VP of Engineering
"Working at Cambridge Semantics is like getting the best of both worlds: a dynamic, exciting startup environment along with a maturity that comes from having an established product and a leadership team with deep enterprise roots. Our engineers have been working on new ways to handle big data since before it was even a buzzword. I love being able to work on introducing ground-breaking technologies while also personally getting to experiment with the latest and greatest tools across the industry. Our flexible, open culture means there are incredible opportunities to have your voice be heard regardless of role or experience. Whether your interests lean towards front-end development, back-end, data science, you name it, there's a role for you in our rapidly growing team!"
Documentation Lead

"Working at CSI is fun, dynamic, and challeging. No two days are the same, and I learn something new by the hour, not just because the CSI solutions are complex but because the semantic web concepts and problems that the products solve are complex, interesting, and applicable to our virtual lives."

Field Architect

"I've been taken care of since I first started as an intern at CSI. I've put my heart into my work, but I've also been given all of the support I needed to thrive, and all of my contributions have been recognized."

"Even in the interview process it was clear that this is a place where the company values aren't just words on a page -- there's a real culture of trust and inclusion that makes you feel heard and valued. And the semantic technologies we work with are full of potential; there's always something interesting to work on!"
