Neo4j Internship project with an AI startup

Company introduction

We are an early stage, venture backed AI startup, formed with the mission of bringing AI technology directly to users with beautiful, human-centered design, and to build products that enable our users to accomplish more while maintaining a strong respect for user privacy. We hope to create a kinder, more human world with what we build – and our name reflects that. XOKind is an AI company, but it has kindness firmly at its heart. We strive to build an eXtra-Ordinary Kind of product (XOKind!), and we are launching our first product in the travel and leisure space.

We’re passionate travelers, scientists, product managers and engineers with a track record of using AI to power the next generation of applications and building successful companies. We are building a company culture of mutual respect, diversity of thought, performance excellence, and immense drive to achieve our mission.

We know travel is going to be back in a big way in 2021 and we’ve been incubating an amazing new tool for people to better plan their trips. Join us to help continue building the product that people will love for their travel.
