Job description

We believe there's strength in numbers. That's why we've built Huddle, a new model for insurance that cuts out fraud and marketing costs by putting customers back in control.


Over the past year we've developed the basics of this platform and completed a pilot. We've secured $6 million in funding and a sound partnership with The Hollard Insurance Company. We're now expanding and seeking a Platform Engineer to help us.

You'll also be responsible for Huddle's integration with other platforms and solutions. You'll need a strong technical prowess with incredible coding ability anchored in Python and open source technologies. You'll need at least some exposure to Django. You will thrive in a hard-working and fun-loving environment, as part of a team that loves to work together to solve complex problems for our Huddles.

  • Break down tough problems into simple, elegant solutions
  • Understand system interdependencies and limitations in architecture
  • Implement solutions that meet performance, scalability, reliability and high availability
