Why join us?
  • This is a massive opportunity - insurance is a $500bn+ industry that desperately needs better technology. We've kept fundraising under wraps so far, but we're backed by the world's leading investors.

  • We're growing incredibly quickly. We launched last July with our first broker to now having 40+ brokers on the platform.

  • There's a trend right now of technology replacing people and killing jobs. We're excited to use technology to empower, rather than replace, and believe that people + technology is the right approach for this industry.

  • Our CTO sold his last company to LinkedIn. The team includes PhD machine learning engineers and alums from Palantir, Amazon, and LinkedIn.


Engineering at Newfront Insurance
Engineering team and processes

We have weekly sprints. Every Tuesday, we'll discuss tickets for the upcoming sprint and add them to the queue in Github. On Friday, we do a show & tell and show off something we shipped to the whole company. We use Pull Requests in Github for code reviews and every engineer can deploy to staging and production using Heroku. We also use CircleCI for running unit tests.

Technical Challenges

Insurance markets are incredibly complicated and opaque. For example, there are thousands of insurance carriers that offer different types of coverage. Every policy has hundreds of details like limits, sublimits, and exclusions. We need to design a canonical representation of risk that can capture all of this structured data.

Projects you might work on
  • Build a Chrome extension to automatically pass data to hundreds of insurance carriers' websites. Every site has a different format and we need to automatically detect changes in each flow.

  • Write a machine learning model to parse insurance policies and identify common features between different carriers. For example, the model needs to match Crime and Burglary & Arson limits.

  • Build a claims management portal for account managers to track claims and share this info with customers
