Play a crucial role in the growth and success of an ambitious, machine learning scale-up with an innovative and unique product.

Here's a bit about who we are... 

Every business in the world, in every sector, needs to know who they are engaging with. Xapien helps them answer that question – quickly and accurately.  

Our AI-powered automated platform revolutionises background research.  

Gathering meaningful and relevant information on who you do business with is difficult, expensive and time-consuming. It takes hours of manual work to find, review and analyse the ever-growing volume of data available. We enable organisations to gain a full picture of who they’re doing business with, in minutes.  

Xapien uses deep AI, NLP and machine learning to collate, read and distil vast amounts of online information quickly and comprehensively, in the time it takes to make a coffee. 

Our customers span some of the world’s largest corporations to niche consultancies and non-profits. But we’re not stopping there...
