About the Company:

Manifold started with a simple observation: In a world full of data and AI tools, why do many organizations still struggle to realize value from all their newly available data.

Manifold Labs is the product development services arm of Manifold. We accelerate building impactful data and AI technology for our clients across various domains using the modern data stack.

Many Manifolders say this is the best place they’ve worked in their career because of the culture and community, using words like genuine, earnest, trusting, learning/teaching, curious, humble. Our team is distributed across the US and Canada, with established hubs in the San Francisco and Boston areas, recent hubs in the Seattle, Denver, and Louisville area, and more in formation. Learn more on our Careers page!

About the Role:

As a machine learning engineer, a large portion of your time and energy will be focused on a cross-functional team building scientific models for the modern era.
