Job Description

At Starmind, we believe that the combined knowledge and cognitive capabilities of humans far exceed any existing technology's computing power; thus, we developed AI to empower and enhance rather than replace the human mind.

Our platform helps expedite people's advancement by exploring undocumented human intelligence and enabling real-time access to skills, knowledge, and solutions within corporations, communities, and, since we like to think of the bigger picture: the world.

We are backed by some of the best VC investors in Europe, becoming one of the fastest growing AI companies in Europe; and are rapidly expanding our team with the crème de la crème from Airbnb, Twitter, Salesforce, Zuora and many more.

Do you have what it takes to help us shape the future of AI?
