  • Full-time

Company Description

Insurance is one of the last trillion-dollar industries that has remained largely untouched by technology. Zesty.ai is changing that. At zesty.ai we leverage Artificial Intelligence to change the way the global property insurance industry has been assessing risk for decades.

We use the latest advancements in computer vision and deep learning on 115+Bn data points on residential and commercial structures to extract key building features (e.g., roof geometry and material, distance to inflammable vegetation and more) to accurately model the potential impact of both non-catastrophic and catastrophic loss events, such as hurricanes, floods, wildfires and earthquakes.

Leading insurance carriers and reinsurers have partnered with zesty.ai to underwrite risk more accurately, provide customers a smoother purchasing experience and manage inspections more cost-effectively. Zesty.ai was voted the Most Innovative Insurtech Startup by the global insurance community at the Plug & Play 2018 Summer Expo.

Zesty.ai is a well funded start-up located in Jack London Square in Oakland, CA. Join us for the greatest thrill of your life! Learn more at: zesty.ai
