DigiSure is an early-stage startup reimagining the way insurance is packaged, priced and serviced as an essential part of the modern, on-demand world we live in today.

  • Help design and implement our data structures, security models and internal tools.
  • Work closely with our product managers on our roadmap to design new features for our partners.
  • Influence and define engineering team culture, best practices and processes.

What you'll need:

  • Bachelor's degree or higher in an engineering field or equivalent.
  • 5+ years experience designing and building large-scale distributed systems.
  • Solid programming skills in Ruby
  • Experience with SQL/noSQL databases, e.g. PostgreSQL or MongoDB.
