    About Jerry.ai

    Jerry.ai is building the first financial platform for your car that helps people optimize the cost and experience of owning a car (making ownership easy & affordable). There are 240M cars in the US alone. For most people, cars are one of the most expensive assets they own and families on average spend 20% of their income on car expenses, making this a massive market.

    We have started with helping people optimize the cost of car insurance and our vision is to help people in every aspect of car ownership. Since our product launch, we have been growing really fast for the past 18 months and our users love the product (rating 4.5 in the app store). Jerry.ai is founded by serial entrepreneurs who previously built and scaled YourMechanic ("Uber for car repair," the nation's largest on-demand car repair company). We have raised over $50M+ in financing.

    About The Role

    We are looking for a Technical Lead who loves tackling convoluted problems and coming up with clean, stable solutions that scale.

      • Create a smart prediction engine for customer's insurance coverage needs
      • Build predictive models on customer purchase behavior based on a large data set
      • Use telematics tracking to build customer driving risk profile

        Responsibilities
        • Participate in the design and development of projects, either independently or in a team.
        • Participate in product decision making, providing feedback and suggestions for improvement.
        • Be self-sufficient and take responsibility of seeing projects through to successful conclusions.
        • Lead design and development of projects, either independently or in a team.
        • Provide mentorship to team members and participate in design decisions.
        • Be the gatekeeper of the codebase and ensure that it stays stable, readable, and free of technical debt.

          Requirements
          • 5+ years of full-time software development experience.
          • B.S. degree in Computer Science or related discipline.
          • Strong software development fundamentals (data structures, algorithms, etc.).
