When we first conceived of Federato, we started by asking ourselves a simple question – did we think the best way to capture machine learning’s potential was by building ad-optimization or back office automation software? The answer was no.

We’ve set out to build software that works to address the generation defining issue of economic inequality in the face of climate change. The insurance industry is currently confronted with a $150B+ coverage gap as the increasing frequency and severity of climate events has found an industry unprepared for necessary change.

By rethinking the first principles of state of the art predictive and optimization mechanisms, we’re working to help the insurance industry adapt to these problems. The team is looking for talented, driven, and, above all, caring individuals to join us in that journey.

About the Jobs

Federato technologies is a venture-backed startup based in Menlo Park, CA looking to secure
machine learning, data, full-stack, and front-end engineering interns for Summer 2022. These roles will report directly to the CTO and team-members will be fully enabled to design, engineer, and productionize mission-critical functionality. All positions may be completed remotely and have the potential to convert into full-time offers in September 2022.
