A bit about us:

Today a new battlefield exists where new conflicts arise hourly. No matter what your business is, you ignore narratives at your own peril. Good data from narrative intelligence gives people and organizations the tactical edge to make informed real-time decisions that matter.

Almost a decade ago, we recognized that the world was becoming more "social", yet very few products addressed the power of listening to, understanding, communicating, and analyzing the narratives that were happening online. Organizations had to rely on sentiment analysis. The problem with most sentiment analysis platforms is that the intelligence is either stale or biased.

Analyze narratives from a high level down to core components like keywords and hashtags. With this narrative intelligence we empower organizations from federal and local government entities to financial analysts and VCs to media and PR agencies with the foresight they need to identify their strengths, mitigate risk, and make confident decisions.

Why join us?

Competitive base pay plus bonus
Full remote options
Flexible work schedule
401(k) with company match
Generous Paid Holidays / Vacation
Life Insurance/Disability
