About Vouch

Vouch is building the future of commercial insurance: instead of having to go through stodgy brokers, and long paper-based applications, Vouch will make it easy for any Seed or Series-A stage company to get all of the business insurance (property, liability of various sorts) they need, and will ensure that this coverage scales as a company does.

About the role

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 $100M in funding from world-class investors. Like Stripe for payments or Brex for credit cards, Vouch is creating the go-to business insurance for high growth companies.

We're doing this by making insurance fast, responsive, and focused on our customer -high growth and innovative companies. 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 Role:

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 Node, Typescript, or 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

Tools & Technologies

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

Vouch believes in putting our people first and building a diverse team is at the front of everything that we do. We welcome people from different backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives. We are an equal opportunity employer and celebrate the diversity of our growing team.

Technology

Our team tackles challenging technical and design problems to provide a fast and easy way for tech companies to acquire insurance coverage. We maintain a responsibility focused engineering culture and an ‘Act like an owner’ mentality. Much of our platform has been built with Vue, Javascript, and Ruby on Rails, but we're open to speaking to any strong technologists who are excited about our space.
