Director of System Integrations, Riffyn (Oakland, CA or US East Coast)

A Mission to Reshape Science

Breakthrough discoveries once occurred when scientists like Alexander Fleming noticed a halo of dead bacteria surrounding a mold colony. But today’s breakthroughs often go unnoticed because they are buried in uninterpretable spreadsheets, inaccessible data, or excessive experimental noise. Riffyn’s mission is to unlock the full potential of today’s science by delivering clean, connected, meaningful data the moment it is collected.
