Under the hood, our platform is the connective tissue between AI and knowledge. It brings all of a companyโ€™s knowledge together, understands it at a deep level, provides industry-leading search relevance over it, and connects it to generative AI agents and applications.

Glean was founded by a seasoned team of former Google search and Facebook engineers who saw a need in the enterprise space for their technical depth and passion for AI. Weโ€™re a diverse team of curious and creative people who want to help each other get big things doneโ€”so we can help other teams do the same.
