Gaia's mission begins with the world’s first IVF insurance product that predicts fertility outcomes and insures against the risk of failure, a major moment for modernising the family planning process. Underpinning our product is a proprietary predictive technology that adds a layer of certainty to an expensive, complicated, desperate, opaque but resolutely hopeful space.

We have raised $30million in funding to date, our A round at the end of 2021 was led by Atomico (read why here). We are FCA regulated, and trade on the Lloyd's of London market as a cover holder of Beazley.

About the role

You will collaborate with our product, design and other teams to build our initial product. We’ve just gotten started and you'll play an integral role in shaping our product, culture, technology, ways of working and future team. You will work on the end-to-end implementation of features for our consumer-facing experience as well as internal tools.

Our platform predominantly uses TypeScript and the JavaScript ecosystem, running on managed (“serverless”) AWS services. Previous experience with this isn't strictly necessary. What's more important is your general engineering ability rather than your knowledge of a particular language or framework.


About you 

  • You want to work on something (nearly) greenfield. The biggest product and company decisions still lie ahead of us

  • You enjoy working as part of a small, cross-functional team in close partnership with other disciplines. We don’t work in silos

  • You like to take ownership of complex problems. You will need to find creative solutions and get others on board with them

  • You like to understand and solve problems holistically, not only from a technology point of view

  • You can make trade-offs on technical work against business impact and like to iterate fast


Your responsibilities will include

  • Work with the product, design and operations teams to ship features for our consumer-facing application

  • Participate in user research sessions to understand our members' problems

  • Uplift the team by improving our internal tools



  • Experience building beautiful, clean and intuitive web-based products

  • Previous experience mentoring other engineers is preferred but not required

  • Love for the JS/TS ecosystem (and respect for it’s quirks!)

  • Experience with or interest in "serverless" architectures is preferred but not required
