What we do

At SiaSearch, we create the category-leading search engine for time series and sensor data which acts as the backbone for data-driven development in various industries from robotics to finance. We are building unique technology, that automatically indexes, structures, and evaluates petabytes of raw sensor data based on intuitive semantic attributes and keywords. Based on that processing, our query engine enables users to access the data at unprecedented speed, quality and depth. This does not only critically accelerate the development and deployment of data-driven applications such as machine learning, but also makes data storage more efficient by focusing on the important portions of the data. We are currently working with multiple leading automotive OEMs, Tier 1 suppliers as well as smaller companies to speed up and improve their software development.

Our team is made up of entrepreneurs, scientists, and engineers from premier universities around the world (ETH, Oxford, TUM). Many of us have PhDs and work experience at top tech companies. We’re based in Europe’s startup capital, Berlin, and are growing quickly!

Company Culture & Benefits

We believe in ownership, flat hierarchy, and direct communication, which means that we operate and learn fast, as a team. In addition to a competitive salary and fringe benefits (like company hardware or company lunches), the following aspects are central to our company culture:

  • Work-life balance: some of us come in during regular business hours, and some of us prefer to start later or earlier. We are a fully trust-based organization and belief in the ownership and responsibility of our people.
  • Professional Development: be it seminars, workshops, conferences, or other methods, we encourage our employees to continuously develop their personal skill set.
  • Collaborative Culture: we have regular off sites and team dinners. If you want to participate, that’s great! And if you don’t, that’s fine too.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity.

We strongly encourage individuals from groups traditionally underrepresented in tech to apply, and we can help with immigration.
