Kalepa | Software Engineers | New York City, NY | ONSITE / PARTIAL REMOTE, VISA
Kalepa is a New York based, VC backed, startup building software to transform and disrupt the $1T commercial insurance market.
Engineers at Kalepa will be solving interesting and challenging problems at the intersection of big data pipelines, cutting-edge machine learning models, intuitive frontend apps, and robust infrastructure. You will be working in a small team building technology from the ground up with the latest stack.
One trillion dollars are spent globally each year on commercial insurance. However, the process for estimating the risk associated with a given business across various perils is still reliant on inefficient and inaccurate forms and research. This information asymmetry leads to a broken set of incentives and a poor experience for both businesses and insurers alike. By combining cutting edge data science, enterprise software, and insurance expertise, Kalepa is delivering precision underwriting at scale. Kalepa is turning real-world data into a complete understanding of risk.
Kalepa is led by a strong team with experiences from Facebook, APT (acquired by Mastercard for $600M in 2015), the Israel Defense Forces, MIT, Berkeley, and UPenn. We are backed by IA Ventures.

Afresh | San Francisco, CA | Full-time | Onsite
Afresh is a Series A startup focused on automating the food supply chain using AI with the ultimate goal of eliminating food waste. In the US, about 40% of all food waste occurs in supermarkets and downstream, largely due to inefficient manual ordering processes. This waste leads to >$80B in economic losses as well as 1.5 billion tons of greenhouse gas emissions, which is comparable to the emissions of Japan.
Afresh is commercializing a technology developed as part of a Stanford research project that automates the pen-and-paper processes used by supermarket operators. This technology cuts retail food waste by >50% and dramatically increases the stores' profit margins.
We are founded by a team of Computer Science PhDs, MBAs, designers, and engineers from Stanford, Berkeley, CMU. We're backed by former Google CEO Eric Schmidt's firm (Innovation Endeavors) and the first investors in Instagram, Stitchfix, SoFi, and Heroku (Steve Anderson of Baseline Ventures).
We're growing fast: we're in a partnership with 4 large regional grocers representing 500+ stores and >$10B in revenue. We're also looking for smart, enthusiastic, dependable people interested in applying cutting-edge technology to problems with significant societal impact.
Our open roles are: * Machine Learning Engineer * Backend Engineer * Site Reliability / DevOps * Mobile Developer * Full-Stack Web Developer Full job descriptions available at: https://jobs.lever.co/afreshtechnologies?
