Our mission is to change the way the world works by democratizing AI for every business, and to build a great company - that everyone loves being a part of. These two goals haven't changed since the days when Peak was little more than an idea forming in the heads of our founders Richard, Atul and Dave.
It's an incredibly exciting time at Peak; we're growing rapidly off the back of our $75m Series C funding round (2021), led by SoftBank, and we have very ambitious plans for the future.
We've launched a brand new software category, Decision Intelligence, which we want to spearhead and become the trusted, global voice of.
We're opening up the Peak platform to more organizations, empowering businesses to now build their own Decision Intelligence solutions and applications for the very first time.
All of this means that we're expanding our team rapidly, with huge growth plans in place. But we know that culture and success come hand in hand, so creating and protecting an amazing company culture that's true to our values remains really important to Peak and our mission.
