Our Mission

Powering state-of-the-art Machine Learning and Computer Vision, Preligens aggregates information from multi-intelligence sources to provide its Defence and Intelligence (D&I) customers with strategic knowledge regarding mission critical areas of interest. The company is a global leader in AI-enabled D&I applications offering two major products, one solution based on Image Intelligence monitoring and one on Multi Intelligence sources.

Founded in 2016, Preligens' mission is to create tools to help intelligence professionals make better sense of copious amounts of data. The company uses Artificial Intelligence to automate the analysis of multi-source data to provide its Defense and Intelligence (D&I) customers with strategic knowledge regarding mission critical areas of interest.

In such a tech-heavy industry, women are still in the minority. That's why it's great to see that, at Preligens, diversity is a key priority. This is reflected in their policies—from generous parental leave, to objective salary grids, to unconscious bias trainings. The company has also appointed a People & Diversity manager to draw up a comprehensive diversity roadmap and ensure targets are met.

Our Values

BOLDNESS: Creating AI-based software for the defense sector requires a great deal of boldness, with high entry barriers and stringent technical requirements. Our challenge-driven mindset and our ability to think differently really push us to invent products that will revolutionize our clients’ uses, help them on a daily basis and build a safer world. It is also what drives us to set up ambitious policies that promote gender equality, such as ensuring 10-weeks minimum parental leave.

DETERMINATION: We go the extra mile in every project we undertake. We are committed to surpassing ourselves to take on the most ambitious challenges while remaining pragmatic and resilient.

EXCELLENCE: The nature of our clients’ missions requires them to set extraordinarily high standards in their work; we owe it to them to have the same mindset. Our pursuit of excellence applies to all areas, from onboarding new team members to developing new products and training our clients to use our solutions.

LISTENING: We are always attentive and listen carefully when interacting together, both internally and with our customers. Our products are developed in a collaborative process with our clients. We are convinced that knowledge sharing and collaborative work are the best ways to bring value. We invest in each individual’s ability to thrive in an environment that actively supports mentorship and training.

"It's not more difficult to succeed as a woman. It’s just that because you are being told that it will be more difficult to succeed that it becomes like a self-fulfilling prophecy. That’s why it’s vital to have strong female role models who prove that anything is possible."

— Amaury Mathivet, Talent Acquisition Manager at Preligens
