I’m Jerry Ye (@jerryye), a founding partner and lead data scientist at Signalfire, a new venture firm built from the ground up around data. My background is in large-scale machine learning and I have worked on machine learned ranking in search, news recommendation, and adtech systems. Currently, I’m applying machine learning to large unstructured datasets to find signal in the startup ecosystem. I’m also learning the ropes of investing in seed and growth stage.
Aside from my job, I love finding the best deals and have been working on a fun side project with a couple of friends called Coinfetch. Coinfetch is a free service that helps users get money back on existing purchases if the price drops below what they paid.
