We're excited to announce that we've opened an office in San Francisco, the first of many steps in our post-Series B expansion plans. The SF office is where Clarifai is building a stellar machine learning research team led by Andrea Frome, formerly of Google Brain and the Hillary for America campaign.
As New Yorkers, we know we live in the world's greatest city. But, that doesn't mean we don't think San Francisco is a close second (joking, geez!). Really, though, we know there are tons of talented machine learning researchers and engineers out in Silicon Valley, so naturally, we decided to open an office in SF!
Our new San Francisco office will be focused on research, particularly Clarifai's unique brand of research which involves solving problems we don't have solutions for today so that we can productize the solutions quickly and make them accessible to developers everywhere. The research team is led by the amazing and talented Andrea Frome, formerly of Google Brain and Hillary for America. Andrea has big plans for Clarifai's research team and is focused on hiring a diverse and talented team.
"One great thing in terms of research for Clarifai is that there’s just so much. I want to build an innovation engine for the entire company that can advise, mentor and teach across the entire organization.” - Andrea Frome
Even though we're opening a new office, let's not forget our NYC HQ is growing like crazy, too! We've recently hired a handful of AI curators from Twitter who will help us create the best visual recognition models for every use case. On the business side, our focus is building partnerships with other great platforms. These efforts will be led by our new VP of Business Development Matt Molinari who has joined us from Indeed.
We're excited to share this news with the world, and we hope you'll join us on our journey - we're hiring for many roles from product to engineering to marketing to developer evangelism, so examine our careers page to see where you fit in the #Clarifam. Next stop, the moon!
