Job Description

Featureform's north star is to accelerate the machine learning process.

Machine learning teams work with thousands of features created by ad-hoc,
undocumented, and discordant data pipelines. Featureform untangles the mess by
standardizing how features are defined, managed, and shared. Join us and build
the new standard for MLOps!

We are looking for an experienced and entrepreneurial Staff Backend Engineer
to help fine-tune and scale Featureform's flagship product. This position will
be located in San Francisco with hybrid flexibility.
