The Giant Oak team is comprised of a small group of individuals who are innovative, intellectually curious, and passionate about using our knowledge to make the world a better, safer place. The members of our organization have expertise in machine learning, behavioral science, national security, and illicit markets, and we have a shared passion for advancing the frontier of conventional knowledge in our chosen fields. We are looking for candidates who are independently driven and comfortable functioning outside of the norm, willing to build onto their foundation of rigorous quantitative and analytical skills by using creative techniques and insights to formulate the next generation of tools for public safety and security while promoting privacy and inclusion.
We make the world a safer place by applying behavioral and computer science in big data environments to identify illicit behaviors, actors, and networks. We build software to help our customers effectively and efficiently reduce crime, fraud, coercion, and violence.
