When the elevator doors of 121 S. Broad St. open into Guru, you’re delightfully surprised by the sense that you’ve entered someone’s home.

A sprawling, larger-than-life, urban industrial home sprinkled with eclectic living room spaces, but a home nonetheless. Plus, the dogs really seal the deal.

The software company is unique in that its founders decided to forgo the pressure cooker workstyle of many startups and replaced it with a deliberately relaxed vibe that has allowed its team to focus on building a quality product.

Guru believes that the knowledge you need to do your job should find you. By using machine learning, Guru helps clients tap into their company’s collective knowledge by getting to know their people and the information they need — from the documents they frequently search for to the most commonly asked questions by their peers and customers. Ultimately, Guru increases efficiency and confidence that can allow users to focus on other facets of their interactions.

Guru’s intentional mindset has allowed the startup to grow and evolve its knowledge management tool at a controlled pace, keeping the internal culture intact and employees connected to one another and the company’s mission.

The approach has paid off with CEO Rick Nucci recently being named one of the 50 Top CEOs by Glassdoor. It also earned the company $25 million in Series B funding at the end of 2018.

As its product has evolved, so has its need to hire new team members. Already moved into a second floor of its Broad Street building, Guru has its eye set on doubling its workforce.
