All the tools you need to build better vision models, faster
At Encord, we're building the AI infrastructure of the future. The biggest challenge AI companies face today is actually not half as glamorous as the outside world may think: it's all about data quality. In fact, the success of any AI application today relies on the quality of a model's training data — and for 95% of teams, this essential step is both the most costly, and the most time-consuming, in getting their product to market.
As ex-computer scientists, physicists, and quants, we felt first-hand how the lack of tools to prepare quality training data was impeding the progress of building AI. AI today is what the early days of computing or the internet were like, where the potential of the technology is clear, but the tools and processes surrounding it are still primitive, preventing the next generation of applications. This is why we started Encord.
We are a talented and ambitious team of 53, working at the cutting edge of computer vision and deep learning, backed by top investors, including CRV and Y Combinator, leading industry executives like Luc Vincent, former VP of AI at Meta, and other top Bay Area leaders in AI. We are one the fastest growing companies in our space, and consistently rated as the best tool in the market by our customers. We have big plans ahead and are looking for a rockstar Commercial Associate to join us in building our GTM team.
You’ll be the driving force for Encord’s future growth and learn first-hand how to build a GTM function from scratch and scale to XX$millions in ARR.
You'll spend your time on two core streams:
Within 12-18 months, we expect you will put yourself forward for a team lead or managerial-level role, or you may choose to specialize in a commercial area (eg. sales, customer success, solutions consulting, product). Ultra-high achievers will be given the opportunity even sooner.
You may not have any B2B / SaaS sales experience but you will have excelled at something incredibly challenging that demonstrates your grit and ability to sell. For example, you may be a career changer who did well in a different sector like banking / consulting / something else similarly intense & difficult, but now want to go on this journey of learning to sell & building a business.
More about the role & Encord
Encord is a London-based startup building a comprehensive training data solution for computer vision AI applications. We are backed by Y Combinator, the Harvard Management Company, top industry executives, and other leading Bay Area investors.
Started by ex-computer scientists, physicists, and quants, we felt firsthand how the lack of tools to prepare quality training data was impeding the progress of building practical AI. AI feels to us like what the early days of computing or the internet must have felt like, where the potential of the technology is clear, but the tools and processes surrounding it are terrible. We have devised a unique methodology for automating the tasks related to preparing quality training data, in effect turning the training data problem into a data science problem.
