Getsafe has been growing rapidly and our infrastructure with it. We're proud of the systems we've built so far, but we want to bring in strong technical leaders to help us accelerate in our next phase of growth.

Your role and the impact you'll have:

  • Be a key leader in architecting and implementing the future of our core insurance systems, allowing us to more rapidly build and iterate our insurance products. Be a critical part of making it possible for us to effectively scale our products into more countries
  • Mentor and work with other engineers to implement these solutions
  • Work closely with product managers to understand our short and long-term goals and make sure other engineers are making the right technical decisions to achieve them.
  • Hold yourself and the team to high technical standards
  • Continually figure out ways to leverage our technology for bigger impact

  • A strong interest in learning and keeping up with industry standards. You don't need to be an expert in everything, but if there's a problem we need to solve, we expect you to be able to do the deep research to figure out how we need to solve it.
  • You can distill a complex problem into multiple parts and clearly communicate your technical vision to the team
