We're (Almost) Perfect


Founder & CEO

Jeremiah began designing Prefect when he was the Director of Risk Management for a large investment firm, inspired by lessons learned as a PMC member of Apache Airflow. Previously, he started the risk and data teams at King Street Capital Management and built an early machine learning software company, giving him hands-on experience with almost every aspect of the modern data science stack. Jeremiah received a master's degree in statistics and bachelor's in economics from Harvard University.


Senior Machine Learning Engineer

Chris has always had a passion for building data-driven tools founded on the right abstractions, so that other scientists and engineers can efficiently realize and deploy their ideas in creative and robust ways. Prior to Prefect, Chris was a Data Scientist Manager at Capital One, where he went from building regulatory attrition models to being a lead engineer on a new platform for deploying and working with credit card valuation models. Chris received his Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Texas at Austin in 2015.


Data Engineer

Before joining Prefect, Josh was a Software Engineer at Kensho Technologies and responsible for overseeing the creation and maintaining of event aggregation data pipelines. His motivation to join Prefect was driven by both his experience building data engineering infrastructure at Kensho and struggling with it when performing research with scientists from NASA at the Jet Propulsion Lab and the Goddard Space Flight Center. Josh received his bachelor's in computer science from the University of Maryland.
