About the Company

Clarifai is an artificial intelligence company that excels at visual recognition. We do not sell abstract, futuristic technology - we sell a solution that businesses can use to solve real-world problems.

That’s why we build products to make it easy, quick, and inexpensive for developers and businesses to innovate with AI, go to market faster, and build better customer experiences. 

We have secured $40M in funding up to date, backed by Menlo Ventures, Google Ventures, USV, NVIDIA, Qualcomm, Osage, Lux Capital, LDV Capital, and Corazon Capital.  To continue to succeed, we need people like you to join the team!
