Lead Product Designer

At Xapien we are re-imagining how humans extract knowledge from the internet.

Every business, charity, and institution in the world, in every sector, needs to know who they are doing business with. Xapien helps them answer that question – quickly and accurately. Using machine learning and deep natural language processing, we are re-imagining how machines learn and reason about knowledge.
