About us and our values:

EXPOSING THE INVISIBLE (ETI) is a Tactical Tech project that has been actively experimenting with ways to promote investigation as one of the most important forms of public engagement. Through a series of films, interviews, guides and resources like the ETI KIT, our team looks at different techniques, tools and methods along with the individual practices of those working at the new frontiers of investigation.

Tactical Tech has an international team of approximately 30 staff, mostly based in Berlin, but also working remotely. Our backgrounds are in human rights, art, investigation, development, technology, and many more areas.

*We work within a culture of curiosity to use creative and iterative processes to challenge existing narratives about the relationship between technology and society with positive, practical solutions. Our work is based on iterative approaches. We foster a working environment in which we can learn from our successes and mistakes and allow each other to grow. We carry out our work with integrity, in collaboration with partners to ensure that our solutions are practical, accessible, context specific and appropriate. Our team reflects the diversity of our audiences and we respect and support each other and the capabilities that everyone brings to our work towards our collective goals.

As with any position at Tactical Tech we cultivate a culture of inclusion that respects their individual strengths, views, and experiences. Tactical Tech is committed to achieving this through application of its affirmative action, equal opportunity and nondiscrimination policy in all aspects of employment and work. We strongly encourage applications from members of any marginalized communities, and individuals whose identities are underrepresented in this type of engagement.
