An Insider's view of Molecula

What’s the vibe like in the office?

We're an agile team with incredible internal motivation. This creates a contagious energy that makes coming into work exciting and transcends into the remote workspace. With remote employees and a team in Palo Alto, we do a great job of embracing our diverse talent across the world while still acting as one. We love our weekly virtual happy hours!


VP Customer Success

What projects are you most excited about?

I'm most excited about creating UI that makes data more accessible and digestible for both non-technical and technical folks. Our UI empowers non-techies to understand trends and gain a high level view of what their data represents and allows more technical people to dig in deeper to all of their data without having a ton of setup work.


Frontend Developer

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

When I was making the decision to join, H.O. said to me, “this is going to be like getting 100 MBAs at once,” and he was not wrong. The career growth I’ve experienced during my time at Molecula has undoubtedly changed my life’s trajectory. I attribute this to my teammates, the problems we are solving, and the pace at which we operate.


Director of Product

What is your vision for the company?

We see a future where data is as ubiquitous as air and water and where any human or machine that needs input to make decisions can access any and all the data she, he or it needs. This ability to instantly access data will become a basic right and will lay the foundation for a super evolution that unlocks human potential in ways we can not fathom.

Higinio "H.O."


How does the company support your career growth?

The Molecula leadership team empowers everyone within the organization to explore their passions even if it's not within their job description. I started as an intern and didn't realize what an amazing experience it would be. I'm so happy I accepted my full-time offer and am an integral part of building the company's Sales and Marketing processes.
