Here at Tamr, we respect, value, and celebrate the identifiers, characteristics, and perspectives that shape each individual. We believe that diversity is a key component of a healthy learning and working environment. Thus, we encourage everyone to bring their authentic self to Tamr. There is a serious lack of diversity within the tech industry — that needs to change. At Tamr, we strive to be part of that change through leadership and direct action. Join us in being part of the change.
Invest in yourself and each other.
Everyone is encouraged to grow in their time at Tamr, or as Tamr Co-founder and CEO calls it, their Tour of Duty. Andy has written extensively about his commitment to each individual’s journey in multiple blog posts about professional development and the link between happy people and healthy startups.
Work With Great People
We value working with people who are humble, hungry, and smart. At Tamr, hungry means eager for personal and professional growth and a commitment to support others in their development as we work together to build a company that matters. It’s not easy to do what we aspire to do. Sometimes the work is hard and hours are long. But working with great people in pursuit of an audacious goal makes it worthwhile.
What I enjoy most at Tamr is the ability to work in a supportive environment with extremely talented and friendly people on challenging problems that are fun and fulfilling to solve.
I have never been surrounded by so many smart people who aren't afraid to laugh at themselves. That mix of passion and humility is hard to find.
Even though I have only been at Tamr for 5 months, I see everyday how deeply and passionately each team member cares and believes in our mission. Each person here is extremely mission-driven and willing to do whatever it takes to make Tamr successful. It's an honor getting to work with such kind, dedicated, and intelligent people on a daily basis!
The team at Tamr is incredible, they hold me to a higher standard as much I do them. We do things that have never been done before, and that isn't something I have said many places in my career.
I enjoy being challenged every day while thoroughly enjoying the kind and intelligent people I work with.
It's often said that when you're the smartest person in the room, you're probably in the wrong room. Luckily, that's never a problem for me at Tamr! I'm surrounded by brilliant people who are always looking for ways to help me grow. Everyone here is so capable and willing to share their knowledge and experience with others.
For me, the most telling thing is that when I've been out of the office for a few days, whether for business travel or PTO, I miss the interaction with my coworkers and want to come back.
I love the fact that we are helping large brands solve age old problems in a new way. Everyone is super excited to be part of this journey - the energy in the office is very motivating!
Tamr's headquarters is located right in Harvard Square. As we like to say around here, Cambridge is our office.

Some Tamrs like to stay active and bike (or walk) to work.

One of the perks of working at Tamr is a generous technology budget, so Tamrs can purchase the equipment that works best for them.
There's always time for a little fun in-between meetings!
