Tint is Stripe for Insurance. We empower tech platforms to sell more by embedding unique insurance and guaranteeing products that protect their end-users. We help companies such as Deel, Outdoorsy, Guesty, Neighbor, CitizenShipper, and Riders Share, among others, unlock the growth of their core business and improve profitability with insurance.
Our product provides everything needed to run an insurance program, from setting underwriting rules to managing customers' policies to handling claims. All are available through a simple API and a no-code app.
We've raised $30M and are backed by world-class investors such as Y Combinator, QED, Deciens, Nyca, Plug and Play, WIN, Soma Capital, Pioneer Fund, and angels such as Vikram Pandit (former CEO Citigroup) and founders/CEOs of Oscar Health, Sun Microsystems, Zuora, Gusto, Kin, Turo, Mercury, Wepay, Ramp, amongst others.
With Tint, our customers protect their end-users when something unexpected happens. They can include this coverage for free or provide it as an add-on. To date, we've helped millions of users get peace of mind.
About the role 🎯
You will join one of the Tint pods. Pods are product teams working on a specific feature of the platform. Each pod gathers engineers, designers, and product managers. They all have high autonomy to answer our customers' needs.
Your main goal is to find solutions to fulfill our customer requirements. You are the privileged interlocutor within your pod. You help figure out the easiest and most reliable way to implement a new feature on the platform and solve its ambiguity.
With a strong technical background, you can reason about the platform's design and understand its code changes' impact. You would strive to reduce technical debt as much as possible, structuring the code in a scalable and maintainable way.
You are responsible for the technical part of your pod, including your pod's internal documentation and the engineering learning processes (retrospectives, technical discussions, etc.). You would also lead and execute all the major refactorings required to speed up your team.
You would also mentor more junior engineers. You would help them ramp up to productivity as fast as possible, either as an onboarding buddy or a pod lead engineer.
Sharing knowledge is one of the pillars of our engineering culture. We expect you to also contribute to this knowledge. Writing internal documentation, being an onboarding buddy, driving peer programming sessions... There are plenty of ways to improve internal knowledge. But, we also expect you to share knowledge outside Tint, through blog posts, talks, open-source contributions, etc.
You don't need to be familiar with all our technical stacks. Yet, we expect that you ramp up quickly on these technologies. Our stack is based on Node: we are using React, GraphQL, Express, or Terraform (to handle our AWS stack),
- At least five years of past professional experience as a software engineer (not necessarily in the insurance industry)
- Fast learner to ramp up quickly on our insurance domain
- Stay informed about the current industry's state of the art
- Capable of scoping down bigger initiatives to more actionable parts
- Ability to provide relevant feedback, both on feature requests and the technical side
- Good English level: we are an international team, and we communicate only in English
- Desire to mentor more junior developers and help them grow up
- Willingness to roll up your sleeves in a fast-paced startup environment
- Good fit for remote working
- Having a technical blog or maintaining some open-source projects is a plus.
- 100% remote, distributed, and inclusive team (EU and US time zones) 🗿
- Health Benefits and 401k plan (US only) 🏥
- Competitive salary 💰
- Generous equity grant 📈
- Co-working stipend 🗄
- Equipment package 💻
- Company-sponsored team retreats in exotic destinations 🌍
We are committed to building a diverse and inclusive company. We welcome people of different backgrounds, experiences, abilities, and perspectives. We seek to create a culture where everyone can belong because we believe that people do their best work when they can show up daily as their authentic selves.
