Looks awesome, are you hiring data scientists?

Unfortunately not yet, though maybe next year. But we do offer a $1729 referral award if you refer a fullstack or iOS engineer that we end up hiring.

That's a very particular amount!

Of course :). 1729 is the smallest number that can be written as the sum of two cubes in two different ways:

10^3 + 9^3 = 12^3 + 1^3

That's Hardy-Ramanujan number! :)
