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!
