We are Blackdot
We are Blackdot Solutions — creators of the coolest, most cutting edge investigations software around. Our Videris platform helps tackle serious intelligence challenges like terrorism, money laundering and organised crime. We’re pretty sure you won't find a more interesting product to work on.
Join us in making the world’s most powerful investigations software, helping organisations leverage online information to tackle some of society’s biggest problems.
Blackdot started life as a risk agency. Powered by our early technology and development work, we created Videris: the best-in-class platform that helps government agencies, large corporates and the financial community in their investigations, from tracking down terrorists to identifying money launderers. Our clients rely on our tech every day, and our software means they can collect, analyse and visualise open source intelligence (OSINT) and get instant results.
Sure, it’s serious stuff, but we believe in the power of technology to do great things. Videris doesn't collect data indiscriminately and we won't sell our software to just anyone; we’re here to protect the public, use information responsibly and make sure we can all sleep at night.
We are dedicated
to creating innovative technologies, remaining agile while recognising that we might not get it right the first time.
We care deeply
about our people and always put them first.
We believe in
taking an ethical approach to investigations, ensuring integrity within the company and those that use our products.
We are passionate
about developing solutions to our customers’ challenges and will always value their feedback.
We are committed
to building a safe and sustainable future for all.
Working at Blackdot
If you’re a self-starting, roll-up-your-sleeves type, Blackdot is the place for you. You’ll get to own projects that really matter, but in a collaborative environment with the spirit of a startup. No two days are the same. Monday — tackling terrorism. Tuesday — tackling table tennis. Whilst some of our work is confidential we frequently work with many household names that you will have heard of. We are a team of techies, intelligence professionals and OSINT lovers, but we don't take ourselves too seriously and we always have a laugh.
