We’re named after Ada Lovelace
When it came time to naming their company, it was important to our Co-founders, Mike and David, that the name reflected the values dear to them. Ada Lovelace is widely regarded as the world's first computer programmer. She was ahead of her time in so many ways. Ada had the foresight to imagine the vast potential of computers — thinking outside of the box, challenging conventional wisdom and asserting herself at a time when a woman's voice was rarely heard. Her legacy looms large and inspires us to push the potential of machine learning, and to promote greater equity and diversity in and outside of our office walls. The name Ada is a true reflection of our values, and we are proud of our association with a true trailblazer.
When you join Ada, you become an Owner. This means each of us plays an integral part in making day-to-day decisions that have direct impact on our business, our clients, and millions of customers around the world. As we evolve our team and technology at rapid speeds, we as Owners, remain rooted in core values that maintain and strengthen our culture of diversity, collaboration, and growth.
