    SoundHound Inc. is the leading innovator in voice-enabled AI and conversational intelligence technologies.

    We believe in enabling humans to interact with the things around them in the same way we interact with each other: by speaking naturally to mobile phones, cars, TVs, music speakers, coffee machines, and every other part of the emerging 'connected' world. Our latest product, Hound, leverages our Speech-to-MeaningTM technology to showcase a ground-breaking smartphone experience. Our SoundHound product applies our technology to music, enabling people to discover, explore, and share the music around them, and even find the name of that song stuck in their heads by singing or humming. And through the Houndify platform, we empower developers to be part of the speech-to-meaning revolution.

    Houndify is the first independent AI platform that enables developers and business owners to deploy it anywhere and retain control of their brand and users, while differentiating and innovating.

    Houndify provides all the technology ingredients necessary for voice and AI integration, including the world’s fastest speech recognition, the most sophisticated natural language understanding, easy to use developer tools, knowledge graphs, and a large and rapidly growing number of domains.

    Our voice search and assistant product, Hound, leverages our Speech-to-Meaning™ and Deep Meaning Understanding™ technologies on a consumer app experience. Our SoundHound product applies the technology to music, enabling people to discover, explore, and share the music around them.

    Our mission: Houndify everything.


    At SoundHound you'll be joining a diverse, world-class group of engineers, scientists, designers, and marketers on a team that includes both recent grads and seasoned veterans. We value curiosity, and the drive to make a difference. You might be a Ph.D from a top-ranked University or a self-taught accomplisher ready to join teammates who bring experience from prior industry stops at companies including Google, Amazon, Oracle, Sony, Apple, and Pandora.

    We also value creativity, innovation, hard work, open communication and fast iteration, which allow us to act on valuable feedback from employees and users alike. SoundHound's culture is one of highly encouraged contribution at all levels and constant informal collaboration. The hardwork is complemented by fun, including impromptu jam sessions, less-impromptu fitness sessions, group lunches, and regular happy hours.
