We are now hiring


Want to build something special? We’re not just another start-up. At Kognitio, we’ve spent the past 25 years helping companies draw the insight from their data. In fact, we were doing big data when Hadoop was still just a kid’s toy elephant.

Join us and you’ll work on problems that our competitors don’t yet know exist. We’ll keep your skills sharp in a stable company where we maintain regular hours and where we focus on looking after our customers rather than having to chase the next funding round.
