Data scientist

Job description

At Neople we're driven by our passion, experience, and interest in neural networks, LLM, and AI ethics. We take some pride in having started way before the current LLM/GenAI/ChatGPT hype. We believe that AI can do lots of good, but know it must be user-friendly in order to be widely adopted and not cause inequality gaps. Especially now.

Our shared goal is to make it super easy for people to access helpful AI assistants in the workplace and tap into the potential of digital transformation at work. That's why we're creating the most user-friendly digital co-workers powered by AI.
