Leading document processing and data entry automation provider Hyperscience has announced that Francisco Uribe has joined the Company's leadership team as Vice President of Product. Uribe will be responsible for scaling the product team and managing Hyperscience's product and design strategy as well as roadmap. He will lead the product and design teams and report to company CEO and co-founder Peter Brodsky.
"Francisco is an astonishingly perfect product leader for Hyperscience," said Brodsky. "Francisco brings more than a decade of expertise in managing product strategy and operations in high volume, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML)-based organizations. We're working on some pretty big things, and Francisco is just the visionary leader to help us deliver."
Uribe brings more than a decade worth of experience in enterprise AI to the team at Hyperscience. After receiving his M.S. in computer science from Carnegie Mellon University, he founded startup BlackLocus, which built automated pricing engines for retailers. The Company was acquired by The Home Depot in 2012. After the acquisition, Uribe worked at Google for eight years, spending time on their Ads, Research, and Cloud teams. He most recently, was the Head of the Perception AI team at Google Cloud, which was responsible for Google's computer vision and AutoML developer platforms.
Commenting on the move to Hypersience, Uribe said, "I love our culture, where everyone, no matter how experienced or senior we are, can propose and work on ideas they are passionate about. Managers are coaches, not authorities."
Uribe is based out of New York City and outside of the office; he is an amateur triathlete in Olympic and Ironman distances and an avid reader of science fiction.
