Senior Software Engineer (Back End) at Zego
London, GB

The world deserves better insurance.

At Zego, we’re reinventing an outdated industry and giving people the flexibility they need, allowing them to work on their own terms. Our platform provides super flexible insurance premiums, which offer workers in the gig economy the chance to work the hours they want without the pressure of having to pay for an expensive insurance premium upfront.

In 2018 we were listed as one of the top 3 disruptors to watch on the Sunday Times Fast Track 100. We were also listed in Wired magazine as one of the 5 hottest startups in London.

Recently we closed our series B round, raising $42M from top-tier investors that will fuel our growth into new territories and the expansion of our insurance portfolio.

Our recent success means that we’re currently scaling rapidly and hiring people that can help us supercharge our growth, while still embodying the values that have gotten us so far already.

We're looking for a Senior Python/Django Engineer to help us work across a number of initiatives across platform, data, architecture and team mentoring.

Over the next 12 months:

  • You will have the opportunity to play a key role in developing new core insurance products.
  • You will iterate on existing products to ensure we're providing the best insurance on the market.
  • You will help evolve the architecture of our platform to support our long term vision.
  • You will contribute to code reviews and mentoring of other engineers.

Requirements

Our core application is built on top of the Django web framework and hosted on AWS. We typically use Python 3, Postgres, Celery, and whatever else we need to get the job done.

We're looking for people with a strong working knowledge of Python and a commitment to building, nurturing, and iterating on an ever-evolving codebase.

Benefits

  • Get to know our customers: credit with Uber and Deliveroo
  • Santander cycle keys, DriveNow credit and in-house e-scooters
  • Brand new Zego wardrobe: hoodies, tees, stickers and more
  • Therapy and coaching: make the most of life at Zego
  • Competitive salary, pension, 25 days’ annual leave (+ bank holidays)
  • Free breakfast every Friday
  • All the tools you need to get the job done
