Senior Backend Engineer (Remote)

Published date Posted on Indeed on May 05, 2022 (19 d ago)

Openly is rebuilding insurance from the ground up. We are re-envisioning and enhancing every aspect of the customer experience. Doing this requires a rapidly growing team of exceptional, curious, empathetic people with a wide range of skill sets, spanning technology, data science, product, marketing, sales, service, claims handling, finance, etc.

Now is the perfect time to join the journey. Here's why

  • It's working. We're in multiple states and on our way to operating countrywide. We have thousands of agents selling our product and millions of dollars of annual customer premiums.
  • We're well backed & stable. We closed our $40M Series B fundraise. We are supported by some of the top investors globally, including Google's “Gradient (https://www.gradient.com/)” AI-focused fund, Obvious Ventures (https://obvious.com/) (Beyond Meat, etc.), and Advance Venture Partners (https://www.avp.vc/).
  • It's not too late! Despite this traction and stability, we're still early enough in the journey that there's time to make a real difference during Openly's formative period.
