About us

Texts are the fabric of the digital world. There’s so much information at our fingertips, but making sense of it efficiently is still very hard. deepset's mission is to break this barrier and empower any organization to harness powerful Natural Language Processing to efficiently access and comprehend any kind of data. We build software for developers. Our open-source project Haystack is already used all around the world and we set out to become the semantic layer in every enterprise tech stack with our end-to-end platform deepset Cloud. Combining an open-source project with successful commercialization is one of the key challenges in the tech industry today.

Why us?

  • Latest NLP: deepset is at the forefront of NLP, we are on our way to become a standard for neural search. Work with tech experts and shape the NLP space together with us.
  • Remote-first: We are building a remote-first organization. You can choose to work from home or any other place. We offer a home office budget for equipment and furniture, and we would be happy to sponsor a co-working spot.
  • Choose your tech: Linux, Windows, or macOS? Laptop or PC? The choice is yours and we will provide what you need.
  • Re:base: Once every few months we meet in person. We believe it's great to still see each other occasionally IRL. We discuss things, we do mini-workshops, we brainstorm, we have lunches together, and we have fun. We cover travel expenses for sure.
  • You are an owner: We offer every employee an opportunity to own part of the company, you will be enrolled in the employee stock option plan.
  • No AI hype: Work on real-world cases with realistic expectations about NLP capabilities. 
  • Fast-paced: Fast path to decisions and actions. A great deal of responsibility and immediate impact (no legacy).
  • Recharge: We all need time to recharge every now and then - or to travel the word - you will get 27 days of paid holidays (+ local bank holidays). 
  • Grow: Focus on professional growth, we have a budget for learning and further development of skills, possibility to speak at conferences, monthly internal hacky Fridays.

Flexible working approach

At deepset, we are a tech company with a more human touch. We’ve been a remote-first company from day one. Does this mean that our team members barely interact? Quite the opposite! From daily stand-up calls to quarterly in-person events, our team members frequently exchange ideas, collaborate on projects, and even socialize.

Read on to learn all about our remote work culture. We’ll list our remote work principles, explain the reasons behind them, and share interesting feedback from our team members. Let’s dive in!

Principle 1: Core Hours Policy for meetings.

Principle 2: Periodic exchange of Ideas and Feedback Sessions.

Principle 3: Quarterly In-person Team Building and Strategy Sessions.
