internal AI dev tools.

Devs can point Greptile to any GitHub/Gitlab repo, Greptile indexes it (self-updates on new commits) and lets you query it in natural language. Greptile uses a codebase-optimized version of RAG which mimics how human developers navigate codebases, resulting in much higher performance than naive RAG.

You can try our chat UI for free with 150+ OSS repos here.

Some examples of internal tools teams can/have built:

  1. Ticket Enricher: adds codebase context to the the repo including specific file paths to look at.
  2. Auto doc updater: writes a PR to update docs every time new code is pushed.
  3. PR review bot: reviews PRs and leaves comments with full codebase context.
