    PolicyFly is looking for a Senior Backend Engineer (Golang)

    PolicyFly empowers insurers to sell and manage specialty insurance in minutes instead of months. Every year, $200B of specialty insurance like Cyber, Flood, or Trucking is processed over email between agents and insurers. It’s a slow, inefficient world where 55% of agents' time is spent on paperwork and it can take 30-90 days to get coverage.

    Our mission is to create a modern exchange for… hard-to-insure things – connecting all parties to automate workflows and consolidate data. We are modernizing specialty insurance with software. We’re already managing $70M in premium with leading insurers in both the US and UK markets.

    We’re on the hunt for a talented Senior Backend Engineer that will help transform the ancient world of specialty insurance with robust, distributed systems and clean, backend API architectures. We are converting prior monolith architectures to microservices and rapidly adding various system integrations as the product matures.

    Think you’re a good fit? Please apply, we’d love to chat!
