About the Company

Companies want to train their own large models on their own data. The current industry standard is to train on a random sample of your data, which is inefficient at best and actively harmful to model quality at worst. There is compelling research showing that smarter data selection can train better models faster—we know because we did much of this research. Given the high costs of training, this presents a huge market opportunity. We founded DatologyAI to translate this research into tools that enable enterprise customers to identify the right data on which to train, resulting in better models for cheaper.

Our team has pioneered deep learning data research, built startups, and created tools for enterprise ML.

We have raised over $11.5M from top-tier investors, including Amplify Partners, Radical Ventures, Conviction Capital, Jeff Dean, Yann LeCun, Geoff Hinton, Adam D’Angelo to help make our vision a reality.

This role is based in Redwood City, CA. We are in person 5 days per week and offer relocation assistance to new employees. We provide visa sponsorship for candidates selected for this role.
