Senior Backend Engineer

Who we are

When was the last time you were pleasantly surprised by an insurance company? We bet the answer is never—and we've built Feather to change that.

We’re committed to creating a brand new insurance experience. We envision one without commission-hungry brokers, where our customers' best interests are always at the center.

We’re a small, but ambitious team and we’re crazy about fintech and insurance. Our company was founded in 2018 by Rob (CEO) and Vincent (CTO). Vincent was one of the first employees at N26, where he was instrumental in building and scaling their iOS app. Rob was previously working at McKinsey, where he consulted top insurance companies on how to improve their digital strategy.

About the role

We're looking for an experienced Senior Backend Engineer to join our product team remotely.

The product team consists of several cross-functional units that are responsible for different parts of our insurance business. As a part of such a unit, you will be the one to make all the technical decisions necessary to grow our product.

You will be contributing to our TypeScript microservices and APIs, occasionally touching statically typed Python code. Anything you build will be immediately used by our customer base.

We put the customer first, and that is what defines how our tech evolves. We care about the UX of our products, but at the same time, we go out of our way to ensure security and privacy of the customer's data.

We set high standards in that regard, and we use the best tools available to meet them. You will define how the backend architecture and cloud infrastructure look like and collaborate with everyone across the team on the way.
