Senior or Principal Full Stack Engineer | React.js + Python OR Node.js | £70-£110k DOE

An exciting & rapidly growing multi billionaire company is looking to hire several Full Stack Engineers to work on their core projects. They have partnered up with the likes of Google & UCL to develop their new platform.

The company operates within the B2B insurance industry, and specialises in niche insurances. For example, they insure against tornadoes, terrorism & earthquakes to name a few. Over the years, they have been insuring anything from larger businesses to music festivals and satellites.

You'll work on their core offering - which is the platform that has delivered the $400m revenue they achieved in 2021 and are looking to grow exponentially over the next few years. They're a multi-disciplined team, bringing together expertise in software and data engineering, full stack development, platform operations, algorithm research, and data science. The squads focus on delivering high-impact features - they pride themselves on have open and honest conversations about what's working and are quick to adapt to continuously improve.

You'll build robust and scalable software for business critical, web-based applications as well as eye-catching, functional, efficient, and reusable web and mobile-based sites that drive these web applications.

They speak Kotlin for services and Python when working with data, however they would be happy to look at people who work with Node in the back. Their rich UIs are built in React and Typescript. Postgres is the preferred database engine and our infrastructure is entirely cloud based in GCP, defined with Terraform so this experience would be desirable.
