Senior Software Engineer


We are a funded, early-stage start-up with high ambitions and a social mission at its core. At ETIQ we are developing a software solution to help identify and mitigate algorithmic bias. Whether it's in policing and sentencing, recruitment or financial products, people's lives are impacted by automated decisions on a daily basis. The algorithms that drive these automated decisions are often biased against certain demographic groups. At ETIQ, we want to help prevent and mitigate these biases so that technologies like ML and AI can help promote equal opportunity and not amplify inequality.

So far we have focused on our core technology and we are now building our full product offering and scaling our capacity. We are looking to fill our development team with proactive engineers that love to work across multiple technologies and whose impact will be visible from day one.
