Chatting with Joel Springer

By: Hyperscience
Published: July 25, 2019

At Hyperscience, we work everyday to help enterprises process documents and extract valuable data insights more efficiently and effectively than ever before. We are particularly proud of the people who work at Hyperscience, and we are growing quickly across our New York City and Sofia, Bulgaria offices. With dozens of current openings, we reached out to Joel Springer on our People team about life at Hyperscience.

I joined Hyperscience for two reasons: the people and the product. In the interview process I was thoroughly impressed by how each Hyperscience employee is an expert in their field, well-versed in ways of working, but also always looking to challenge the status quo and question conventional “best practices” in order to discover what actually works.

The product itself is fantastic. It reduces slow, costly, error-prone manual work for our clients and frees them up to focus on providing value to their customers. We solve a real pain, which is taking the influx of documents (direct deposit enrollment form PDFs, scanned checks, faxed change of beneficiary forms) and extracting the relevant info into a data file that can be read by other systems. With Hyperscience, customers can process documents and get that information more efficiently, effectively and accurately than previously possible. Employees can spend less time identifying documents and entering data and more time working with customers. Everybody wins.

The most rewarding part of my job is that I get to share the Hyperscience story with our candidates every day. I get to be an evangelist of the innovative, impactful work being done here and invite others into a process of discovering all HyperScience has to offer.

We are growing fast – there are over 30 open roles right now across every team, which means new team members are joining the company every week. We have particular areas of growth in engineering, product, sales and marketing, and we’re bringing on new people to enhance our existing solution and design entirely new products and features that will continue to wow our customers. You can discover more opportunities here.

Hyperscience is definitely not a place where micromanagement thrives; we look for quick learners, who are tech-savvy and prefer to wear multiple hats and make a difference where it is needed. Our managers meet regularly with their team in group and 1:1 settings to foster an environment where feedback, mentoring, problem-solving and celebrating success thrives.

Hyperscience is progressive; we challenge old ways of thinking and care about each other’s success. We treat each other like adults and believe that any employee could hold the company’s next big idea or initiative. We genuinely enjoy what we do, and we’re looking for people to join our team. If you have a question or are interested in a position, email me directly!
