Meet Nexthink at Scala Days

Inspiration can come from anywhere, and for Nexthink it was an advanced research project in AI at EPFL (Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne) in Switzerland that led to Nexthink being born! An IT director of an external company who was reviewing the project said that the research was so innovative that if it could be turned into a product they would buy it. Two years later that company became Nexthink’s first customer and 400 employees and 1,000 customers later, Nexthink team is sharing their expertise, presenting their career opportunities and mingling with Scala Days attendees at Scala Days Lausanne.

Learn more about Nexthink from Eshan Abdoolraman, International Recruitment Specialist, and meet the company at Scala Days Lausanne.
