Fama is cloud-based software that utilizes a person’s publicly available, online identity to help businesses hire the right people, with a major focus on increasing trust and safety.

A combination of artificial intelligence, machine learning and human-based quality assurance automatically highlights red flags…showing businesses the tweets, photos and posts that offer a revealing perspective into patterns of historical behavior.

Flags may reference bigotry, illegal drugs, discriminatory behavior—or any ‘custom attributes’ a business or institution is interested in surfacing.


At Fama, we are a team of doers. People who take pride and ownership over our role in the success of the company, people who are gung-ho about our product and our team.

We are a creative and fast-paced team. We’re focused on bringing on teammates who are perpetual learners and problem solvers.


  • 5+ years of experience working for venture-backed startups
  • 3+ years experience in developing NLP and ML products
  • Personal or professional java experience
  • Comfortable in a team-based environment
  • Dedicated to craftsmanship and product ownership
  • Able to move at a fast pace
  • Quick to laugh off mistakes and find solutions

We look for engineers with a creative intellect; with end-to-end agency over design, prototyping, pushing and shipping.

We also encourage a “T-shape” in all engineers. Someone who can do a number of things well, but has a very narrow and deep focus on a certain type of development. For this role, that narrow and deep focus is on NLP, pattern matching, and machine learning.
