Mighty AI Opens a New Office in Boston

Mighty AI Opens a New Office in Boston

Mighty AI is headed to Beantown! We’re thrilled to add to the entrepreneurial energy of Boston’s thriving startup scene as we celebrate the opening of our newest office this week.


Autonomous driving activity is heating up in Boston. Two startups that have spun out of MIT— nuTonomy and Optimus Ride— as well as Tier 1 supplier Delphi are testing vehicles on the city’s streets, the Toyota Research Institute set up shop in Cambridge, and local lawmakers are considering a number of issues that will impact autonomous vehicles. Our new digs in downtown Boston will serve as home for Mighty AI’s East Coast operations, allowing us to better support our customers in the region as well as in Europe. We also have team members at our offices in Seattle, WA, and Detroit, MI.


We work with more than a dozen of the world’s leading automotive OEMs, suppliers, startups, and disruptors to supply the data they need to build their computer vision systems for autonomous vehicles. Our customers are in a race to solve what is perhaps the greatest technological challenge of our generation, one that has the promise to save tens of thousands of lives each year and open up access to transportation for millions of people. One of the biggest blockers they face is making sense of the massive amounts of data vehicles collect every day. Estimates show a typical vehicle will collect upwards of 40 terabytes of data per day. Mighty AI’s suite of data as a service offerings for supervised machine learning provides our customers the high quality data they need to train, scale, and validate their models.


As we continue growing and adding to our team—which we expect to reach 70 employees by the end of 2017—Boston is an ideal location for Mighty AI. The city’s academic institutions are second to none, producing much of the top talent working in AI and machine learning today. We’re excited to recruit locally and plan to hire about 20 employees in the area over the next year. Mighty AI Chief Revenue Officer Eric Webster will head up the office, and we plan to hire for a number of roles, including in sales, technical account management, and technical project management. (Psst! Check out our current open positions!)
