Borg's mission is to enable people to trust each other at scale. We believe that trust is essential for a prosperous society. Unfortunately, the world today is not filled with trust. The state of social media has a lot to do with that. Our goal is to change that by indexing the social graph of humanity and making it available to anyone to build on.
In order to do that we have created a community search algorithm that can reliably map groups from a single word input (e.g. bitcoin, cybersecurity or vegan). You think of it as a "PageRank for people", i.e. an algorithm that ranks social media profiles like Google ranked websites. Our product will enable you to view the internet from the perspective of a community of your choice. This way you will be able to see which people and content they trust. Hive.one is a demo of what we are building.
Our organization is built around the principles of critical thinking. We take the following as our motto:
"For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for nature cannot be fooled." - Richard Feynman

We are a remote-first team.
Most of the team is based in Europe (Berlin, London, Milan). We try to meet in person and work together for several days every ~3 months. Other than that the company ‘lives’ in Slack, Notion, Linear, Vowel and other tools enabling effective communication.
If you work from Berlin, you can work from our Berlin office, located in Mitte.
