What colleagues say

Tuana, Developer Relations Lead:
“It`s a privilege to do my job while working with the incredible people at deepset, who I get to learn so much from coming into the world of NLP. Not only that, I get to dive into my role with an incredible community of developers from all around the world. What a company and community to do DevRel for!”
Bilge, Developer Advocate:
"What made deepset stand out to me was not only their focus on NLP and open source, but also their remote work policy and international team. Being a remote worker since the start of my professional career, I valued the flexibility that remote work provides. I can work from a coffee shop down the street or from a different country altogether. Moreover, as someone who has experienced the guilty feeling of causing people to switch to English when I enter the room, I was thrilled to be part of an international team that celebrates diversity."
