At Tecton, we solve the complex data problem in production machine learning. Tecton’s feature platform makes it simple to activate data for smarter models and predictions. Tecton abstracts away the complex engineering to speed up innovation.

Tecton’s founders developed the first Feature Store when they created Uber’s Michelangelo ML platform, and we’re now bringing those same capabilities to every organization in the world.

Tecton is funded by Sequoia Capital, Andreessen Horowitz, and Kleiner Perkins, along with strategic investments from Snowflake and Databricks. We have a fast-growing team that’s distributed around the world, with offices in San Francisco and New York City. Our team has years of experience building and operating business-critical machine learning systems at leading tech companies like Uber, Google, Meta, Airbnb, Lyft, and Twitter.

Feature Engineering owns the abstractions and APIs used to build sophisticated ML pipelines used by thousands of developers. You’ll be working on the “hot path” of Tecton’s UX. You’ll partner with Product and Design teams to build capabilities used by customers ranging from Fortune 100s to startups accelerating their path to real-time AI.
