What is it we do?
Our goal is to help journalists and content creators to do their best work and stop the spread of misinformation. Based on cutting-edge AI and NLP we develop tools that automate fact-checking and research. Our patented solution is based on years of research at the University of Stavanger.
In a short period of time, we raised funding, built several prototypes, landed the first pilot customer and expanded our team. Now we are looking for a new addition to our team, a full-stack developer that can help us to amplify the quality and efficiency of our products.
Why you will not regret joining our team
We want to build products that really make a difference for our customers. It is a very ambitious task and will require a lot of work, research and energy. However, we believe that we can do it. We got what it takes - a strong team, advanced technology and great support. Last but not least, we are solving a real challenge - how to combat the spread of misinformation. Your contribution will be an important part of the solution.
