Siri, what company should I interview with?

Picture this - you're in sunny Los Angeles, sipping a cool beverage by the pool having a chat with… a rocket scientist, a computational physicist and a speech scientist who is also a world-record-holding juggler! These are your co-workers, and the pool is next to your office, just a few steps away from your desk. Is this California dreamin? Not at all -- welcome to working at Gridspace, nestled in the Arts District in LA (also home to the west-coast HQs of Spotify and Two Bit Circus and the 2026 LA Olympic Village).

Gridspace began as a spinout of SRI, the lab behind Siri, with a multidisciplinary team of designers and engineers. Today, the company's software powers speech workflows for USAA, Santander and Bloomberg, among others. With Gridspace Sift, managers can quickly understand and act on events in live phone calls.
