In case this isn't obvious: you need insurance. The distaste you just felt at the word “insurance” is what drives us to upend the industry. Financial protection might never be super fun, but at least it can be easy.

Policygenius is a NYC-based tech startup with a mission to help people get the financial protection they need and have them feel good about it. We are changing a massive industry by making insurance shopping faster, friendlier and more transparent for online consumers. Since our launch in 2014, we’ve achieved rapid growth in a notoriously difficult industry and established ourselves as a pioneer in a now hot sector of FinTech. We're at an exciting inflection point, having raised over $52 million of venture capital, and we're focused on building out our powerhouse team. Think of us as a one-stop-shop for all the financial protection you’ll ever need.

Engineering

We love to learn. And to ask questions. We’re passionate, caring and a little quirky. We hope there is something non-work related that gets you really excited, because we’d love to share in it.

We’ll set you up with whichever tools you need to succeed (hardware, software, books, etc). And you’ll work in our sweet new office space in Flatiron!

We’re into light process that keeps us focused and happy. We perform code reviews in Github, we pair program and we keep ourselves in check with continuous integration.

What we expect from you...

  • You have a minimum of 5+ years experience in software engineering (preferably with web technologies)
  • You have designed, deployed and scaled real-world web apps
  • You have a solid understanding of object oriented design and design patterns and know when to use them (and more importantly, when NOT to use them)
  • You have a well defined idea of what best practices are and know how to roll them out
  • You have had to strike a balance between building sustainable software systems and shipping product, e.g. not over-engineering
  • You are a solid communicator and are able to translate engineering related items to non-technical stakeholders
