  • Kalepa is looking for Data Scientists to lead efforts at the intersection of machine learning and big data engineering in order to solve some of the biggest problems in commercial insurance.

    Data scientists at Kalepa will be turning vast amounts of structured and unstructured data from many sources (web data, geolocation, satellite imaging, etc.) into novel insights about behavior and risk. You will be working closely with a small team in designing, building, and deploying machine learning models to tackle our customers’ questions.

    Kalepa is a New York based, VC backed, startup building software to transform and disrupt commercial insurance. Nearly one trillion ($1T) dollars are spent globally each year on commercial insurance across small, medium, and large enterprises. However, the process for estimating the risk associated with a given business across various perils (e.g. fire, injury, malpractice) is still reliant on inefficient and inaccurate manual forms or outdated and sparse databases. This information asymmetry leads to a broken set of economic 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 – empowering every commercial insurance underwriter to be as effective and efficient as possible. 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.

    About you: 

    You want to design a flexible analytics, data science, and AI framework to transform the insurance industry 

    You have demonstrated success in delivering analytical projects, including structuring and conducting analyses to generate business insights and recommendations 

    You have in-depth understanding of applied machine learning algorithms and statistics 

    You are experienced in Python and its major data science libraries, and have deployed models and algorithms in production 

    You have a good understanding of SQL and non-SQL databases 

    You value open, frank, and respectful communication 

    You are a proactive and collaborative problem solver with a “can do” attitude 

    You have a sincere interest in working at a startup and scaling with the company as we grow

    As a plus: 

    • You have experience in NLP and/or computer vision 

    • You have familiarity with Spark, Hadoop, or Scala 

    • You have experience working with AWS tools

    What you’ll get 

    Work with an ambitious, smart, and fun team to transform a $1T global industry 

    Ground floor opportunity – opportunity to build the foundations for the product, team, and culture alongside the founding team 

    Wide-ranging intellectual challenges working with large and diverse data sets, as well as with a modern technology stack 

    Competitive compensation package with a significant equity component 

    Full benefits package, including excellent medical, dental, and vision insurance 

    Unlimited vacation and flexible remote work policies 

    Continuing education credits and a healthy living / gym monthly stipend

    Qntfy is looking for an experienced and motivated data scientist to join our research and development team. Qntfy is a small (but growing) company offering a diverse array of products and services. As a result, data scientists at Qntfy tend to wear a greater number of hats than they might at larger organizations. This can range from occasionally interfacing directly with customers in a consultative role to preparing papers and presentations for academic journals or conferences (see here to get a sense of our recent work).

    We recognize that “data science” is a broad term, and that highly qualified data scientists come from a wide variety of backgrounds and career trajectories. As such, we do not have a rigid checklist of qualifications, but we do expect successful candidates to be able to demonstrate extensive experience with most of the qualifications below. Similarly, we do not have strict educational requirements for data scientists, but of course advanced degrees in quantitative disciplines (broadly construed) are viewed favorably. Our current team of data scientists have backgrounds in bioengineering, cognitive science, psychology, neuroscience, political science, and chemistry.

    Responsibilites

    • Prototype machine learning models of natural language and human behavioral data.

    • Conduct bespoke analyses using inferential statistics for internal and external clients.

    • Work directly with Qntfy engineers to add data science features to our products.

    • Communicate with peers, customers, and partners to foster cooperation and development.

    • Effectively estimate time to implement designs.

    Qualifications

    • Common machine learning algorithms and/or advanced inferential statistical techniques.

    • Standard Python data science tools (e.g., Pandas, scikit-learn; some of us have a soft spot for R and use it occasionally, but we expect data scientists to largely adhere to a Python-based ecosystem).

    • Common flavors of SQL and SQL databases.

    • Linux operating systems.

    • Analysis of natural language data.

    • Experience with dialogue systems, reinforcement learning, information extraction, and/or information retrieval.

    • Basic project management tools and processes.

    • Communicating the results of quantitative work, orally and in writing, to technical and non-technical audiences.

    Preferred Qualifications

    • Experience with deep learning frameworks.

    • Experience with technologies from the following list: Kafka, Docker, PostgreSQL, Kubernetes, Go.

    • Knowledge of, or experience with, behavioral science, data science automation, and/or working in an R&D setting.

    Qntfy is committed to fostering and supporting a creative and diverse environment. Qntfy is an equal opportunity employer, and as such will consider all qualified applicants for employment without regard to race, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics, disability, age, or veteran status.
