Work with us

Machine learning as a tool comes in many forms and can be used in myriad ways. We want to make Outerbounds as accessible as we can—so it works for everyone. Come let’s build the modern, human-centric infrastructure stack for machine learning together.

Let’s expand the outerbounds together

We believe that you will be happy and successful at Outerbounds if the following pre-requisites are met:

  • 01

    Individual-Role Fit

    Do you have the right skill set and mindset, personal interest, and motivation to grow in a particular role at Outerbounds?

  • 02

    Product Mindset

    Our overarching goal is to provide delightful and polished user experiences for our customers, including non-technical concerns like documentation and user support. Are you excited and energized by this overall vision and approach?

  • 03

    Not a Jerk

    We value humility, friendliness, thoughtfulness, and empathy highly. Will you thrive amongst colleagues like this?

Crucially, we are not evaluating you as a person. Even jerkiness can be a function of the environment and people around you, so we just need to evaluate the mutual match. Also, you can be a fantastic individual with unique talents, but we just don’t have a role for you today. For instance, as much as we might want to work with Barack Obama or Billie Eilish, we must honestly admit that we don’t have open roles that would make them or us happy currently. Maybe later!

As an early-stage startup, we don’t have clearly defined roles yet. At this point, everyone is expected to be involved in multiple efforts across the company. However, we know that there are dimensions of expertise that would complement our existing team and address our current business needs. Every individual has skills in each of these dimensions but we’d hope to hire people who clearly excel in at least one of the dimensions we are hiring for today.

Many companies call this hiring approach T-shaped. In the absence of clearly defined roles, we can loosely think that the leg of the T is the primary “role” that we are hiring you for. However, we don’t pigeonhole anyone based on a single strength: We love to support you in deepening other areas of your expertise and growing more legs for your T. A great thing about startups is that there will be many opportunities to learn and push the outer bounds of your expertise.

Below is a list of roles that we are hiring for at the moment and the characteristics that define them. Note that the job descriptions are not a list of requirements for every individual but rather a set of prototypical data points that help to identify the dimension.

A data future we all believe in

We see a future built on dynamic, data intensive systems that are evolving constantly. And to this end, we are building tools for data scientists and engineers to work seamlessly together with their existing infrastructure.
