• WE ARE HIRING

  • OUR VALUES

    Our core values are inspired by a bold vision for the future of artificial intelligence in society.

    BE RIGHT

    Data is crucial to our work in delivering empirically-grounded results and recommendations. With overall impact in mind, we work quickly and collaboratively to implement the most persuasive data-driven campaigns.

    BE GOOD

    As artificial intelligence expands its reach, there are people who intend to use its enormous potential for evil. We actively use our technology against them, serving the common good, supporting social causes and reinforcing democratic values.

    BE HUMAN

    We know that some problems are too complex to be solved by algorithms alone. Therefore, we place our trust in technology that augments human intelligence and human ingenuity with key elements of machine learning.

  • THE AVANTGARDE

    Our cross-disciplinary teams of experts work directly with clients to solve their biggest challenges with data-driven strategy and technology.

    DATA SCIENTISTS

    Digital masterminds

    Our data scientists analyse large amounts of data to help clients gain a competitive edge. They carefully review tactics used by rival campaigns and neutralise them with our own intelligent solutions. Our teams work in a fast-paced environment, building predictive models, innovative tools and novel data visualisation for our clients.

    POLITICAL STRATEGISTS

    Tactical advisors

    Our experts in political communication devise strategies to identify and activate influencers and supporters. They work closely with our data teams to help craft the most persuasive messages. Together, they work with you to listen and learn about your goals so that we can fully understand the impact you seek to maximise.

    BEHAVIOURAL RESEARCHERS

    Explorers of the human mind

    Our researchers have a broad range of backgrounds such as behavioural science, cognitive science, network science and social psychology. Their insights are crucial to our understanding of group dynamics, social influence and behaviour change. We use this knowledge to encourage people to make smarter choices.
