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.
The role and impact you'll have:
- 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.

- Take ownership and be a leader in the team of best practices and push our technology forward along with supporting more junior members of the team.

- PostgreSQL, Kafka, Sidekiq, Redis
- Heroku and AWS
- Open sourced Ruby gems as part of regular work
- 4+ years experience in backend development working on complex systems
- Experience writing robust, scalable, maintainable HTTP and RESTful APIs. Previous experience with Ruby is a plus, but not a must

- You have the ability to distil a complex problem into its essential elements, and clearly communicate your vision to the team
You can look forward to:
