About us

Kaiasm is on a mission to benefit society by empowering business to meet more of its needs.

We are founded by three entrepreneurs who have always worked to improve the outcomes for both the organisations that have employed them, and for the individuals within those organisations who are seeking new ways of working. One leads to the other, and if working with us isn’t interesting, challenging and positive, then you shouldn’t be.

Our business is supported by three brilliant teams: our analysts who guide our AI toolset to create the building blocks of our insight; our product team whose engineers and scientists create our Platform and our Customer Interface; and our customer team for whom the delivery of your potential is their day-to-day purpose.

We're friendly. Contact Us

  • Liam McGee

    Liam McGee, Chief Scientist

    Liam is an impassioned inventor and philosopher. Profoundly logical and deeply knowledgeable. If it doesn’t do good, don’t do it, and if a better mousetrap is conceptually possible, he’ll find a way to build it. At his best solving problems that no-one has solved yet, and at his worst when failing to meet his own impossibly high standards.
