Job description
We saw a problem within the life insurance industry: getting covered took too long, involved too much paperwork, and required too many in-person meetings with salesy agents. Having lost his father at a young age, our CEO, Jamie, was determined to make it easier for people to get the coverage they needed to provide for their families. So, we got to work. We developed a method of real-time underwriting and, in doing so, reduced the months-long process of applying for life insurance to minutes. Our digital experience is quick (instant decisions!), loved by users (check out our Trustpilot or Google reviews) and prolific ($34 billion+ in coverage provided).
About the role

We're looking for engineers who are excited to help us reimagine what life insurance can be. The ideal candidate brings demonstrated experience in software engineering, leadership maturity and a deep understanding of the software development life cycle.

As a Software Engineer, you will be responsible for solving a variety of technical challenges and driving the development of software that will democratize the Life Insurance industry. Some of your daily expectations in the role include:

Handling end-to-end development, including coding, testing, debugging, and deployment during each cycle
Developing end-to-end code solutions.

About you:

Bachelor’s degree or equivalent practical experience.
3 years of experience with software development in one or more programming languages, and with data structures/algorithms.
1 years of experience testing, maintaining, and/or launching software products, and 1 year of experience with software design and architecture.
3 years of experience Full-stack development with some exposure to front-end frameworks.
2 years of experience in a health-related industry and/or highly regulated environment such as finance, insurance, healthcare or pharmaceuticals.

Our engineering culture & values

Bottom-up leadership: teams are most successful when everybody shares their ideas, comfortable that they'll be seriously considered. engineers can and should provide product & business insights.
Ship fast without breaking things: we've invested heavily in engineering tooling that provides guardrails without getting in your way. We believe in shipping MVPs & iterating quickly rather than waiting for perfection to ship.
Invest in automation: automating repetitive tasks saves time and reduces errors. We're always on the lookout for manual workflows to automate away.
Continuous improvement: we learn from our past wins & losses by conducting blameless retros.

Technologies

While it's great if you're already familiar with some of these, we strongly believe that general technical proficiency is more important than knowledge of specific technologies. If the role sounds interesting, please apply even if you don't know any of these technologies!
