Who We Are

The Instil engineering team is responsible for building and maintaining all the features that power our product. We are a highly collaborative team who enjoys partnering with design and product to create delightful experiences for our customers.

In context, we've just begun our mission. Our near term goal is to set the foundations for a capable and extensible data platform while implementing basic features. In the long term, we want to provide a suite of data products that can include automation and prediction. How we enable and empower our customers with data in the future is something that will be discovered together by us and our future team members.
