Similar.ai is a fast-growing start-up working with state-of-the-art machine learning to help our customers keep their sites' content optimised to how their users search. We believe that work is fun and that people are at their best when they enjoy themselves. We're based in a grachtenpand in Leiden, The Netherlands (although nowadays everyone is working from home).

Any fool can know. The point is to understand.

We work with some of the biggest sites in the world. By using an ontology of what people mean when they search, we help them optimise their pages so that users looking on Google can find what they have to offer. Day-to-day we talk to new sites interested in getting more done with less pages, work with customers to help integrate our deep understanding of search intent into their sites, build models of search intent and semantic matching, create new ways of scaling our data and add interfaces to highlight how our platform interprets customer sites.
