Our dataflow automation platform bridges the gap between data engineers and data scientists, letting each do what they do best. We create frameworks that govern automation and deliver confidence - we focus on design because we know that sophisticated products can still be easy to use. We're united by a love of building beautiful products with new technologies. We are looking for enthusiastic new additions to our team who are excited by the question “what will you build?
