We are Cohere

Our team of ML/AI experts is passionate about helping developers solve real-world problems. From our offices in Toronto, London, and Palo Alto, we work at the cutting edge of machine learning to unlock the power of language AI for all developers.

Our Values

Cohere was founded by Nick Frosst, Ivan Zhang and Aidan Gomez, a co-author of the groundbreaking paper (with over 100k+ citations), “Attention Is All You Need,” which revolutionized NLP. As our company continues to grow, we are guided by our 7 values.


With great power comes great responsibility

Responsibility means more than getting the technology right. It’s about staying tethered to the societal impact of our work and anticipating risks — both in what we build and who we share it with.


We lead with trust and assume positive intent

We lead with empathy, we give trust freely and assume positive intent. We interact with each other humbly and judiciously and actively look for ways to make our coworkers and users feel special.


We are all co:owners, and we act like it

We show up and do what needs to be done; we do our work without ego; we ask for help when we need it and give help whenever we have a chance.


We create more value than we capture

Real-world applications and solving real user problems are our north star. They tell us where they want to go, and we figure out how to get them there.


We embrace a Beginner’s Mind

While we aim to be masters of our craft, we approach problems with a beginner’s mindset: humbly, and with curiosity and eagerness to learn.


A high bar is our floor

We want to be excellent across our product and all of our disciplines. No matter where we start, we continually look for opportunities to learn and improve, always pursuing excellence.


Work isn’t the opposite of play

We inject fun and lightness into our work to create delight and excitement from the time we log on. We can be serious without taking ourselves too seriously.


We want Cohere to be the place where everyone does the best work of their career. So we make thoughtful decisions about how we work, the perks we provide, and how we create a diverse and inclusive work environment. We also foster technical creativity and innovation through internal hackathons, demos, tech talks, and achievement recognition programs that form a cornerstone of our culture at Cohere.

Join us and work alongside some of the world’s best talent from the likes of Apple, Meta AI, Amazon and Google Brain, as well as full-time staff adjunct professors from Stanford, Oxford, and University College London.
