Our Team

We use modern tools to build groudbreaking solutions to challenging problems.

Given only public profile information, how do you determine whether or not someone is open to new career opportunities?

Our Pods

Our engineering team is organized into multiple cross-functional “pods” which include software engineers, data scientists, and product managers.

Intelligence & Discovery

The Intelligence & Discovery pod's mission is to support both our Envoy and Search products. They use the latest AI technologies and machine learning models to find the most relevant candidates for a given job description from our candidate database. Their work empowers users to search for candidates while offering to do it for them.

Track

Recruiters send a lot of email. It's a numbers game. But, some recruiters are much more effective than others. The Track pod's goal is to provide actionable insights based on our proprietary email data that help all of our customers raise their reply rates.

Core

The Core pod builds and improves the foundational features and data on which Entelo's products and users rely. We work to understand fundamental user needs and create experiences to solve them. To ensure that users are working with the best candidate data possible, we process up to 2TB of public social data per day, performing entity resolution on billions of social profiles.

Infrastructure

Systems don't design themselves and application engineers don't always know what's possible. Our Infrastructure team acts as an enabler and consulting partner with our software teams. They build the things that enable others to build more things.

Our Stack

We use modern tools across our entire stack.

Jason is truly a code ninja, in the sense that he always wears the same clothes and keeps trying to sneak Cassandra into the tech stack in the dead of night. Other than that he pretty much just sits there calmly, like a very productive code abalone.

Alan loves his wife, his kids (twins), Star Wars, photography, drums, Ruby, and web design, not always in that order. His favorite tools are Git and RSpec because they are like magic. Meeting Chewbacca was a defining moment in Alan's life.

I love Taco Bell. People think it’s a bit, but it’s seriously not. Taco Bell is great! There used to be one near our SF office, but they didn't serve Mexican Pizzas at that location, and now they're closed. It's fine though; there's another one in SOMA and I personally don't mind a nice walk.

Ramil Mustafin

Ramil loves building products, can ride 1000 miles on a motorcycle in 24 hours, and is also a bandwagon warriors fan.

Darwin D. Wu

Senior Infrastructure Engineer

Pronouns: he/him/his

Darwin grew up in China, Singapore, England and Japan. He would suddenly switch to a different language during a conversation, leaving the counterpart in a super confused/awkward situation. Also you need to be very specific when you ask where he's from, because he will reply with a question asking mentally or physically? But usually the answer is always "I don't know :shrug:".
