An Insider's view of Deepgram

What's something quirky about your company?

I love the variety of backgrounds, and not just in job skills. When you have a conversation with someone at DG you are likely to hear a crazy story from somewhere interesting in the world or a weird fact from a random field that will make you smile and think. Fun, interesting and diverse people make a real difference to the culture.

Jeff "Susan" Ward

Sr. Research Scientist

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

As a Product Designer, collaboration is key. I bring in coworkers from different departments for workshops, ideation, and feedback sessions. I got regular meetings with Marketing to make sure design stay consistent between all touch points. Collaboration with engineers is a daily thing. Based on the project, I’m looking for insight from everyone.

What are some things you learned at the company?

Deepgram has been the perfect blend of skills I already have and skill I want to learn. In particular I have enjoyed working in a high performance computing environment using modern development tools like the Rust programming language. And among many of the most skilled engineers I've had the privilege to call colleagues.

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Flexible! There were moments where I had to suddenly take care of my family and Deepgram has always respected my work-life balance. Obstacles in life can be unexpected and Deepgram understands and trusts that I will achieve my goals while still providing support for my family.
