The Giant Oak team comprises a small group of individuals who are innovative, intellectually curious, and passionate about using our knowledge to make the world a better, safer place. The members of our organization have expertise in data analysis, economic theory, national security, and computer programming, and we have a shared passion for advancing the frontier of conventional knowledge in our chosen fields. We are looking for candidates who are independently driven and comfortable functioning outside of the norm, willing to build onto their foundation of rigorous quantitative and analytical skills by using creative techniques and insights to formulate the next generation of resistance and counterattacks to a variety of security issues.

Our Vision

We make the world a safer place by applying behavioral and computer science in big data environments to identify illicit behaviors, actors, and networks.

Our Mission

We build software to help our customers effectively and efficiently reduce crime, fraud, coercion, and violence.

Core Values

These values exemplify our culture. They enable constructive and meaningful interaction between our people and with our customers.

Be nice. We build empathy and listen earnestly to the needs of colleagues, customers, the market, and partners. We nurture an environment that encourages diversity, representation, and inclusion of people, perspectives, and approaches. We respect individuals’ privacy and security.

Be smart. We remain motivated to learn and innovate. We transform the latest scientific advances into deployable tools that meet our customers’ needs and anticipate future possibilities. We articulate the need for transformation while staying receptive and responsive to change.

Be bold. We look for and apply cutting-edge concepts. We act to support our customers with urgency. We take courageous and calculated risks to advance our mission, and stay motivated in the event of failure.

Be scientific. We insist on close interaction with clients to understand their data and the data generating process before delivering results. We embrace internal peer review and make careful claims supported by a rigorous scientific approach. We never compromise our integrity or exaggerate to validate a claim or make a sale.


      "I was Giant Oak employee #1 in 2010. I signed on because I liked the intellectual challenge of the problems we were solving, combined with the mission of making the world a safer place. I continue to work at Giant Oak because I love being surrounded by people that are smart and nice who care about applying cutting-edge scientific research to hard security problems. Sometimes the work is independent, sometimes it’s collaborative. In any case, we are team, with a shared mission and shared values." – Harsh Pandya, Giant Oak Social Scientist
