You're looking for a team where you can drive decisions, be challenged and build a powerful and novel product. You want to collaborate with smart, creative, and energetic people. You’re comfortable with being uncomfortable. You look for projects where you can learn new technologies and techniques. You’re comfortable designing, developing, testing, and launching software. You’re creative. And if this sounds like you, you sound like someone we want on our team.

We're creating a platform to help understand and explore online communities. Day-to-day you’ll work with a rapidly growing team of software engineers, front end engineers, and data-scientists. You'll build out systems that can scale and are reliable. Collaborating will be huge, and there's a lot to do - there's no shortage of exciting work. There are a lot of resources available to us and you'll be early in the company. You’ll have a huge impact.

New Knowledge is on a mission to defend public discourse. We build products that repair online communities, identify manipulation, and help them communicate more authentically. In a world where social media is being manipulated on a massive scale, this is no small task. We care about protecting communities, brands, and companies from being targeted by the spreading of disinformation.

Insider's spotlight

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.

Jeff

Software Engineer

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 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.

Sandeep

CTO

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.

Ryan

COO
