Remote, US · Full time


At Liferaft, we are looking for a product engineer to join us working on next generation safety nets, using technology to build insurance products that actually work. We look to Product Engineers to bring a breadth of technical skill in software development to develop products on top of existing systems or from scratch. You'll be joining an early-stage startup with the opportunity to help build the foundation of the business from the ground up.

Collaborate with product to spec out and implement a new flow for brokers and agents to more easily onboard their clients

Monitor and maintain a live production system with a focus on system health and stability

Ways you would describe yourself:

You are passionate about the positive impact that technology can make, especially in regulated spaces

You are pragmatic with your technology choices, shying away from the latest and greatest for tried and true

You are detail-oriented, ensuring that every job is done well and completely

You are value-oriented and not afraid of hard work needed to make something great

You seek to balance the short term and long term, eschewing the easy path for the one that generates the most enterprise value

You default to trying and measuring before meeting and discussing

You want to move fast and prefer aggressive goals that stretch you versus conservative ones you know you can reach

You thrive in unstructured, early stage environments, and are energized by autonomy and responsibility

You are driven to improve yourself and learn from those around you

Experience you might have:

Experience working with and maintaining production software system

Experience building new software products from the ground up

Experience in startup environments and early stage companies

Expertise in Frontend or Backend Web Development

Expertise in building reliable, tested, software systems

Bonus points for:

Experience developing software in a regulated environment (e.g. SOC-2, PCI, HIPAA)

Expertise in Python and Go

Expertise in Javascript and Typescript

Experience in a bureaucratic environment (we strive to avoid unnecessary bureaucracy but find the experience helps with understanding our industry partners)
