Employee Type - Full-Time EmployeeExperience - Not SpecifiedIndustries - Information Technology


Our CEO & Founder Ron Glozman was only trying to use his machine learning skillset to cut class and still get top grades. He was fed up with reading textbooks cover to cover and knew there had to be a better approach to studying (so he could maximize his time doing karaoke!). It was then he decided to use his machine learning skills to develop a text summarization and redaction app that would teach computers how to read. And although Ron didn’t know it at the time, his app laid the foundation for what is now Chisel AI, an innovator in machine learning solutions for the insurance industry.

Since then, Chisel AI has evolved to be the machine learning leader in the insurance space with software that reads insurance forms in milliseconds and extracts key policy information for some of the world’s largest companies. At Chisel AI, we make it possible for our customers to process data 400 times faster than before; allowing them to focus on nuanced and interesting work that drives real value for their customers.

The opportunity

This is your first step into the world of AI. As part of our Data Extraction team, you will be a fundamental part of building our AI capabilities as you will develop and iterate on algorithms that read and extract insurance terms from digital native documents. In this role, you will be constantly challenged to incorporate new variables into data extraction algorithms and will work closely with your peers to establish the best way to do this.

Our tech stack

  • Python
  • Flask
  • Docker
  • AWS (ECS, Dynamo, Cognito)
  • JavaScript / React with Material-UI

Our new Software Developer will:

  • Build. You will maintain and improve the core details of our data extraction algorithms. You will constantly look for ways to iterate on our technology; focusing on increasing accuracy and automation capabilities. 
  • Learn. You will apply deep computer science concepts daily and will work closely with our Machine Learning team and your Technical Team Lead to better understand our AI capabilities.
  • Collaborate. You will work closely with our Research and Engineering teams to better understand and integrate our AI capabilities with our data extraction capabilities. You will assess challenges at a systems-level; exploring and executing on the best approach as a team. You will share insights, provide guidance, and act as a mentor to your team. 

Our new Software Developer has:

  • The education. You have a bachelor’s degree in computer science, software engineering, or a related field.
  • The experience. You have 2 to 4 years of experience developing software with Python, or another object-oriented language, and have worked on complex algorithms in the past.
  • The technical expertise. You think at a systems-level and are familiar to well-versed in service-oriented architecture, message bus, AWS, Docker, and containerization frameworks.
  • The analytical mindset. You’re an avid problem solver who constantly identifies areas for improvement and continuously iterates. You think algorithmically and see how the work of the Data Extraction team fits into our big-picture vision.
  • The flexibility. You are quick to adapt when priorities shift and take feedback well. You are comfortable with ambiguity and are willing to figure things out when there’s no clear, defined path or process outlined. 

So what do you need to know about Chisel AI? 

We are technology enthusiasts and experts pushing the limits on how AI will shape the future of insurance. Having successfully raised one of the largest seed rounds in Canadian history and with partners like Venrock, a leading Silicon Valley venture firm, by our side very little stands in the way of our success. 

We’ve been recognized by several of the top accelerators in Canada including Creative Destruction Labs and the DMZ and were crowned the winner of the ACORD Global InsurTech Innovation Challenge in 2018. All of which just marked the start of our momentum as in 2019, we won gold at the Zurich Innovation World Championship and made the CIX Top 20 Early Companies list celebrating the most innovative technology companies in Canada. 

Why join Chisel AI?

We’re a company with heavy traction, big clients, and a plan to expand rapidly. We’ve assembled a strong and diverse leadership team and are poised to scale and develop talented people of all levels. This is a place where failures turn into opportunities, where we learn from each other and where everyone’s voice is heard. We’re at a unique and rare stage of growth that will give our team and those who join us a chance to put their mark on everything we build.
