The role and impact you'll have:

We have 150.000 (and growing) happy customers using our app and services. We’re looking for a Senior Backend Developer to join our growing engineering team to work on cutting edge infrastructure and APIs that need to be highly performant and deal with the complex domain of insurance problems.

You will work in a cross functional team together with product and data to conceptualize and develop new features for our product and platform. Work smarter, not harder. Build solutions that enable us to move faster as we scale and not build 1-offs. Iterate quickly towards the best solutions for our customers and business.

  • Ruby on Rails (if you don’t already work with it, you can learn it on the job)
  • PostgreSQL, Kafka, Sidekiq, Redis
  • Heroku and AWS
  • Open sourced Ruby gems as part of regular work

That’s you:

4+ years experience in backend development working on complex systems Experience writing robust, scalable, maintainable HTTP and RESTful APIs.
