With years of experience in software architecture and engineering, their skill, perseverance and constant readiness, they are an essential part of the PromethistAI team.
We are proud to have a number of psychology experts from the National Institute of Mental Health Czech Republic on our team.

Linguists and UX designers
What would a Conversational AI company be without linguists? They are responsible for all the content in the apps. Not only do they ensure that the Digital Personas speak grammatically correctly, but they also orchestrate the complex structures of the conversations, which are the backbones of our products. On top of that, they make the interactions with Digital Personas engaging, informative, pleasant, and fun.
