About Hive

Hive is a full stack deep learning platform helping to bring companies into the AI era. Two Stanford graduate students determined to build practical applications using novel deep learning technologies founded Hive (https://thehive.ai/). From the beginning, we knew that high-quality datasets were critical to creating deep learning models. However, we also knew that the quantity of labeled data also has a huge impact on model performance. With this in mind, we first started by building a data- labelling platform specifically designed to solve machine-learning problems. This platform, Hive Data, is now the world’s largest distributed human workforce for data labelling and produces millions of high-quality annotations every day. Hive Data allows us to label uncommonly large datasets at a fraction of the cost that other data labelling solutions would charge. Once Hive Data was built, we were able to quickly label enormous datasets and rapidly build a suite of machine learning models that now form our core offerings in Hive Predict.
Our Hive Predict team has since built a wide range of custom machine learning models spanning a range of verticals including media, retail, security, and autonomous driving. Drawing on this experience and expertise, we then set out to build a stand-alone analytics platform for TV advertising called Hive Media.
Hive Media synthesises our company's fundamental technologies and leverages industry partnerships to deliver a truly revolutionary product. Hive offers the only true, full- stack deep learning platform in the world, assisting clients with data labelling, model building, and the development of full enterprise solutions. In 2013, we set out with an ambitious plan to build a unique full-stack deep learning company.
Today, we work with some of the largest companies in the world to redefine how they think about unstructured visual data and together we build solutions that completely transform verticals.
We are fortunate to be funded by leading investors like Peter Thiel (Founders Fund), General Catalyst, Formation 8, and others. We have ~100 people globally, based in our San Francisco and Gurugram offices.
About Role
Hive is looking for QA engineers to help build our quality assurance infrastructure and team. As an engineer focused on QA and testing, you have the opportunity to accelerate the delivery and improve the quality of our products. Your job is to accelerate product development by helping developers help themselves.
Our development team executes with such speed that quality assurance and testing has historically been overlooked. You will own the charge of quality assurance and testing, and naturally make it part of our culture and development process. We do not want to be known for having a “fail whale” counterpart for Hive – that will be your mission.
You will have full autonomy of the testing process, will own the components that you work on, and be involved from design through deployment to ensure we ship the highest quality mobile and web applications. You will also be a leader in helping build the QA team, which will match the speed and execution capabilities of our product and development teams.
