Head of DevRel: Python High-Performance Platform

Bodo.ai exists to change the face of high-performance style, big-data computing; to radically accelerate scale and simplicity for data-intensive applications, on any physical or cloud platform. Ultimately, we strive to change how the world will compute. And we’re looking for ambitious, hungry, talented individuals to help communicate and drive this change.

Our technology provides automatic parallelization and massive scale for analytics workloads including Python and SQL. This allows data engineers and data scientists to focus on solving business problems instead of dealing with the scalability and performance of their code. And it will radically democratize programmer’s access to research-scale computing that has only been available to a privileged few.

We are well-funded with an extraordinary set of excited customers, as well as brand-name technology partners. We are now looking for an ambitious and energetic individual to join our marketing team.
