Front-End Software Developer

riskthinking.AI is a visionary risk management company. Led by Dr. Ron Dembo, former founder and CEO of Algorithmics Inc., it produces the only financial risk ratings that truly account for the full uncertainty of climate stress. Unlike climate risk companies that attempt to predict the future, riskthinking.AI uses sophisticated probability models, augmented by AI and structured expert judgment, in a completely ‘bottom-up’ approach to create future estimates of the financial impact of climate change. Their approach can be used to measure and manage financial risks across any asset type, class, or sector, anywhere in the world, and across any future time horizon.
