An Insider's view of New Knowledge

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe in the office is genuine and welcoming. Too many times tech companies try to contrive their culture, and tell people how they need to act. This couldn't be more different from New Knowledge. It's an environment that celebrates individuality, and welcomes new ideas.

Chelsey

Demand Generation Marketing Manager

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.

Dakota

Software Engineer

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.

Becky

Data Scientist

What makes someone successful on your team?

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.
