Big ideas don’t spring from individuals. It takes an entire team united behind something big. Together, we work hard, we laugh a lot, we brainstorm nonstop, and we give the best high-fives in town.Senior Front-end Engineer (React/Redux/JS)
Everyday, mission number one is to create awesome time-to-value for customers looking to convert manage massive, diverse and very dirty data sets into profitable insights they can sell. With Unifyd, insights are created in minutes or hours not days or weeks.
Unifyd delivers access to tools and data to re-invent the way people work with complex, messy data. We have decades of experience in NLP, AI, Big Data & Databasing, Unstructured Data Management and Enterprise SaaS. However, we tend to ignore the way we’ve done things before, even though the new approaches drive complexity and challenges. If we can’t beat the old ways of generating insights we aren’t doing our jobs.

We start with people who are genuinely nice people to hang out with. Make sure they are super smart and motivated to twist data like a pretzel. Lastly, we have a no jerk policy…zero tolerance. No one likes coming to a company with a difficult person or boss.
When you focus on the right people, suddenly it’s possible to attack that big idea, crush extremely hard problems, and excite your customer base.
Our philosophy in a nutshell is “People, Product, Profit”. Great companies are created in that order.
