Tessian, formerly CheckRecipient, was founded in 2013 to solve the problem of highly sensitive emails being sent to the wrong people.
Tessian is on a mission to transform the way enterprises secure their communication channels. We build advanced machine intelligence to help organisations protect their communications and filter out threats without them having to define what a threat looks like.
The backend systems power the whole company and our teams have touch points with all of our engineering teams. From deploying data science models in production to integrating with our front end, you'll be involved in projects that span all aspects of the business.
