At The Disco, and many others.
We care about building a genuinely diverse team. We are a majority-first gen immigrant team and sponsor visas — we think that’s important as we build towards enabling easier digital migration.

Interests across the team span robotics, stand-up comedy, poetry, fandoms, fly fishing, deep learning, sociology, memes, jazz, skateboarding and much much more. 👐
