How do videos work?
After you complete a driving session, our system automatically generates 20-second videos of any driving incidents and bookmarks your instructor logged in the app. They can then share videos with you directly.
Will my instructor see if I have watched the videos?
We aim to make driving training as efficient as possible.That's why your instructors can see whether you've watched it or not in order to dicsuss situations and to be better prepared for the next lesson.

What does Yaak actually do?
Yaak is developing a driver coaching platform (SafetyAI) that puts safety first. Working with our driving school clients around the world, we are encoding into SafetyAI their decades of experience in evaluating, recognizing, explaining, and correcting human driving behavior. We don't actually do anything with yaks.
Why are you interested in human drivers instead of AVs?
The year 2007 heralded new possibilities in self-driving. The excitement wasn't unfounded of course. We had solved driving in rugged terrain of the Mojave Desert — with no internet connection and without supervision — Urban self-driving seemed like a few years away. A decade, a deep learning revolution, and many $B later we are still waiting for it, if/when it's unaffordable. At Yaak we asked ourself how to go about building AI that is provably safe and generalize to unseen data/environments? How can we bake explainability from ground-up into it? Instead of building a classic AV stack, why not build a safety-first driving platform that can score, detect, explain and correct human driving with high precision before its allowed on public roads. SafetyAI — our flagship product built for and with driving schools, aims to solve this. With SafetyAI we codify decades of driving instructor's experience in scoring, detecting, explaining and correcting human driving. We are looking to expand our AI team to tackle one of the biggest challenges in Computer Vision and Machine Learning, with freedom to throw away old ideas and build SafetyAI — jointly with driving instructors at our partner driving schools.
Do I have to come to Berlin for that?
Not every position is equally suited to remote. That's why we offer a hybrid work model. Some of us work from Brazil, France, Poland and other countries. And for others it is absolutely necessary to work from Berlin. Check out our open positions and you'll know more :)
What about diversity at your company?

Do you have a heart for career changers as well?
Absolutely. Bringing a good deal of professional experience, openness, curiosity and independence is all that matters to us. We'll take care of the rest.
