About Matroid

With the rapid growth of artificial intelligence, more and more expert knowledge is required to use cutting edge AI techniques to solve real world problems. At Matroid, we’re building an intuitive product that allows anyone to train and deploy computer vision models without needing to know how to write a single line of code. Founded by a Stanford Professor in 2016, Matroid has raised $33.5 million in funding, and the product has been successfully used in a range of security, manufacturing, and industrial IoT applications.

You’ll be working onsite at our Palo Alto office, located near the Stanford campus and Caltrain.
