Who We Are

Deliberate Machine Learning

Hypergolic was founded with the mission to take the best practices from product management and software engineering and bring it to Machine Learning.

Our goal is to accelerate the speed data driven products reach production by better operational workflows and upskilling data scientists.

We believe success can be achieved with available resources purely by applying better processes.
