Senior Full Stack Engineer

  • 283 4th St, Oakland, CA 94607, USA
  • Full-time

Company Description

Events in recent years have made us all too familiar with the havoc that natural disasters can wreak, and the increasing frequency and intensity with which they are occurring.

Despite record levels of losses, conventional methods of risk modeling continue to paint at best an incomplete picture of these threats.

Zesty.ai uses novel data gathering and machine learning approaches to produce higher quality information about the risks to property from catastrophes like floods and wildfires.  While AI alone may not be able to thwart these disasters, it can help us become more prepared for them, and ultimately that will lead to better outcomes.

We are looking for a Senior Software Engineer, Full Stack who is comfortable building rich and robust web applications backed by large-scale data. You should have a demonstrated record of tackling increasingly challenging professional projects, and a passion for delivering high quality systems and code. You will be part of the core team driving development of Zesty.ai’s proprietary applications for real estate property analytics.

As our ideal candidate, you thrive in a collaborative, creative environment that moves fast. You are comfortable learning new skills and working with unfamiliar technologies.  You are passionate about designing systems that elegantly solve complex business problems, and you have an opinion about doing things the right way. You are organized, self-directed, and committed to innovation. You are hungry to be on the critical path, to lead the discussion, and to have an impact on the world.

If this sounds like you, we’d love to talk to you.
