An Insider's view of GumGum

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

What I have found most refreshing about the collaborative nature of the GumGum Sports team is the commitment to providing a fun non-work environment, as well. These activities, in combination with a generous and flexible PTO schedule, make the work-life balance at GumGum the best of any company I've worked for.

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

One of the challenges our team faces is training a deep learning model with minimal biases. The goal is to discern between safe and threatening content such that brands are only aligned with brand suitable content. Our priority is to ensure that our data is diverse and representative resulting in a model that is more objective than subjective.
