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.
This is not a manual QA position. Vouch desires to make an investment in scenario-based test automation and increase prevalence of quality automation with dedicated testing infrastructure engineering. As a Lead Software Engineer on the SDET team at Vouch, you will help build an engineering culture that enables quality in all software development teams at Vouch. This role is unique and offers the opportunity to take on high impact projects that impact every part of the business.
We pride ourselves on making things fast, easy, and tailored for our customers. You’ll be responsible for helping us scale that reputation.
