Job Description

At LifeRaft we are looking for a product engineer to join us working on next generation safety nets, using technology to build insurance products that actually work. You’ll be joining an early-stage startup with the opportunity to help build the foundation of the business from the ground up. We are experienced startup operators and insuretech/fintech veterans who are hugely passionate about modernizing enormous industries that haven’t been updated in decades.

Work you might do:


Experiment with new onboarding flows for new customers


Build lightweight data apps that help potential customers better customize their product choices


Integrate new data sources to make enrollment and claims faster and more efficient


Collaborate with product to spec out and implement a new flow for brokers and agents to more easily onboard their clients


Monitor and maintain a live production system with a focus on system health and stability.

About you:


You are passionate about the positive impact that technology can make especially in regulated spaces


You are pragmatic with your technology choices, shying away from the latest and greatest for tried and true


You are detail-oriented, ensuring that the job is done right and well tested


You are value-oriented and are not afraid of hard work to do something great


You seek to balance the short term and long term, eschewing the easy path for the one that generates the most enterprise value


You default to trying and measuring before meeting and discussing


You want to move fast and prefer aggressive goals that stretch you versus conservative ones you know you can reach


You thrive in unstructured early stage environments and are energized by the chase for product market fit

You may have:


Experience working with and maintaining a production software system, ideally in a regulated environment


Experience with compliance audits, such as SOC-2, HIPAA, or PCI


Experience in startup environments and early stage companies


Expertise in Web Development, Python, and JavaScript
