About Symbl.ai

We are a Series A company ($24M raised in total), having signed a multi-year partnership with Google Cloud. We are focused on bringing our technology to market with the technical expertise and market understanding to support it. Our team has a proven track record of building large-scale and secure enterprise-grade developer products, ranging from API Gateways to the Conversation AI platform, and we are proud to say that our entire team is world-class.

The Symbl platform provides access to pre-trained language models (LLMs) through its APIs, which are custom-built using millions of spoken minutes to understand the nuances of meaning, sentiment, and intent in spoken language, as opposed to written text. We recognize that spoken language is at the heart of all communications, and it can be a challenging and costly endeavor to dissect the behaviors, syntax, semantics, and context that collectively give words meaning in voice.

As an organization, we firmly believe in equal opportunity and do not engage in any form of discrimination based on race, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, veteran status, disability, or any other legally protected status. We are committed to maintaining a diverse and inclusive work environment where every individual is respected and valued for their unique contributions.

In addition, our recent developments in Large Language Models (LLMs) and our cutting-edge Nebula technology have further expanded our capabilities in the field of natural language understanding. We are excited to continue pioneering advancements in this space while upholding our commitment to equality and inclusivity.
