Active Roles
Why join us?
  • Big Market: Demand for Senior Care (medical & non-medical needs of elderly who can’t care for themselves) is skyrocketing - the first Boomers turn 75 in 2 years. And families spend $200B annually (projected to hit $500B by 2035) on Long Term Care, and have no accountability. Don’t believe us? wapo.st/2r4s4pZ?tid

  • Strong Backing: Gerry is an early seed stage company, created by serial entrepreneurs (that co-founded and scaled businesses in Fintech & Insurtech - Tala and RGAX) and backed by $3.75M of capital from great VCs including Core, Bessemer,  8VC, Kapor. All inspired by our own personal experiences helping loved ones choose suitable nursing homes for loved ones.

  • Our Impact: We're helping hundreds of families by employing our own licensed social workers. They use the Gerry proprietary database (with attributes on over 43,800 senior living communities across the country) to screen, evaluate and personalize recommendations for families.

Engineering team and processes

Our data & engineering team currently works on a one month roadmap that is collaboratively crafted with our product leaders, and informed by data. We are focused on answer three core questions each month, and have a series of tactics, features to build, and a benchmark for success.
We don't have a mandate for short 1-2 week sprints, or long (6 month) back-logs of features that nobody will use.

Technical Challenges

We are using machine learning to fill in gaps within our 43,800 community database, as well as trying to personalize and predict recommendations.

  • Pulling in data to profile and assess in advance a prospects likely engagement method (phone vs email) and basic info (demographics, income, etc.)
