About Anthropic

Anthropic’s mission is to create reliable, interpretable, and steerable AI systems. We want AI to be safe and beneficial for our users and for society as a whole. Our team is a quickly growing group of committed researchers, engineers, policy experts, and business leaders working together to build beneficial AI systems.

About the role

Anthropic Labs is seeking creative and versatile UI Engineers to design and implement innovative user experiences for our cutting-edge AI technology. As part of the Labs team, you will work closely with researchers, designers, and product managers to rapidly prototype and validate experimental applications of Anthropic's latest AI models.

The Labs team serves as an internal accelerator tasked with bridging the gap between research breakthroughs and product development. Our mandate is to identify high-potential emerging AI capabilities and validate their product-market fit through lightweight demos and user testing. Successful projects will transition to core product teams for further development and launch.


  • Craft intuitive and compelling user interfaces that showcase the power of frontier AI technology
  • Collaborate with designers and researchers to ideate and prototype novel interaction models and UI paradigms
  • Implement high-fidelity, production-quality UI code for web and mobile applications
  • Develop reusable UI components and libraries to accelerate prototyping efforts
  • Advocate for usability, accessibility, and design excellence across Labs initiatives
  • Conduct user testing and analyze feedback to inform iterative UI improvements
  • Provide UI development mentorship to grow the team's capabilities


  • 5+ years of experience building modern, responsive user interfaces for web and mobile
  • Expert proficiency in frontend technologies such as React, HTML/CSS, iOS, Android
  • Solid grasp of UI/UX design principles and ability to implement designs with high fidelity
  • Experience prototyping interactive UI concepts and collaborating closely with designers
  • Knowledge of accessibility best practices and web standards
  • Excellent problem-solving skills and ability to creatively apply UI patterns to AI-driven experiences
  • Strong communication and collaboration skills to partner effectively with cross-functional teams
  • Passion for creating thoughtful, user-centric interfaces that responsibly integrate AI capabilities
  • Portfolio demonstrating range of UI design and development work

Example projects you might work on:

  • Designing multimodal interfaces that seamlessly combine vision, language and speech interactions
  • Exploring novel UI paradigms for human-AI collaborative workflows
  • Prototyping intelligent UI components that proactively adapt to user needs and context
  • Experimenting with generative UI techniques to create dynamic, personalized interfaces

We look forward to seeing your skills and creativity applied to the UI challenges at the forefront of AI. Join us in shaping the future of how humans interact with artificial intelligence.

To apply, please submit your resume and portfolio, along with a note about an innovative UI project or experiment you are particularly proud of. We encourage you to apply even if you do not meet every qualification. Anthropic offers highly competitive compensation and benefits.

The expected salary range for this position is:

Annual Salary:
$200,000$400,000 USD


Location-based hybrid policy: Currently, we expect all staff to be in one of our offices at least 25% of the time. However, some roles may require more time in our offices.

US visa sponsorship: We do sponsor visas! However, we aren't able to successfully sponsor visas for every role and every candidate; operations roles are especially difficult to support. But if we make you an offer, we will make every effort to get you into the United States, and we retain an immigration lawyer to help with this.

We encourage you to apply even if you do not believe you meet every single qualification. Not all strong candidates will meet every single qualification as listed. Research shows that people who identify as being from underrepresented groups are more prone to experiencing imposter syndrome and doubting the strength of their candidacy, so we urge you not to exclude yourself prematurely and to submit an application if you're interested in this work. We think AI systems like the ones we're building have enormous social and ethical implications. We think this makes representation even more important, and we strive to include a range of diverse perspectives on our team.

Compensation and Benefits*

Anthropic’s compensation package consists of three elements: salary, equity, and benefits. We are committed to pay fairness and aim for these three elements collectively to be highly competitive with market rates.

Equity - On top of this position's salary (listed above), equity will be a major component of the total compensation. We aim to offer higher-than-average equity compensation for a company of our size, and communicate equity amounts at the time of offer issuance.

US Benefits - The following benefits are for our US-based employees:

  • Optional equity donation matching at a 3:1 ratio, up to 50% of your equity grant.
  • Comprehensive health, dental, and vision insurance for you and all your dependents.
  • 401(k) plan with 4% matching.
  • 22 weeks of paid parental leave.
  • Unlimited PTO – most staff take between 4-6 weeks each year, sometimes more!
  • Stipends for education, home office improvements, commuting, and wellness.
  • Fertility benefits via Carrot.
  • Daily lunches and snacks in our office.
  • Relocation support for those moving to the Bay Area.

UK Benefits - The following benefits are for our UK-based employees:

  • Optional equity donation matching at a 3:1 ratio, up to 50% of your equity grant.
  • Private health, dental, and vision insurance for you and your dependents.
  • Pension contribution (matching 4% of your salary).
  • 21 weeks of paid parental leave.
  • Unlimited PTO – most staff take between 4-6 weeks each year, sometimes more!
  • Health cash plan.
  • Life insurance and income protection.
  • Daily lunches and snacks in our office.

* This compensation and benefits information is based on Anthropic’s good faith estimate for this position as of the date of publication and may be modified in the future. Employees based outside of the UK or US will receive a different benefits package. The level of pay within the range will depend on a variety of job-related factors, including where you place on our internal performance ladders, which is based on factors including past work experience, relevant education, and performance on our interviews or in a work trial.

How we're different

We believe that the highest-impact AI research will be big science. At Anthropic we work as a single cohesive team on just a few large-scale research efforts. And we value impact — advancing our long-term goals of steerable, trustworthy AI — rather than work on smaller and more specific puzzles. We view AI research as an empirical science, which has as much in common with physics and biology as with traditional efforts in computer science. We're an extremely collaborative group, and we host frequent research discussions to ensure that we are pursuing the highest-impact work at any given time. As such, we greatly value communication skills. We do not have boundaries between engineering and research, and we expect all of our technical staff to contribute to both as needed.

The easiest way to understand our research directions is to read our recent research. This research continues many of the directions our team worked on prior to Anthropic, including: GPT-3, Circuit-Based Interpretability, Multimodal Neurons, Scaling Laws, AI & Compute, Concrete Problems in AI Safety, and Learning from Human Preferences.

Come work with us!

Anthropic is a public benefit corporation based in San Francisco. We offer competitive compensation and benefits, optional equity donation matching, generous vacation and parental leave, flexible working hours, and a lovely office space in which to collaborate with colleagues.
