Senior Software Engineer

TwoHat

This is a Full-time position in Calgary, AB posted August 14, 2019.

We believe that purposeful content moderation can bring connections back to online communities.

By enabling users to share without fear of abuse or harassment, we believe we can restore the original purpose of the internet
– to connect.

Two Hat is a leading provider of chat, comment, image, and video filtering with an emphasis on detecting online harms like cyberbullying, abuse, hate speech, violent threats, suicide, and child exploitation.

Processing nearly 30 billion messages a month, Two Hat enables clients across a variety of social networks to deliver positive user experiences by detecting and filtering harmful content in real time, before it reaches the community.

More than just a filter, we provide an all-in-one content moderation solution, with data analysis, content escalations, flexible workflows, auto-moderated user reports, and more.

Clients benefit from our scalable, autonomous, and transparent solution, as well as our team of industry experts who consult on best practices and industry standards.

In addition, we believe that removing illegal content is a shared responsibility among social platforms, technology companies, and law enforcement.

To that end, we work with international law enforcement to train AI to detect new child exploitative material.
