Hello, we're New Knowledge
New Knowledge is the world's first platform for social media threat mitigation. Online communities are increasingly targeted and manipulated by trolls, criminals, even governments, who weaponize information to try and shape social media discussion. Our platform monitors social media to identify fake accounts, fake news, and propaganda campaigns.
Why Work with Us?
We are all very passionate about our mission and take our jobs seriously. Our culture is collaborative, creative, and action oriented. We are a group of intellectual people who like to be challenged and are also fun-loving, self described geeks who love topo chico and tacos.
An Insider's view of New Knowledge
What’s the vibe like in the office?
Relaxed work environment. Everybody is aware of what work needs to be done but nobody is too busy to help someone out in need.
What's the biggest problem your team is solving?
Weaponized narrative and disinformation campaigns are storming into our lives over the Internet. It is incredibly rewarding to have a career where you can detect these activities and protect our institutions and the communities and discourse around them.
What are some things you learned at the company?
I have learned how to incorporate feedback from users to make models and statistics to answer multifaceted questions about communities on social media. I have also had the chance build APIs around my models in order to make them more accessible to users.
What we do requires creativity from everyone in the company. The space is large and the problem unsolved - this isn't something anyone's built before. Our success depends on everyone looking for being resourceful and creative. We give people the tools they need, the problems we're facing and the guidance they may need to discover the right tools.
A slightly unhealthy obsession with protecting people, people who are driven to solve problems by relentless curiosity, and a technical ability to explore various data sets and persuasively present discoveries.
Where we are
We love this area because of all the amazing local spots to eat or grab a beer, close proximity to tacos is very important. We also have free parking.
