Meet some of our crew

We’re fortunate to have assembled such a great group of people who are passionate about their work. Browse through a few employee profiles to get a glimpse of what it’s like to work at Formation.

Data Science

We use data to solve complex problems

Our platform processes giant event streams of all kinds, identifying patterns, trends and opportunities to intervene and improve processes, aided by machine learning.

Praneet Mhatre

I pretty much love all things related to machine learning and data science, so I knew this was a team that I had to be a part of. I joined Formation when it was a fledgling start-up with only ten scrappy employees - now we’re a thriving company! We really stand apart because we respect end users and their opinions, while also pushing the boundaries of personalization technology. Our goal of leveraging Machine Learning to revolutionize the user experience also hit home for me.

Working at Formation has definitely been the highlight of my professional career. Every day, I get to work with the smartest, most driven and helpful group of people. I find balance between my work and “outside of work” life, by keeping busy as an unofficial personal trainer, nutritionist, and wedding photographer.

Dami Osoba

After getting my PhD in Physics, I turned to data science as I learned more about this growing field. I joined Formation because I knew I wanted to work with a company that positively impacted people's every day lives.

Since day one, we've been able to apply ML insights to deliver real business value. Our fast-paced, always-something-new-to-work-on environment allows us to apply ML to solve problems that have a tangible and measurable impact on our customers. Being surrounded by fantastic, engaging, and helpful colleagues is also a great perk. When I'm not guzzling peach La Croix while my models run, I play the shamisen (a three string instrument from Japan) and surprise my neighbors with mangled Japanese folk songs.

Project Management

We expect the best and lean on our scout skills

We work in small, self-sufficient teams with the shared goal of delivering excellent software anchored in an agile culture of quality, delivery, and innovation.

Stas Goldobin

Having called Ukraine, Israel, and the US my home, I’m so excited to now be in San Francisco working with a talented, kind, and curious team. At Formation, it’s incredibly fun making something as murky as AI comprehensible, useful, and applicable to business clients and their customers. It feels like you're giving your clients superpowers while bringing clarity and intention into their work.

As we scale, we are constantly reimagining ways for us to make machine learning useful in scenarios where "big data" is not available. When I’m not playing with data, I have fun playing with my daughter as we do sidewalk chalk art or teaching her to ride a bike.

Design

Human centered machine learning platform

Design cycles never stop and neither do our designers. The speed of progress keeps increasing and the combination of cutting edge machine learning and rapid feedback cycles provide a unique opportunity to craft advanced human centered solutions that solve complex problems.

Engineering

We share a passion for functional programming

Our reach is beyond 30 million users, making us one of the largest ventures using Haskell.

Customer Success

Our future is linked to the outcomes of our customers

We believe that each of our employees contribute to the overall success of our company and the customers we serve. However, it's our frontline support that provides a critical conduit of communication, management and action that keeps things running smoothly.
