We revolutionize manufacturing
Founded in August 2020 with two international locations in Silicon Valley, CA, and Seoul, Korea, Gauss Labs is home to Gaussians who are enthusiastic about developing novel industrial AI solutions and software products to make factories more intelligent by leveraging machine-generated data.
We build technology to transform the industry for positive impact on the world.
Gaussian Core Values
We enjoy taking on difficult problems that do not have easy solutions and are fearless in experimenting with new ideas.
We pursue collective learning and growth by collaborating with each other and helping fellow Gaussians to learn new knowledge and skills.
We proactively seek problems to solve, think beyond assigned tasks, and consider the bigger picture for the whole company.
We are never satisfied with the status quo and constantly discover better solutions moving the world and the industry forward in science and technology.
Focus on the What and Why
We are professional problem solvers with a result driven attitude. We always get to the bottom of the problem in our quest for solutions. We care the most about what we solve and why we solve it. How to solve it follows naturally. We are not married to a specific dogma, and we try all available approaches imaginable. If none works, we shall invent one.
We insist on relentlessly high standards. We continually raise the bar and drive ourselves to deliver highest-quality solutions, products, and platforms. Although Gauss Labs has to find balances and trade-offs in many aspects of its business, we never compromise the quality of our work.
Learning with Growth Mindset
We constantly learn and improve ourselves without a predefined boundary on who we are. We may not know everything from Day 1, but we believe that if we learn smart, we become smart fast. We never fear to take risks and fail as long as we can learn from such experiences.
Readiness for Deep Dive
Although we can gain valuable insights from high-level perspectives and elegant thought experiments, we acknowledge that there is no truth except in the details. Whenever the occasion calls for it, we drive off-road and get our hands dirty. No task is beneath us.
Ownership and Accountability
Everyone at Gauss Labs is an independent decision maker. No one knows our own problems and projects better than each of us. Supervisors and peers can give advice, but ultimately each of us takes the initiative, action, and responsibility.
We achieve something that each of us cannot imagine ever achieving alone. We are confident that we can perform our herculean tasks as a team while complementing each other. We earn mutual trust by our current deeds as team members, not by individual past track records.
Open Discussion and Communication
We express our diverse opinions vigorously and clearly. While we respect one another for their capability, experience, and good intention, we are not afraid of disagreeing on paths leading to our goal. We extract the most out of each interaction by challenging one another and communicate the derived conclusion with simplicity and clarity.
