Meet The Ontotext Team

If you are wondering who are the semantics masterminds behind Ontotext, here’s a little something for you: contagiously enthusiastic, intimidatingly bright and relentlessly driven. This is the Ontotext team.

We make miracles together with a few simple rules in mind: respecting each other, keeping our promises and delivering outstanding work.

To make sure we onboard the best and the brightest, every year we take part in a student hackathon called Best Engineering Week. We offer students a semantics challenge and, guess what, we hire the winners.

Based all over the world, we fully embraces geographic irrelevance and like to think of ourselves as digital nomads. Creative minds simply need space, diversity and inspiration to deliver that level of agility we’re capable of.

When we do get together in one place, though, magic happens. After all, who can resist insiders semantic jokes over delicious food? And let’s not forget the office shooting games…

Besides being supernaturally fond of semantics, our people are no strangers to testing their limits with extreme sports, hiking, dancing and motorcycles.
