Recruit world-class talent. Scale an exciting and high potential Canadian startup.

We’re a small, diverse team working at the cutting edge of machine learning. At Cohere, our mission is to build machines that understand the world, and to make them safely accessible to all.  Doing so would not only fundamentally change the way that organizations interact with natural language data, but also enable people to interact with technology the way we interact with each other.   

Language is essential to humanity, but it can be difficult for computers to parse the syntax, semantics, and context that all work together to give words meaning.  This language barrier limits our ability to interact naturally with technology the way we interact with each other.  The Cohere platform will provide access to models that read billions of web pages and learn to understand the meaning, sentiment, and intent of the words we use.  

We recently raised our Series A and are focused on bringing our technology to market.  We will partner with customers so they can build natural language understanding and generation into their products with just a few lines of code. 

We’re ambitious — we believe our technology will fundamentally transform how industries interact with natural language. And we have the technical chops to back it up - Cohere’s CEO, Aidan Gomez, is a co-author of the groundbreaking paper “Attention is all you need”, (over 23k citations) and previously part of Google Brain.  Our entire technical team is world class. 

We are focused on creating a diverse and inclusive work environment, so that all of our team members can thrive. We welcome kind and brilliant people to our team, from wherever they come.
