Data Science Is Transforming The World

But data engineering is full of friction. Only 1 in 10 data science projects make it to production. At Linea, we are reimagining the data science toolchain to empower anyone to generate value with data.

What We Do

We are building a company to make the transformational power of data science available to everyone, without the need for PhD. Our mission is to unify the data science ecosystem using open source, serving as the bridge between the science and art of data. By incorporating the latest research from systems, databases, programming languages, and human-computer interactions, we are reimagining the data science experience to help everyone be great at data.

Modern data scientists love LineaPy, our open source tool that simplifies the most repetitive and mundane data engineering tasks. It’s our first step to empowering teams to deliver actionable insights faster. 

Who We Are
Linea is a fast-growing company of explorers, engineers, and scientists. We are mission-driven and focused on providing an exceptional user experience. Our team works closely with customers from the world’s most recognizable brands to shape and refine our product. 

Linea founders are CS PhDs from the lab at UC Berkeley that created Apache Spark. Our team has worked on many popular machine learning frameworks such as Spark MLlib, Tensorflow Extended (TFX), and ONNX – and built proprietary ML infra that powers billions of dollars in revenue. We make bold technical bets. We're not afraid to incorporate cutting-edge research to achieve unparalleled UX and product performance. Our competitive edge is our unique technical expertise and insight and relentless focus on serving our customers. We are headquartered in the Bay Area with a distributed workforce working remotely around the globe. 

We are well-funded by top-tier VC firms and are scaling up our team to take on an ambitious product roadmap. We're looking for a product manager to join us on our mission. As the founding PM, you will be a thought partner to the CEO and work cross-functionally with many different team members.
