What You Will Impact

You will be directly owning and working on modules that will be or are already used in production.

As a backend developer, you would be directly working on one or more of:
  • Production server apps and systems that affect all our customers.
  • Realisation of algorithms connecting different data pipelines.

  • Existing systems’ optimizations or redesign for better scale and stability.

How to get stuff done! You will solve real-world challenges that no experience or training can help you.

You will learn to deploy in scale that will affect millions in multiple ways - be it underwriting algorithms, APIs or databases.
