Covid Response

The safety and health of our employees is our top priority. Since March of 2020, all Kensho employees have been working 100% remotely, and we’ve added some special benefits and perks to make working at home easier and more productive.

Kenshins do extraordinary work, which the company enables through a culture of trust and flexibility. This includes flexible work schedules, no-meeting Thursdays for heads-down work on complex tasks, daily reserved personal time and flexible Friday afternoons for testing new ideas, contributing to community impact projects or just starting the weekend off a little early.

We provide a $50 food delivery monthly credit for each employee and send healthy snacks to employees at home. We host regular (virtual) social events and team lunches to help employees unwind.

We also expanded our wellness program, which now includes a free monthly subscription to a relaxation and meditation app, as well as workshops and resources for parents and caregivers.

What do Kensho employees say?

ML Engineer
New York, NY

I'm a lot less cynical about finance than I was before. Having studied a lot of its more complicated products in depth, I understand more of their purpose, what they're trying to do, how they're trying to function.

UX/UI Design
New York, NY

Work-life balance at Kensho is perfect for me. You're given a lot of autonomy in work schedule and location. I have two small children and the rest of my family live in the UK. Working at Kensho, I'm solving really cool and interesting problems AND I get time to spend with all my family.

What makes Kensho so amazing is its intellectual diversity. At any one point, there's probably a high-level discussion about abstract type systems going on right next to a rip-roaring chess game, all supervised by two or three adorable puppies.

Kensh-ins know how to keep the work environment fun and lively. In the past we have had multiple social activities keeping in mind the diverse set of employees. We have hosted ping pong tournaments, TGITs, bowling, kayaking, board games, poker & trivia nights to name a few.
