“Like many others, I learned about deepset through the German Bert model. I`m proud to be part of a truly cutting-edge NLP company and excited to enable others to utilize our technology.” (Miriam, Applied NLP Engineer)
“I wanted to join an organization that checked off three essential attributes: leadership, culture, and product. deepset is at the tip of the spear in the ever-evolving NLP space and its direction includes a space where everyone’s work collectively makes an impact. What is equally impressive is the genuine culture of collaboration and respect, all the while keeping an eye out on the mission of delivering a product that provides business value. I’m really excited about where we go from here.” (Michael Solero, Account Executive in the U.S.)


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

Our mission: We empower developers to make NLP part of every application in every enterprise.
