An Insider's view of Hyperscience

What are some social events your company does?

Outside of company-sponsored lunch daily, we do birthday & anniversary celebrations, dessert breaks, and company outings. It’s pretty common to get together for drinks after work or go to karaoke as a team. When our team from Sofia visits, we like to do something social outside the office, whether it’s lunchtime basketball game or rooftop drinks.

John Lee

Talent Acquisition Lead

What projects are you most excited about?

We’re working on building a Machine Learning model that allows our customers to process more types of documents, which will help significantly with their workflow. I’m excited to visit customer on-sites to see how different customers use our product. We’re here to make people’s lives easier so understanding specific use cases is always valuable.

Product Designer

What are some things you learned at the company?

I’ve been at Hyperscience for more than a couple of years now and seen it grow 4x(!) in that time. The two most important things I've learnt in my time at Hyperscience have been learning when to ask for help and bias for action -- most actions can be reversed; the only way to never break anything is to never actually do anything.

Akhil

Director of Machine Learning

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

We operate a growth mentality across all aspects of our business. Every team member is expected to go radically beyond normal expectations. This requires bold ideas coming from everyone. Once we choose a path to follow, we will all get behind it, irrespective of whose idea it was.

Charlie

Chief Operating Officer

What makes someone successful on your team?

A successful member of our team is someone who shows up and gives 110% every day, is not afraid to ask for help and uses constructive criticism to better themselves. We represent the entire organization with new clients, and we’re excited to be the first touchpoint that works to understand their pain points and articulate our mission and value.
