We’re on a mission to bring people the knowledge they need to make a difference in the world.

That mission starts here.

Glean was founded by a seasoned team of former Google search and Facebook engineers, who wondered why we don’t have an easier way of finding what we need at work. In our personal lives, we have tools to help us find pretty much whatever we need. Why don’t we have that at work?

And that was the beginning of Glean.

We’re a diverse team of curious and creative people who want to help each other get big things done—so we can help other teams do the same.
