Seeking Defenders

At Torch.AI (Torch Research, LLC), we’re passionate about building software that solves some of the world’s most challenging problems. On the leading edge of applied technology, we partner with some of the most important National Security, Intelligence, and commercial enterprises to transform how they solve critical problems and achieve “Trust at Scale.”

Our machine learning software has been used to enhance our Nation’s security by protecting critical military assets, stopping fraud on a massive scale, discovering new trends, gaining an edge in financial markets, and beyond. If answering these types of challenges excites you, we'd love for you to join.

The Role
