Our Vision: A World
Innovating Faster
Together on the
Problems that Matter

Imagine your best weeks as an engineer—flow, breakthroughs, inventions.
What if every week could be like that?


Solutions to Hard, Impactful Problems

Design and engineer modern machine learning platform to enable data scientists to put models into production and have the forecasts available in downstream applications.

Design and engineer a prediction service using wearable data to infer illness even before symptoms showed up.

Design and engineer an entity resolution system for disparate provider datasets enabling having the right conversation with the right physician about the right therapeutic.
Design and engineer data pipelines to aggregate and process disparate health insurer data to enable analytics on all of the data in one place.
Design and engineer a novel deep-learning framework for pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics (PK/PD) modeling, to replace more manual inverse modeling with more automated and generalizable forward modeling.
Design and engineer a data product to put various data layers into one app with a snappy interface, enabling better capital allocation decisions in a real estate investment company.
Design and engineer a recommendation system for post-acute care, using machine learning on data for millions of patients—and with sufficient model explainability for user trust.

Impactful Work

Others will actively use what you create.

We discover and develop software products—not research, not Powerpoint presentations, not Jupyter Notebooks. The most exciting part of the product development lifecycle is getting to v1 or v2, rather than v77 of a system that has been running for years. Because we partner with global companies, your code will affect thousands to millions of people.

Your work may even result in patents; several have already been filed and awarded based on our efforts.

New Products & Modern Tools

You will ship new products and use a variety of cutting-edge tools.

Our teams regularly work on new products, across data engineering, machine learning, and machine learning engineering. You’ll experience the entire product development lifecycle.

You’ll work with modern tools and applications, including Python and the PyData stack (including NumPy, Pandas, sklearn, SciPy, OpenCV), Docker, Kubernetes, Terraform, MLflow, Dask, PyTorch, Airflow, AWS (including tools such as Athena, Redshift, BigQuery, and ElasticSearch), Azure, Google Cloud (including tools such as TensorFlow), Apache Beam, Spark, and Kafka.

You’ll also gain insight into how to connect technical work to vertical-specific business processes, perhaps leading to software and ML-oriented company creation ideas.

Deep Work

We think deeply about problems to arrive at breakthrough solutions.

To enable you to do your best work, we minimize interruptions that take away from your ability to think deeply about problems. While meetings sometimes really are the best way to communicate, we try to keep them to a minimum. We have a culture that is largely writing-driven (for reasons that are similar to what's articulated here) to ensure that we are being efficient with our time.


Professional Growth

We give you opportunities to build your personal network and grow your own knowledge.

We actively invest in your growth—team members have been part of patent filings, academic publications, open source contributions, and of course, blog posts, magazine articles, and speaking at events. You’ll be surrounded by other exceptional engineers, helping you to grow professionally and personally.

We aim to make everyone 10x engineers through deliberate practice of making better decisions. We are particularly keen on mental models—both generally and around building data products. As an example, read about our Lean AI process.


Join the ‘Fold

We are a team of smart people working on difficult problems—but that doesn’t mean we don’t have fun together. Whether we’re talking over new ideas at a beer-garden Think ‘n’ Drink, enjoying some friendly competition on the go-kart track, or volunteering to sort produce at a local food pantry, we make time to build relationships on the team.

More recently, we’ve eaten socially-distanced pizza in the park and organized remote games of Among Us that include partners and kids. And we share A LOT of pet photos (including cats, dogs, rabbits, llamas, guinea pigs, and a bird).

Growing professionally and personally by working with other exceptional engineers in tackling challenging problems.



Making the kind of impact on other organizations and people that make every day fulfilling.



Optimistic, curious, humble, generous, transparent, and in control of our own destiny. That's Manifold.

Top-Tier Health Insurance

Manifold offers multiple medical plans to choose from, including a platinum-tier medical PPO, as well as a robust dental PPO and vision policy for you and your family.

401(k) Retirement Plan

Manifold automatically contributes 3% to your retirement plan in addition to your salary, with no vesting schedule or other gotchas. You can contribute in addition to that.

Work Smarter, Not Longer

We believe that doing creative, deep work requires working smarter—not longer—both as individuals and as a team. By removing extraneous meetings and interruptions, we're able to keep to a reasonable work week, with only the occasional push.

Vacations and Leave

Manifold offers flexible paid time-off, including self-managed vacation, personal, and sick days. If you need time away, take it. We know that we do our best deep work when we're healthy and recharged.

Parental Leave and Support

New parents may take up to 12 weeks of leave at 100% paid salary following the birth or adoption of their child. We also support flexible work arrangements to help team members balance family priorities with work.


Manifold provides a flexible environment for work-life integration. We focus on getting done what you promised, and leave it to you to attend to your personal and professional commitments.
