Careers

Come join a startup that feels like a family. We may be serious about science, but we’ve got a work-hard, play-hard attitude. We’re cracking the code on machine intelligence, while supporting each other along the way. Our fully stocked kitchen, with snacks that vary from caffeine to carrots, will help fuel you through the day.
We enjoy company events, game nights and happy hours in our downtime. In the past, we've sailed the bay, caught a San Jose Earthquakes game, and played some competitive bocce ball. Additional perks include a discretionary vacation policy and being a short walk from the Redwood City Caltrain Station.
