One Concern brings disaster science together with machine learning for better decision-making. We quantify resilience from catastrophic perils, empowering leaders to measure, mitigate, and transfer risk so disasters aren’t so disastrous.

At One Concern, we believe an informed world is an inherently fairer one. Because incomplete information leads to false assumptions and poor decisions. That’s how cities are built in the wrong places, businesses are left inoperable after the shocks of natural hazards, and vulnerable people in communities are left paying the price. We believe we can change this. We believe that by pioneering cutting-edge science, we can make disasters less disastrous. And ultimately, realize planetary-scale resilience.

One Concern is growing rapidly and we are looking for passionate, motivated, and ambitious engineers to join our team.

We are looking for senior front end engineers who have developed interactive customer facing products from concept to launch. You will be working on mission critical projects, helping build world class user experiences that are snappy and responsive.
