An Insider's view of PathAI

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

We’re really flexible - there are no on-call shifts, and you can work from home when you need to. A lot of my colleagues have young children and they can be there for their family. We all work hard, but the work is task-oriented and day-to-day workload is actually realistic.

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

We hire smart people to solve hard problems early on, and just let them do their thing.
