Working at DeepMind

Our mission is to ‘solve intelligence’ and if we’re successful, we believe that AI will be one of the most important and widely beneficial scientific breakthroughs ever made—allowing us to tackle some of our most pressing real-world challenges, from climate change to radically improved healthcare.

This mission runs through the heart of the organisation—it's reflected in our work, our values and in our culture. We look for people who have a lifelong commitment to learning and who are passionate about making a positive impact in the world.

DeepMind’s groundbreaking work does not happen in a silo and we know that we achieve much more as a team than alone. That is why we strive to create a supportive and inclusive environment where collaboration is encouraged and learning is shared freely. We don’t set limits based on what others think is possible or impossible: we drive ourselves, and inspire each other, to push boundaries and achieve ambitious goals.

We value diversity of experience, knowledge, background and perspective and harness these to spot connections, solve problems and make extraordinary impact. We’re always looking for great people who will strengthen our team and drive our mission forwards.

Meet some of the Team

John Holmes

Systems Administrators

John is one of our Systems Administrators and joined DeepMind in January 2014. He provides ad hoc support and technical solutions for the entire team. Before joining DeepMind, John provided IT support for a team of 10 people and now works within our growing systems team. John’s description of DeepMind highlights the importance of  the people and culture:  “DeepMind is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Nothing compares. It's hard to explain to someone who hasn't experienced working here, as words fall short of how amazing it is. Being a part of AlphaGo and traveling to Seoul to help support the event was an incredible experience. I witnessed history happen at its very location.”

It’s fast, it’s exciting, it’s fun in a truly unique and special place.”
