Dotscience is shutting down

/blog/2020-05-19-dotscience-is-shutting-down/images/featured_hu3d03a01dcc18bc5be0e67db3d8d209a6_154143_1595x1148_resize_q75_box.jpg

It is with great regret that I announce that Dotscience is shutting down with immediate effect. The global economic situation has caused our source of funding to cease and, as we have been unable to secure alternative funding we are now closing all our operations.

If you are a customer or partner, you should already have heard from us. For everyone we have worked with, thank you for your support and input over the years. Thank you in particular to everyone who has played a part in our mission to bring DevOps best practices to the world of AI/ML including our amazing team who have worked so hard to deliver on that mission, and our valued early customers and partners.

The following team members are actively seeking new roles elsewhere, please email me on [email protected] if you are interested in any direct introductions. I can heartily recommend every single one of them. Also please reach out to me if you want to chat about anything at all.

With warm regards,

Luke Marsden
