Enable AI to be used by anyone, anywhere.

Our mission is to have real, positive impact in the world by reinventing the way AI technology is developed and deployed into production with a next-generation developer platform.

We believe that AI is a net positive force in the world and will help transform it for the better. Our vision and mission are to reinvent AI infrastructure to advance humanity and our surroundings

Why Modular

After working for years at the world’s largest technology companies, scaling the world's largest AI work loads, building the hardware that powers them, and deploying AI to billions of mobile phones and edge devices, we saw that fragmentation and technical complexity held back the impact to a privileged few. The rest of the world isn’t benefiting as it should be from this transformational technology.

We aim to push the whole world of AI forward, not just a select few companies and products. To do that, we need to rethink the current AI systems and infrastructure from first principles to make it easy for anyone to leverage AI to solve the world’s most critical problems with software that just works. Modular and composable infrastructure that simplifies AI development and deployment is what the world needs.

How it started

Chris Lattner and Tim Davis met at Google and felt AI was being held back by overly complex and fragmented infrastructure. Motivated by a desire to accelerate the impact of AI on the world by lifting the industry towards production-quality AI software, they founded Modular.

Together with a team of the world's best AI infrastructure leaders - a mix of engineers, product managers, designers, and operational and infrastructure talent from the leading AI companies, we are reinventing and rebuilding AI for everyone.

Our culture and values


Build it right

Customers first

We build technology to lift the world by solving our customers’ problems. We are clear that our customers always come first, and we always deliver on our promises.

Build it right

We build high-quality production software that displays technical mastery inside and out. We make our infrastructure the right way as we understand compounding technical debt.

Drive results

When our customers and their people succeed, our company succeeds. No matter their role, every employee contributes to our collective success. We all win when we drive results that actually matter.


Empower people


We act on behalf of the entire organization and not just for ourselves and our local team. We operate on the assumption that each person is highly motivated and will drive their work with a bias towards action.


We are transparent by having decisions, calendars, directions, and plans open to everyone in the company. Anyone can constructively ask tough questions and feel safe to have answers provided directly.

Hire the best, never stop learning

We hire great people who seek to constantly grow themselves and others around them. Great people develop great people; they take coaching others seriously and look to raise the standards.

Have fun, live life

We believe people do their best work when they are happy.


Be an incredible team

Win together, fail together

Changing the world is a team sport. Individual wins, or mistakes, matter less than everyone winning, failing, learning, and growing together.

Own inclusion, be diverse

We build for everyone, and we are open to everyone. We believe that the best results come from a team that reflects the world at large.

Everyone has a voice

We expect the best concept, design, plan, or direction to succeed regardless of someone’s “rank” in the company.

Assume positive intent

We expect everyone to assume the best of others. We’re all human and often jump to conclusions; we want people to assume good intentions when we do.

Backed by the best investors in AI

Our goal is as enormous as it is profound. The only way to succeed is to build a different kind of company to achieve this.
