THE PEOPLE OF SENTIENT

Sentient has carefully crafted a culture that can be summed up in three words: ambitious, innovative and ego-free. Knowledge sharing and cross-disciplinary education are a way of life here, and it takes a certain kind of openness to fit in. From participating in our weekly educational lunches to one-on-one discussions, the common thread that runs through our culture is curiosity and a passion for learning.
