      At Writefull, we use AI to help people write academic texts. We have a stand-alone writing editor for researchers, and also offer our feedback services to clients like publishers and educational institutions. Most of the feedback that Writefull gives is based on Deep Learning models.

      We are looking for the best of the best frontends. If you are interested in building tools used by researchers worldwide, email us at [email protected], and please include a link to your GitHub account or portfolio.

      NOTE: we will ignore e-mails by agencies.

      About Writefull

      At Writefull, we use the latest NLP techniques to help people with their academic writing. We target researchers, publishers, and institutions - and develop writing tools for each of their needs.

      We launched the first version of our product in 2014. In 2018, we got investment from Digital Science, a big player in research-focused startups, and we've been one of their portfolio companies ever since. 

      Over the last few years, we've advanced our main product to an editor that uses AI to give automatic feedback on texts. We're an absolute frontrunner in how we use the latest NLP techniques to give feedback on academic writing. 

      We recently started developing tools besides the editor, so that users can get our language feedback in different ways. We're integrating Writefull into existing tools, as well as developing platforms for specific customers.

      For these challenges, we're looking for developers to join our team! 

      Working with us means diving into the areas of science, language, and AI. It also means being part of a passionate and highly skilled team, giving you the opportunity to learn and grow.

    • 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

      [IMPORTANT NOTE]: Salary ranges are for New York based employees. Compensation for remote roles will be adjusted according to the cost of living and market in the specific geography.
