Who We Are:

Our purpose is to make AI for All by democratizing machine learning and making it accessible to people with no prior background in either advanced statistics or machine learning. We are a team of machine learning hackers, full stack engineers, user-experience doyens, and business pros who believe in the power of human-machine collaboration. Our motto is human perspective + machine > just the machine. We value epic engineering and high emotional intelligence, high empathy work environment. An MIT spinoff that now calls Brooklyn, New York home.
