Team Culture 

We're looking for team members who are energized by our ambitious mission and excited to join a fast-paced startup environment, working closely together in our new office in San Francisco.

About the role

    • Finding interesting and useful data sources aligned to our problem and implementing the pipelines to get and measure them
    • Analyzing data to build hypotheses about behavior seen in trained models

    • 5+ years relevant experience working with large data sets
    • Ability to write high quality, maintainable code
    • Energy to learn from leading ML researchers
    • Curiosity needed to explore new data sources, or develop better understanding of existing data
