Engineering team and processes

Our engineering team is divided into infrastructure, product platform and application teams. Each team plans tasks around quarters and weekly sprints. Once a week, we have a company all-hands where we discuss top priorities like specific customer proof-of-concepts (POCs) and hear updates from all the teams. We are continually improving our processes around code reviews, documentation, testing, QA, CI/CD and developer tooling. We currently release code to our enterprise customers every 2 weeks.

Technical Challenges

Many of our technical challenges relate to extracting structure data from messy real-world documents. One of our first applications was a tool to automatically generate programs for extracting data from a few training examples. Our customers are looking for state-of-the-art machine learning and image processing solutions to their document recognition problems.

Our infrastructure team is constantly upgrading our systems to meet growing customer demands, from processing throughput to handling 10k+ page documents, as well as handling an increasingly diverse set of applications. Our applications range from NLP-based content analysis to image recognition problems requiring image processing and deep learning.

Projects you might work on
  • Search for news articles connecting our customer to certain topics (e.g. data privacy, class-action lawsuits), and detect negative vs. positive sentiment.

  • Create common frontend components for viewing and annotating documents that can be shared across all our document-based applications.

  • Train a state-of-the-art OCR model using synthetic and open-source datasets and deep learning techniques.
