Our mission is to enable people to trust each other at scale.
Social media has changed our society in a deeper way than most people realize. For most of our history, we formed communities around shared locations, but this has been changing rapidly with technologies such as the internet and – especially – social media. Today we are forming communities around shared ideas more than ever.
This is a structural change, so it affects every aspect of society. Including our model of trust. Who we trust has always been determined by communities, but online communities are larger and they create more information. Our brains are not able to handle this scale. This is why the world suddenly feels like it is getting torn apart.
We need to find a new model of trust. It is not only about fixing what is broken. It is also an opportunity to create a more innovative society with faster scientific progress and equal access to opportunity.
We intend to do that by indexing the social graph of humanity and making it available to build on to anyone. We started by indexing Twitter, but soon will also index podcasts, research papers, other social media platforms (e.g. Reddit, Github) etc., and combine them together.
This is possible because we invented a community search algorithm that can accurately map communities from a single word input, such as 'bitcoin', 'vegan' or 'tennis'. This approach works on existing social graphs.
Our organization is built around the principles of critical thinking. We take the following as our motto:
"For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for nature cannot be fooled." - Richard Feynman

We are a remote-first team.
Most of the team is based in Europe. We try to meet in person and work together for several days every ~4 months. Other than that the company ‘lives’ in Slack, Notion, Linear, Vowel and other tools enabling effective communication.
If you work from Berlin, you can work from our Berlin office, located in Mitte.
