“Painting is easy when you don’t know how, but very difficult when you do” – Edgar Degas

At Kentivo, we believe data science is as much about creating a story as it is about the algorithms. Through JavaScript we let users React to the story the data tells them. We give them the interactions to intuitively interact with the insights machine learning provides and subtly provide feedback. Whether it is via augmented reality in the HoloLens, a mobile interaction or integrated multi-dimensional stories on the desktop, the story always needs to evolve and be told.

Kentivo is looking for people to pick up these challenges and join us in our adventure. As a company, we look to maximize our diversity both in terms of culture, skills and expertise as we believe that at the cross-sections innovations happen that are relevant. We are currently looking for people to strengthen our team with a knack for putting an engaging script together.

ps: As most of us are cultural philistines compared to our art director, some solid art criticism is appreciated.

Profile: When you recognize yourself in the following, we would very much like to meet and start a discussion regarding possibilities:

  • Home is where your phone and laptop are
  • You want to take JavaScript off script
  • You hate plagiarism but appreciate a good script
  • You think the color of our logo is really ugly
  • Art is in the execution, not in the blueprint or design
  • The user is way more creative than you in doing unexpected things

Caveats: In the spirit of openness, be aware, Kentivo has its limits

  • We do not understand time (deadlines are always yesterday, and that is optimistic)
  • We are insensitive and rude, so do not expect civility even if you are from Australia
  • We don’t offer predictability
  • You have an idea, you build it
  • We expect you to do today’s work better tomorrow
  • We expect you to be able to cook a steak on the BBQ, enjoy Picanha, Mass (will be part of the evaluation process)
  • Learning Brazilian English will be part of the job benefits
