As an Engineering Lead at Newfront, you will work with a team building features across the platform to help clients manage their risk and supercharge our brokers. There are tons of challenging technical problems to solve that directly impact the lives of your teammates and Newfront clients.

Our business is built on the idea that there are certain tasks that humans do really well and others that are better suited for computers.

This includes machine learning to structure PDF documents, Phantom.js scripts to pass data to insurance carriers, and a beautiful customer dashboard.

Who we're looking for:

  • You are product-focused and put the user's needs front and center
  • You prefer no code to less code and less code to more code
  • You are able to own engineering projects from start to finish, including making design decisions and communicating with other teams

  • Postgres database
  • Github/CircleCI
