About the role

At AI Insurance you'll build state-of-the-art technology that will redefine the $5 Trillion insurance market. And by joining us now (as Engineer #2 or #3), you’ll make decisions that will shape the future of the company.

About AI Insurance
AI Insurance is the platform that small-to-midsize insurance companies use to run every part of their business. Before we showed up, they used spreadsheets and filing cabinets – wasting as much as 60% of revenue on administrative expenses. We’re doing what Salesforce did for SMB sales teams, but we’re tapping into the over 10,000 insurance companies that waste $238 Billion dollars annually.

Digitizing these businesses is only the beginning. As our customer base grows, we are building the largest insurance dataset ever created. Using it, we can leverage machine learning to automate the claims and underwriting process entirely – redefining the insurance experience from purchase to claim payment.

Why You Should Join Us

  • You’ll work directly with the founder to define engineering priorities and execute on them
  • We’re growing by 50% month-over-month
  • We’re already profitable – allowing us to forge our own destiny
  • We’ve signed >100 customers with market caps as high as $60B – and they love us
    • “If I could hug the AI guys, I would”
    • “This is beautiful!”
    • “I love the AI system..it is an all-around joy!”
    • “You’re telling me I can just click this to export a loss run? Lord above, thank you!”
  • We work with special non-regulated carriers, which means we can innovate without dealing with financial regulation. Imagine if someone told you you could re-build the banking system from the ground up.
  • You’ll become a better engineer. We’re SOC2 and HIPAA compliant, meaning you’ll learn to build a scalable system in a high-stakes environment.

About the Role
In this early stage, your chief responsibility will be writing code, working at all levels of the stack to deliver new features in our fast growing product. That said, your technical decisions will be laying the groundwork for future growth, and you will need to solve problems with scalability in mind. You’ll build systems from the ground up with durability in mind, and with vision for how these systems will serve future use cases and product growth. You will be instrumental in laying out the patterns of engineering best practice, and finding the balance between short term growth and long term technical health.

About You
You’re wildly good at Javascript (we’re all React and Node.js) and you love to learn. You’re excited to build and grow a company as the second engineer, and you have experience developing reliable, complex software. You’re highly productive but take your craft seriously.

You’re confident you can help us cross this inflection point of explosive growth and improve the quality of our codebase simultaneously. You have the humility to know that for the team to scale, you’ll need to recruit engineers who are even better than you or have the potential to be. Finally, you’re excited about our mission to solve the entire insurance process.

Notes

  • Impostor syndrome is real, but we don't want to let that stop us from meeting you! If you have interest in the work we're doing, please apply even if you don't meet all of the requirements. In the timeless words of Jack Sparrow: "They're more like guidelines anyway".
  • Our office is in San Francisco, and this role is for someone who can come into the office. At this early stage it's important that we spend time together!

About the interview

The interview will be mostly conducted by the founder directly. In later rounds, we'll want you to get to meet the other folks on the team though to make sure you like the people you'll be working with.

For the first technical interview, using google is strongly encouraged! We want the experience to be authentic to real-world engineering.

  1. Intro chat to make sure this role and company matches what you want to do
  2. 1 hour technical interview, two questions. Simple programming question, then a system design question. Using google is strongly encouraged! This interview tests if you know how to write Javascript in a real software environment and how much experience you have doing that. The system design problem, helps us see how you think about larger software problems and systems.
  3. Onsite interview (fine to do over zoom if not in the area). 2-3 hours of programming questions including some debugging, programming, and verbal questions.
  4. Meeting with other folks on the team
  5. Reference checks
