Developer platform for building great AI applications
Joining Vellum this early means that you’re going to play a huge part in guiding both the technical and cultural evolution of the company. Together, we’re going to face the hardest technical challenges this journey has to offer head on. As the team grows, you’ll be the battle hardened expert that everyone looks towards for guidance.
With great power comes great responsibility 🙂
In case you’re curious:
At Vellum, our mission is to be the primary platform companies use to bring AI into production. AI is the biggest platform shift since the internet, the applications are everywhere! With foundation models getting better we expect the world to be dramatically different in the future. We intend to be the platform layer to bring this amazing technology to life in production use cases.
We enable companies to bring real business value from AI / LLMs. The output generated by AI / LLMs is usually stochastic and bringing AI into production requires robust testing and choosing the right model for the job. We’ve seen companies spend weeks of engineering time building good tooling for this (time which could be spent on their core end user facing product) and despite this they struggle to get the best results out of these models. Our platform provides companies best in class tooling to use their own data in production AI applications.
We launched 3 months ago, have 30 paying customers and a waitlist of over 600 users. We’re a YC company and backed by top investors like Rebel Fund, Arash Ferdowsi (co-founder of Dropbox), Dharmesh Shah (co-founder of Hubspot), Dan Scholnick (board member of Weights & Biases, Docker, New Relic), and Divya Bhat (former YC group partner, 2x CEO). Here’s our Hacker News launch post: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=35042836
We’re excited to bring on the first few new members to the team. The initial team will play a key role in the long term growth of the company.
P.S: Why the name Vellum?
