Our Core Values

1. We are one team - We are one team with a single goal - to build an amazing company. If the company wins, we all win. We build the team by looking for amazing teammates who will elevate the team over individual genius.

2. Always improving - We believe that best people never stop learning and growing and that the only way to do that is to be humble and eager to be better. We crave feedback, we aren't defensive, and we internalize it. We are also equally as comfortable giving constructive and helpful feedback.

3. We are all owners - We empower everyone at the company to own their work. Owners want lots of responsibility, have authority and freedom to make real decisions, surface bad news quickly, and ask for help when they need it. A company of owners also means that ideas come from everywhere, that we all learn from each other, and titles and seniority don't matter.

4. Scrappiness - We are trying to do something transformative while also taking on the biggest and most resourced companies in the world. The only way we can pull off the impossible is to simplify everything to its core, only spend time and money on what truly matters, and work very, very, very hard.

5. We have fun - Building a company is hard work, but is also needs to be incredibly fun and rewarding. We don't just work together; we also make the time to have fun. This includes team outings, dinners, ping pong, halo and clipper games.

Our challenges

We have been solving hard problems from the beginning and we have many more to go!

We have built cutting-edge Android and iOS data collection SDKs. We have licensed our technology to companies with much bigger teams, who failed to build the same SDKs. Our data processing pipeline receives over 1.4 TB of sensor data/day. Cleaning, storing and processing that amount of data in a cost-efficient manner is a great challenge! We have built a complex data modeling pipeline, which evaluates the sensor data through multiple models and then fuses the results to come to the final conclusion. We also need to match our sensor data to a real world place (e.g. McDonalds, Nike store, laundromat). There are many datasets available but all have weaknesses. We are working to smartly fuse them.

If these types of problems excite you, you are the correct person for us!
