Company Reviews

"I feel lucky to not only believe in the future of our technology and the success of the company as a whole, but the people I work with are also my friends. Sometimes I have to pinch myself to make sure it's not too good to be true!"

"Narrative Science is a place that fosters an incredible level of intelligence. However, even more than that, NS operates with the same level of teamwork and collaboration. If you come to work at Narrative Science, you not only are going to excel professionally, but you will also be welcomed into a close knit family and that's not something you find everyday."

"What I like best about working at Narrative Science is really a combination of three things: awesome, intelligent coworkers, a fascinating and truly compelling company objective, and really interesting work on until-now unsolved problems. I think it's fairly common for a company or a job to have one of the three things, but altogether it makes for a really unique, engaging atmosphere that I love to call my workplace."
