Kensho Company Overview

Kensho deploys scalable machine learning and analytics systems across the most critical government and commercial institutions in the world to solve some of the hardest analytical problems of our time.

Backed by investors as diverse as Google Ventures, Goldman Sachs, and In-Q-Tel (the venture capital arm of the CIA), Kensho was founded out of MIT and Harvard in 2013. Kensho’s team members come from veteran positions at Google, Apple, and Facebook, as well as academia.

We are a diverse and spirited group of engineers and scientists who are accomplished analytical thinkers and passionate problem solvers. Together, our multi-talented team includes one of the seven members of the original Apple iPhone engineering team, PhD physicists, Quantum Computing PhDs (including the creator of the world’s first solid-state two-bit quantum processor with electron spins), the co-founder of Nowcasting at Google, and one of the youngest-ever entrants to Harvard College (age 15).

We are proud of individual accomplishments, as well as the collaborative environment we’ve built, and what we’re capable of as a team.

What I learned at Kensho this summerI joined Kensho as a software engineering intern this summer and learned quite a bit. I thought it’d be nice to write about what helped me along the way. Instead of a laundry list of software I built, though, I’d rather go in depth about a few observations I made this summer.Gotta go fastA bit of context: this was my first time working at a tech company that had more employees than I can count on one hand. Up until this summer, nearly my whole understan...

A Day in the Life, a series started by Kensho’s Diversity and Inclusion committee, showcases Kenshins and their day-to-day experiences. Check out the Kensho Blog for more Day in the Life posts.My day starts at 6:15 am. I’m finding it easy to be a morning person lately with these long summer days and early morning sunshine. I stay in bed for a few minutes catching up on my news feed, social media and email. A few interesting new leads came in from the website while I was sleeping, which is a...

Separation of Concerns in Machine Learning Systems at ScaleWe love scikit-learn! Let me say it again- we love scikit-learn. It puts machine learning methods at our fingertips and simplifies chaining together complex models to understand our data. In fact, scikit-learn makes it almost too easy to use machine learning methods. You can call fit() with a neatly packaged estimator so quickly on some raw data that it’s easy to overlook data exploration. However, there are several design choices in ...

A Day in the Life, a series started by Kensho’s Diversity and Inclusion committee, showcases Kenshins and their day-to-day experiences.It’s 4:03am on a cold day in early January, and Jessi nudges Mark gently, “Can you change her?” There is, of course, only one correct answer to this. Mark lifts the surprisingly heavy Isadora, their beautiful 2-month-old baby, and zombie-walks down the hall from their bedroom to Isa’s nursery. In early-morning moments like this one, he always worries he...

Kensho’s Day in the Life series gives readers the opportunity to meet Kenshins and get a glimpse into their day-to-day.“Bye, Mama!” my little one sings as I kiss her goodbye and head out the door. It’s a little before 8:30 and I’ve already had a couple of hours with my girls greeting the day: getting everyone ready, listening to what’s on their minds, making them breakfast, packing lunches and backpacks, and walking my older daughter to the bus stop. I’ve also squeezed in a load of...
