About Vouch Insurance

Vouch is a new kind of insurance platform for startups.

Job Description

About Vouch:

Insurance... sounds slow, old-fashioned, and unexciting. Exactly. Insurance is broken, and it's failing fast-moving, innovative startups.

Vouch is a new, technology-first insurance company, backed with $70M in funding from world-class investors. Like Stripe for payments or Brex for credit cards, Vouch is creating the go-to business insurance for startups.

We're doing this by making insurance fast, responsive, and focused on our customer - startup founders. Instead of printed PDF applications and week-long waits, Vouch is building new technology to solve real problems, writing policies that actually cover relevant startup scenarios, and designing simple experiences in an otherwise frustrating industry.

The Job:

Vouch is looking for a Senior Software Engineer to join our Insurance Platform team. The Insurance Platform team builds APIs that underwrite and issue insurance policies. The team also configures and launches all of Vouch’s insurance policies. You will have the opportunity to quickly contribute critical code and help to shape fundamental aspects of our codebase and engineering culture.

You will:

    Design, build, and maintain APIs, distributed systems, and services
    Help contribute to and scale our  services-oriented architecture efforts
    Work on the core infrastructure for our Insurance platform, including launching and managing insurance programs
    Work closely with internal Vouch users to help them develop user-facing interfaces
    Collaborate with team members on priorities and technical specifications

You may be a good fit for the role if you:

    Have 5+ years of development experience 
    Have experience building distributed systems and APIs as a product or platform
    Are proficient using Ruby
    Have experience in Postgres or another transactional, relational database system, as well as ability to design schemas.
    Have exceptional communication skills. You can effectively talk (and listen) to engineers, designers, product managers, executives, and other stakeholders.
    Have experience with software engineering best practices such as TDD, SOLID, code reviews, A/B testing, etc.
    Have experience with event based systems, message queues, immutable database design

Other Tools We Use:

    TypeScript, Vue.js, Python
    Terraform, Consul, Nomad
    Serverless Framework, Docker
    AWS EventBridge, SNS, SQS, Lambda
