We are pleased to present the following job opportunity with our client!  Take a look and if you meet the requirements please submit your resume and we'll be in touch if you're a good fit!

We’re a mid-size, global company, and we’re looking for a full-stack developer to build new technology and invent new categories to change the way people buy insurance and transfer risk.

Each member of the team will be working closely with the customer throughout the product development process – from conception, to build, to launch. Everyone will create paper prototypes. Everyone will meet with customers. And the work will have impact immediately: we aim to ship new products within 2 months of your start date – and increase in pace from there on out.

As one of the founding members of a small, multi-disciplinary team of developers, designers, and product strategists, you’ll have the freedom to make key product decisions without much oversight, and the tools and resources to build and ship ideas quickly. You’ll be a part of a startup-like environment in a company with access to users within the workforce of some of the most influential companies on the planet.

Who you are

You’re working at a start-up with a life-span near its finish. You’re the talented member of a team at a popular technology company looking for the opportunity to have more control and leadership. You’re the workhorse at an agency, tired of coding products for promotions instead of real users. Ever thought of creating your own product?

Some signs you might be ready:
  • You’re a team player. You can talk with designers, product owners, and senior stakeholders. You're not just a coder; you're someone who knows how to get things made. You start imagining how to turn experiences into products as soon as you see the paper prototype, and you know how to prod for the right direction before you start hacking away. You might have led others and shipped an experience well-received by users, one that wasn’t just incremental change but an entirely new product. In your spare time, you’ve collaborated with friends to conduct experiments outside of work.
  • You've got technical expertise. You can build mobile and web apps (and you've done it before). We're flexible about language and approach as long as you're working in a codebase you're confident writing for and which you know will deliver the right results. You can decipher the code of others, and you understand your way around legacy infrastructure and architecture.
  • You’ve been exposed to the architecture for a large, high scale application that integrates into multiple systems.
  • You put users first. You believe that users should have the loudest voice in the room. You make to learn. You understand the role of validation and its place in the product development process.
  • Your code is so clean, it’s nearly self-documenting.
  • You’ve worked on an agile team and can sprint like Usain Bolt.
  • Great with numbers, tables, charts, trends – everything data.

What you'll own
  • Lovingly crafting backend interfaces from product designs.
  • Implementing front-end prototypes used to validate product concepts and iterating on those that stick.
  • Proposing tool chain standards and practices.
  • Deploying code and creating hooks to keep things operational.
  • Write snappy code, from flexible JavaScript libraries to concise, reusable models
  • Work with the latest open-source projects designed to scale
  • Build system architectural components for products that create market-defining experiences
  • Work closely together with our small, multi-disciplinary team to build compelling product experiences and implementing exciting new features that use groundbreaking technologies for web and mobile
  • Creatively figure out how to use customer data to inform decision-making
  • Participate in usability testing, translating findings back into code

Skillset (hopefully many if not all of):
  • RESTful API integration
  • Database Architecture and Management (SQL, Hadoop, Cassandra)
  • Cloud and Rack-based server cluster management
  • Scripting (Python, Javascript)
  • Frontend Frameworks (AngularJS, React, Backbone, Sails, Node)
  • Rapid development and deployment approaches (Docker, Django, Bootstrap, Heroku, New Relic)
Very competitive salary and benefits!
