Software Engineer - Graph Data

| Greater Boston Area
At Kensho, we hire talented people and give them the autonomy and support needed to build amazing technology and products. To do this, we look for people who insist on a bias towards action to minimize unhelpful hierarchy and process.

An Insider's view of Kensho Technologies

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Kensho has a super friendly office vibe. People are genuinely happy to work here and it shows. I recently joined Kensho and as a "newbie" I have never felt more welcome at a company in my life. People go out of their way to talk to you, sit with you at lunch and get to know you. It's an amazing place!
