Bring everything to light
Chenope is pioneering analytics technology for predicting outcomes related to any kind of organization. Our technology has been proven in complex mission-critical organizational data analysis scenarios with organizations as diverse as Fortune 1000 companies and violent street gangs.

Although the specific objectives of organizations vary considerably with the type of organization, the organizational imperatives are relatively constant. Successful organizations need to both grow and keep their current members engaged. They need their customers to admire them - and their competition to fear them. They all have a command and control structure and at least minimal processes. Most require a profit. These and other similarities allow the same analytics techniques to be used to analyze and make predictions about any type of organization.

Chenope was founded by the same people as Cataphora, whose innovative solutions enjoyed an international reputation.

Chenope's organizational analytics technology is currently focused on the following markets:

Intelligence and Law Enforcement

Chenope offers a multi-evidence technology approach for detecting both anomalous behavior and changes in behavior occurring within an organizational context. Originally developed for use in CI / Insider Threat investigations, our proven and patented technology combines Social Network Analysis (SNA), Text Analytics, and now Image Analysis. We also have a powerful query language and streaming-oriented search engine to help ensure a high signal-to-noise ratio in any items flagged for human review and / or that flow into predictive models.

Chenope has been building technology in the emerging, highly tradecraft-dependent field of technical targeting for CT with active partnerships with European CVE entities such as CPDSI in France and HAYAT-Deutschland in Germany. For more information, send email to:

Human Capital Management with aon_logo_white_small

In partnership with global HCM market leader Aon, Chenope has developed Aon Vox™ to realistically assess company cultures, and to better understand employee engagement at different stages of the employee lifecycle.. Aon Vox is designed to help companies analyze qualitative employee feedback from various types of employee-related surveys as well as other corporate data and the Web. Backed by Aon's world-class expertise and leveraging Chenope's patented technology, Aon Vox helps companies to recognize specific drivers behind employee delight - and disenchantment - and to identify similarities in beliefs among both highly energized employees and increasingly disconnected ones.

Aon Vox extracts constructive suggestions from employee content, and constructs benchmarks of culture and employee experience across companies in different industry sectors and regions based on publicly available online data.

Other HCM use cases include cultural due diligence, assessment of culture change initiatives, and internal investigation. For more information, contact your local Aon representative or send mail to

Portfolio Opportunity & Risk Identification

When is the market misreading what's really going on in a company? Whether the objective is to help read the tea leaves leading up to quarterly earnings announcements, or to track the internal health of a company over time for a long term position, the same technology currently used in HCM and law enforcement can be brought to bear in order to acquire a true insider's view of a target company.

Are you fed up with the usual little-to-no real revenue, little-to-no deep technology startup scene? If you want to be part of building a substantive company, work on software that really changes outcomes. and learn "real world" business skills, we could be exactly the right place for you.

Chenope offers a unique opportunity to work on cutting-edge analytics technology whose applications include everything from financial services to certain types of counter-terrorism applications.

We are doing business the old-fashioned way - by hiring great people, building products that solve real world problems, being fiscally responsible, and measuring success through sustainable revenue.

We only care about what you can demonstrably do. We couldn't care less about how pretty you look (or don't look) on paper. While we prefer candidates who are in one of our existing global locations, for the really right candidate, we are prepared to be flexible about location or relocate. However, you must have the right to work in the US, UK, EU, or Singapore. Unfortunately we can make no exceptions.

We are currently looking principally for the below positions. However, we also have some other positions available, so feel free to send us your resume if you have interests and experience in anything related to data analytics,

Senior Visualization / UI Engineer: Must have substantial skills and experience in both defining and implementing large-scale data visualizations in the context of reasonably complex web applications.

Senior Algorithms Engineer: Must have strong background in IR, NLP, or a similar discipline, or a strong math and algorithms background. You must be able to implement the tools as well as develop the underlying algorithms for this work, including the construction and manipulation of large graphs and hypergraphs. We strongly prefer someone with a history of having worked on high-value IR, SNA, or data mining problems and who has the proven capability to do original work.

Senior Research Linguist: Must have good working knowledge of current CL techniques, especially those involving cross-language techniques. Ideally, you can code well, but it is not a must. Likewise, we would prefer someone who is fluent in at least 2 other languages, ideally one of which would be Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, or Arabic.

Candidates with prior military or IC experience are very welcome for all positions.
