Today marks the 1-year anniversary of Mighty Ai joining Uber ATG. Time flies. It is somewhat crazy to say that I have been, more or less, with this crew for over 5 years now. And it continues to be a fun rollercoaster of a ride personally, professionally, and emotionally. I will happily admit, more highs than lows. Though it has not been easy, I have grown a lot.
I have made a ton of friends along the way and have seen some come and go. Watched our product go from a purely iOS app crowdsourcing annotations for companies like Bing, Snapchat, and Pinterest to being laser focused on building out labeling products for the self-driving use case at Uber ATG — and everything in between. The evolution has been eye-opening and gratifying to be a part of. We have moved in and out of 4 different offices and have visited offices and customers all around the world — Boston, Pittsburgh, Boulder, Austin, San Francisco, San Jose, Stuttgart, and Bangalore. We just keep moving forward.
I always see myself coming back to the experience. There is a joy with the process of building amazing products with a group of extraordinary individuals looking to make a dent in the world, especially now in self-driving. I sometimes cannot describe the feeling, but when you have that alignment — it works, and it is such a rush. I experience that a lot here and that is why I probably have stuck around for so long.
I look forward to seeing where this rollercoaster goes, and will continue to make moves to build some amazing products along the way. Cheers! 🥃
