Engineering at Vannevar Labs
Engineering team and processes

You will be the sixth member of the engineering team. The team collaborates on weekly sprint objectives and divides work into application and data, Vannevar's key areas of innovation, but the whole team shares ideas. The next people on the team will have a disproportionate impact on the success and direction of the company, and will play a role in setting the structure and processes the engineering team will follow. Vannevar currently uses Slack, Github, Jenkins and JIRA/Confluence.

Technical Challenges

The free world significantly lags its authoritarian rivals in intelligence investment. Vannevar Labs is working with our national security customers to overcome this by building the foreign intelligence platform of the future. This involves many technical challenges like architecting for simplicity of devops with on-prem deployment; scaling to arbitrarily large collections; securing against malign nation states; and innovating rapidly in a huge, critical industry known for slow development cycles and lackluster products.

We also apply the latest advances in deep learning to solve important and difficult NLP and CV problems. Our national security problems involve some of the most unique and interesting ML datasets in the world. For some, dealing with compute constraints and high volumes of data is important. For others, training deep learning models with limited training data is important.
