Fullstack Developer (Python, Flask, Vue.js, Nuxt, DevOps) – Upwork


We're on a mission to make certain that the conversational AI revolution benefits everyone. Machines are increasingly awesome at understanding English. But what about the 5+ billion people who need to communicate in their native language?

Sinitic automates multilingual customer support with a vertically-integrated product suite and proprietary NLP engine for Chinese, Tagalog, Vietnamese, Japanese, Thai and other languages. Our core tech includes IP for mixed-language understanding and semi-supervised chat history structuring (we really love NLP). We're a fast-growing SaaS business with great call center clients from the iGaming and RegTech industries.


Build it fast with usage: We deliver functional product to clients and iterate with real-time data. With this approach, we move fast and innovate cutting-edge NLP tech.

Target 1-2 opportunities: We target a max of 1-2 opportunities or problems at a time. With this mindset, we scale our business and product as efficiently as possible.

Stay hyper-global: We're a team with Taiwanese and Ukrainian devs building Canadian software powered by Vietnamese NLP for Swedish clients based in the Philippines. With this global method, we thrive together.


The backbone of Sinitic consists of several python (micro) services communicating through a message queue server. Our clients have call centers with 24/7 operations, therefore testing and high-availability are critical to us. We are currently hosted on a multi-region GCP infrastructure and rely heavily on Kubernetes and Google Cloud SQL (Postgres) to achieve high levels of stability and performance.

The heart of Sinitic is driven by our passion to ensure that the conversational AI revolution benefits everyone from all corners of the Earth. To do this, we're building automation products that go after every mundane task in the customer support domain: livechat, ticketing, chatbot training, upselling, scheduling, and more.


As a remote-first company, our top priority is to implement new ways of enabling your maximum productivity, happiness, and contributions to the team. To accomplish this, we receive incredible support from the Creative Destruction Lab, Next Canada, Ontario Centers of Excellence, Startup Chile, and the National Research Council of Canada. We're building a team of ambitious, global-minded, can-do winners who want to absolutely succeed over the next years. Together, we're doing the finest work of our lives.
