Senior Golang Engineer
› 100% remote position (in the US) (Posted Nov 21 2020)
About the company
Openly is one of the fastest-growing Insurtechs in the country, building a next-generation insurance company from the ground up. We’ve launched our homeowners product with great success in five states and are looking to expand into twenty-five states by the end of 2021. We’re paying close attention to the way customers want insurance to work, and questioning the way things have been done in this industry for over a hundred years - everything from how insurance is quoted and sold, to the frustrating back-end operations that waste money. Insurance is filled with interesting engineering problems that need a fresh perspective. You can watch our Techstars 2018 Demo Day video to learn more about what we’ve built.
This isn’t something we’ve undertaken on a whim - the founding team brings executive-level experience from Liberty Mutual Insurance and Goldman Sachs, with mastery in actuarial science, computer engineering, math, and finance (MIT, Duke, and the University of Michigan). The rest of the team are key early hires who are experts in their respective fields of statistics, actuarial science, and engineering.
We're backed by a select group of deeply knowledgeable and dedicated investors. Our seed round was led by Gradient Ventures (Google’s AI fund) and Obvious Ventures, a socially-minded top-tier VC behind companies like Beyond Meat and Medium, led our recent Series A.
We’re hiring an experienced Go programmer to join our technology team.
