Job Description

About Level

Level is a digital-first insurance platform for businesses and their employees. We’re a growing startup based in NYC. 

How we work
We love working with engineers who delight in writing constructive comments as much as writing elegant code, who thoughtfully define API specifications, and who articulate the rationale behind their engineering decisions. 
 
As a company, we pride ourself on collaboration. We believe you bring a valuable, thoughtful perspective to the conversation. We look to your experience and insights to help elevate the quality of our work and our impact when solving problems for customers.
 
If it interests you, there are also opportunities to wear hats outside of engineering — for example, anything from product development to business strategy.

Your role
  • Create a system to quickly, securely, and automatically make payments to providers and members of the Level plan
  • Design well thought-out APIs that allow members to search for dentists near them with a variety of filters
  • Architect an extensible data model that includes members, dental providers, and other data sources
  • Help launch the company’s first product

You have
  • 4+ years of software engineering experience and/or a CS degree
  • Expertise with one server-side language (Go, Java, Python, etc.)

Our community
In order to successfully build products that work for everyone, we need to grow a team that reflects the diverse backgrounds and experiences of our customers. We value people who enjoy teaching and learning with others, collaborate across disciplines, and are curious about topics outside of work.
 
Once you join, we will ensure you develop personally and professionally. You will be included in making decisions, and we will value your viewpoint. 

Our technologies
These are some of the technologies we use today, but they aren’t a requirement. Many successful members of our team learned them with us. During our interview process, you are free to use any language you’re most comfortable with.
  • Go
  • Kubernetes
  • Protobuf / gRPC
  • AWS
  • MySQL
  • ElasticSearch
  • React / React Native
  • Typescript

Our benefits
  • Competitive salary and generous equity
  • Employer paid health, dental, vision insurance
  • Unlimited PTO
  • Maternity / paternity leave
  • Weekly team lunches
  • Dog-friendly office located near Union Square
