Emily Chao is a software engineer at Recidiviz. Previously, they were on the Health engineering team at Twitter, working on machine learning pipelines and infrastructure to deploy signals designed to detect, prevent and remediate harassment, inauthentic behavior, and the spread of harmful or misleading content on the platform. Most recently, they contributed to efforts to help protect the integrity of the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election. When they're not deep in thought about tech policy or asking existential questions about the future of online discourse, Emily enjoys exploring coffee shops, photographing weird happenings around Oakland/San Francisco and dabbling in a little bit of poetry.
A diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace is essential to our mission. People come to Recidiviz to contribute to an urgent cause, and to work alongside incredible coworkers who care as much as they do. To ensure that we’re building intentional products and amplifying the work of others in the reform ecosystem, we are committed to fostering a diverse team that reflects the people we serve.
We combine the efficiency of a tech company with the heart of a non-profit. Recidiviz began as a volunteer project at Google and has since grown into one of the brightest, kindest teams that civic tech has to offer. Our north star: safely and fairly shrinking the criminal justice system.
