Mid-Level Software Engineer
Ally is an industry-leading suite of software products that enables organisations with an online community to both analyse and understand their community while safeguarding their users against negative behaviour, such as grooming, racism, homophobia and bullying. As existing solutions rely heavily upon proactive abuse reporting or keyword redaction, which are insufficient approaches, Ally utilises sophisticated AI technologies such as language and behavioural analysis. This analysis provides the unique power to automate the interception of abuse, all the time, in near real-time. Our clients include some of the games industry’s biggest names and across all of our clients we process billions of messages a month. As Ally grows, we aim to expand our market reach beyond the games industry.
Psychological safety is a core principle for how we operate as a team. We encourage every member of the team to speak up and contribute ideas when there are ways to improve what we are building and how we work together. As a team who works at least 80% remotely (even before the lockdown began), we feel this is critical to our collaboration. We encourage personal and professional development both individually and as a team. This is through formal or informal knowledge sharing as well as team tutorial sessions.
You will be part of a friendly, respectful and close-knit team working on some of the most important challenges we face when trying to ensure online communication is safe and inclusive for everyone. You will be working across the stack, improving existing functionality, and developing new areas of the application as the product grows and adapts to client requirements. You should be an effective communicator and be able to work as part of a diverse company. The right candidate will be looking to gain enough experience with us to expand the role to a senior level within 12-24 months.
