Careers at Xineoh

We are looking for professionals to join our team

Xineoh made waves in 2017 when we secured $2m venture backing out of North America for our AI platform that can deliver industry-leading automated consumer behavior predictions for companies using their raw unstructured data, such as invoices, etc. We provide the results in as little as two weeks. On the well published MovieLens Data Set VentureBeat called our out-performance of our closest competitors "scary". Given that we convert a company's data lake into actionable insights, the scale at which we work is enormous. The smallest data sets are in the 100GB range and go up to PetaByte sizes.

Xineoh recently closed its B round, and we have subsequently moved our offices to Hyde Park, Johannesburg. We are currently recruiting engineers to help fill the massive demand for our product and to help our results become even better (scarier).

Two types of people love working at Xineoh, those who are fanatic about being the best in the world and those who constantly feel like square pegs in round holes wherever else they go. If you are incredibly smart and hard-working, but very bad at interviews, politics and other social situations, we will probably love you.

Xineoh offers free daily lunch and a bi-annual performance bonus structure composed of a combination of cash and stock options.

We won't lie, though, you will work harder here than anywhere else because being the best does not come without a sweat.
