Warnings

Building bi(OS) is a formidable goal and will require a lot of sweat and tears. Even by startup standards, we are intense, and we don’t like to cut corners.
You will be a Single Point of Failure (SPOF) for significant innovations. At times, you may feel overwhelmed, but you will always have fellow engineers to rely upon.
We do not value years of experience or management skills and downright abhor politics, sloppiness, and narcissism.

We have the right customers, team, and investors and are just getting warmed up! If you are a self-driven team-player, who takes pride in your craft, and knows to have fun along the way, let’s connect!
