We want to make parallelization and cluster computing for machine learning available to any data scientist who needs it.

Role Description

We want you to build a high performing, flexible, cohesive team with excellent morale and retention.

You’ll also be a key contributor to the strategic direction of the product and the company. You’ll answer strategic questions like “should we make the Dask + Tensorflow experience better, or go all in on PyTorch?” and “should we build a model monitoring tool, or focus on integrating with others?” and “how do we make GPU computing more accessible to the average data scientist?”.
