Full-time · Amsterdam

Join the revolution to free entrepreneurs

Commercial insurance needs to change. Insify was born out of our frustration with how traditional insurers operate. Whereas fintechs have permanently reshaped the finance industry, tech has not yet disrupted insurance. We are well underway to reshape the dull and tedious image of insurance to be engaging, easy, and fair.

About Insify

We are a tech company at heart, building our own data-driven insurance platform. We extensively rely on data (API integrations, automated workflows, rule engines, machine learning) to figure out how to best get (and keep) our customer’s companies insured. Combine that with our fully online portal, real attention to UX, and leading underwriting, then getting your business insured may just become a fun experience.

We’re a team led by seasoned entrepreneurs who have built successful businesses in fintech and e-commerce (HelloFresh, Bloomon, SumUp, and Blendle to name a few!)

We raised a €15M Series A round from one of the leading investors worldwide: Accel Ventures

We're international, with a growing customer base in The Netherlands, France, and Germany, and are rapidly expanding to the rest of Europe

We sell our very own Insify insurance coverages by partnering with Munich Re, the #1 global reinsurer

Your mission

You will build out the heart of Insify: a fully automated platform to underwrite insurances, based on extensive data.

This is where amazing UX, rule engines, workflows, data feeds from external sources as well as our event-sourced web applications come together.

Among others, you work with event-sourcing, serverless lambda functions in AWS, NoSQL databases, and big data.

You take full responsibility for the products you develop with the team and continuously improve and refactor to meet new business needs.

What you'll need

Below we share a list of qualities that we’re looking for in a person. But we also know that some people, often women, do not apply when they can’t reply YES to everything on the list.

That’s why we’d like you to consider this list as a guideline and not as a requirement.

We are looking for amazing humans, not someone who ticks ALL boxes. So if this role seems like something for you, go ahead and apply!

Coding is your bread and butter. We know that a true full-stack engineer is a proper unicorn, and are looking for dominant backend experience. You can stand your ground in the frontend though. As our platform is all about data, interest or experience in big data is a big plus.

You have seen your fair share of microservice architecture, programming paradigms and languages. You love to use Typescript's power to avoid errors. You know how to architect a clean solution that prevents security, performance, and maintenance pitfalls. You have a strong focus on test-first and quality. You like to learn and make sure you stay on top of technological developments.

  • You have an affinity and experience in backend development in NodeJS and Typescript. Experience in other languages helps to bring perspective.
  • You know your way around in React or Vue to some extent.
  • You prefer strongly typed and functional languages to simply know it works when the build says “ok”, with Clean Coding as your daily mantra.
  • You can demonstrate you created challenging software. Large-scale, applications beyond the 2,000-line textbook example. More than once.
  • DevOps experience, esp. Amazon Web Services (AWS), is a plus.
  • ML, big data experience won't hurt either.
  • You have an engineering degree (MSc or equivalent, PhD most welcome) in Computer Science or equivalent.
  • Given the insurtech domain, relevant experience in the insurance or finance industry is certainly a plus.

What we offer

  • Join the ride of a lifetime, building the first pan-European Neo-Insurer
  • Apply your skills and talents to disrupt one of the biggest global industries. And show the world insurance can be fair, transparent, and trustworthy
  • Work with a small group of very experienced and dedicated entrepreneurs
  • Work in a start-up environment: scale rapidly, pick up your own initiatives, directly contribute to the development of the Company
  • Innovate and learn at Lab Days, tech learning & Uncle Bob's clean coding sessions
  • Enjoy a competitive salary and equity package
  • Enjoy a Pension plan and wellbeing budget
  • Work from our HQ in Amsterdam HQ, Europe’s highest valued startup ecosystem
  • Our team has lots of nationalities; English is our company language
  • Relocation support and Visa Sponsorship for the right candidate

  • Backend: Typescript NodeJs, fully serverless + CQRS + event-sourced + event-driven, Clean (Hexagonal) architecture
  • Deployment: AWS cloud-native, Terraform, Github Actions
  • Data: Databricks with many data pipelines and ML
  • Spolsky test: 10 out of 12, and continuously improving
