A little flex time

Purpose

We make machines understand language so that humans can achieve more.

About us

We are an open source startup that empowers developers to build flexible and powerful semantic search systems to query all types of data using our Haystack framework.

We are proud to announce our Series A funding 🎉. Find out more in GV ` s article here.

deepset is at the forefront of natural language processing (NLP) and we are on our way to becoming a standard for semantic search. Come join our team and work with tech experts on real-world cases, in a fast-paced and high-impact environment, and shape the NLP space together with us.

At deepset you will find an environment with equal opportunities to grow, share ideas, build relationships, and succeed. We believe every employee is important and generates a direct impact on our team's success.

Our daily meetings, the quarterly in-person "Re.Base", and the social events allow us to work with great synergy. We would like to invite you to visit our life page to learn more about our culture.

Flexible working approach

At deepset, we are a tech company with a more human touch. We’ve been a remote-first, flexible 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.

Below are our remote-first work principles:

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.

Why us?

Remote-first: You can choose to work from home or any other workspace that suits you. We offer a home office budget for equipment and furniture, and we would be happy to sponsor a co-working spot.

Connect: We have a virtual office, a monthly social budget to reconnect virtually or in person, regular walk and talks with colleagues from other teams, and a flexible travel policy that enables you to meet colleagues in-person when needed.

Re:base: Once every few months we meet in person. We believe it's great to still see each other occasionally IRL. We have good discussions, we do 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 the opportunity to be enrolled in the employee stock option plan and own a part of the company.

Personal time off: If you want to recharge and travel the world - there are 27 days of paid holidays.

Approach to diversity & inclusion

Our approach: We hire the best talent in the NLP space. For us, it does not matter where you come from, where you decide to live, or how you want to live – what matters is your passion for deepset. We offer an inclusive place for everyone that is part of deepset.

Exchange: We encourage the regular exchange of groups in deepset, e.g., parents, women in AI.

Unconscious biases: We remove biases from the hiring and promotion process by having clear criteria and guidelines as well as an interview process with different people from the team.

Micro-habits: We offer everyone regular 1:1 talks, as well as the option to regularly share feedback in the form of a pulse check.
