Full Stack Engineer



Software Engineering
London, UK
Posted on Friday, May 5, 2023

Are you keen to work somewhere that’s stimulating and friendly, with loads of opportunities for growth and plenty of freedom to make a real impact? This could be the place for you!

We are looking for a full stack engineer to join us at INSHUR; we are based in sunny Brighton (sea, chips and seagulls included) and we split our working between home and the office (hybrid working) which typically includes working from our Brighton office twice a week. We prefer getting together for workshops, events, and certain meetings, but understand that this isn't always possible for everyone. So, just like our product, we are flexible.

You’ll be working on re-inventing insurance in exciting markets across multiple territories including the UK, New York and the Netherlands, and new European countries and US states.

We’ve got a great team in place and are proud of our culture (check out our Glassdoor reviews). We value high performance and care deeply about making INSHUR feel like a place where everyone is building something really special, that we can all be proud of, and doing it with talented colleagues.

What you'll do

Our company is seeking a highly skilled and experienced Full Stack Software Engineer to join our dynamic team. The successful candidate will be responsible for the development and maintenance of our web-based software platform. You will have a proven track record of delivering high-quality software solutions and be able to work independently as well as part of a team. As a full stack engineer you will have a strong understanding of both front-end and back-end development, as well as excellent communication skills.

We don’t have a definite checklist of skills - our hiring process is much more about aptitude and passion than ticking boxes. So don’t worry if you’ve not used a particular tool or checked off all the listed skills and experience.

That said, below is a guideline of skills that we think would make you successful in this role.

We'd love to hear from you if you:

  • Design, develop and maintain web-based software applications
  • Write clean, maintainable and efficient code
  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams to identify and solve complex software problems
  • Participate in code reviews, testing and debugging
  • Develop and maintain technical documentation
  • Provide technical guidance to junior developers
  • Keep up-to-date with emerging trends and technologies in software development

Key Skills needed:

  • Minimum of 4 years of experience in software development
  • Proven experience with front-end frameworks such as React, Angular, or Vue.js
  • Proven experience with back-end languages such as Node.js or Java
  • Experience with cloud-based platforms such as Google Cloud, AWS orAzure
  • Experience with version control systems such as Git
  • Strong understanding of software development principles such as SOLID, TDD, and Agile

Your colleagues say you:

  • Have brilliant communication skills
  • Love solving problems
  • You have a passion for technology and keep update with emerging trends
  • Great to collaborate with

We offer all our employees stock options and we will pay into your pension monthly. We've also built a benefits package that invests in our people’s long-term personal and professional growth and wellbeing. Here’s a sample of what this includes:

  • 30 days of holiday annually in addition to bank holidays
  • Private healthcare scheme for you and your family
  • Life Insurance
  • Up to 13 weeks of parental leave at full pay, regardless of your gender
  • Flexible working hours
  • Annual personal training allowance and regular learning opportunities
  • Monthly flexible wellbeing allowance to help you stay healthy and productive

It goes without saying that we provide everyone with a laptop, monitor, top of the range kit, and any software you need.
