About Us


The Company

Deepinsight is a data science startup based in Oslo, Norway. At Deepinsight we are passionate about mathematics and data science. We believe that if used in the right way mathematics and data science can bring substantial improvements to people’s lives. In particular, we see a gap between academia and industry. Many organizations are unable to use the most sophisticated techniques as they do not have the data science expertise. We want to see that gap closed so that all areas of society can benefit from the latest techniques.

The Team

Deepinsight was founded in February 2017 and has since grown to 11 employees. We are always looking for exceptional people to join our team. Get in touch if you are interested in joining us.
