Note From Sid - CEO & Co-Founder

Yembo started as a crazy idea by 2 AI engineers. But every pioneering innovation starts with a question. The question my co-founder and I had was, "Why do moving companies have to visit someone's home when almost everyone has a smartphone in their pocket?" It's time consuming, inefficient, and expensive to visit someone's home, just to give them an estimate. My co-founder Zach knew this because his wife used to be a moving company coordinator.

There had to be a better way. And of course there was. AI-powered virtual home surveys would be faster, better, and more convenient. For the moving company and their customers. And so the 2 of us started on this adventure called Yembo. From our humble beginnings in the moving industry, to bringing our best-in-class AI product to the insurance industry - we're just getting started on our mission to drive digital transformation to home service companies.

About You

Yembo doubled in size in 2021 and is on pace to double in size again in 2022, so we're seeking Sales Development Representatives (SDRs) to help fuel our growth to $100M ARR. If you're interested in joining a venture-backed startup using Computer Vision and AI to disrupt an outdated industry and want to accelerate your career, then read on...this might be a good opportunity for you!

Support Engineer

What are some things you learned at the company?

I used to believe that the moving industry consisted solely of transporting boxes from point A to point B. I discovered that the moving industry is far more complicated than it appears. Working on complex problems and utilizing AI to solve them is very exciting here at Yembo and I love it!
