Fullstack Engineer

Groundspeed

This is a Full-time position in Ann Arbor, MI posted November 19, 2021.

Who We Are

Groundspeed Analytics (“Groundspeed”) is one of the fastest-growing insurtech companies globally.

Driven by innovative artificial intelligence (AI) solutions, Groundspeed is disrupting the $300 billion commercial insurance industry.

Our clients include top insurance carriers and brokers such as Travelers, Aon, Liberty Mutual, The Hartford, Swiss Re, and others. 

The insurance industry sits on massive amounts of unstructured data, and the lack of access and utilization of this data creates a barrier to revenue growth and expense reduction.

Groundspeed helps the industry by unlocking the value in their unstructured data.

Whether it is automating processes and/or providing insights derived from machine learning, Groundspeed is helping the commercial insurance industry maximize their business opportunities. 

Groundspeed is recognized by industry analysts as a leader and was recently named to the 250 Top FinTech startups in 2020 by CB Insights and the Insurtech Hot 100.

Headquartered in Ann Arbor, Groundspeed’s team is distributed across more than 10 locations in the US, including San Francisco, Denver, Chicago, and Atlanta.

About The Role

We are looking for creative, enthusiastic, and collaborative professionals who don’t shy away from hard problems.

Our team is made up of people from a diverse set of fields, industries, and backgrounds — all of whom are focused on bringing everything they can offer to make this a successful team.

We look for people who have a personal sense of responsibility to produce the best products and services possible, and expect the same from their team members.

We are a culture that believe in iteration and strives to add value each and every sprint, and to do so without ego.

Our ideal candidate is an experienced software engineer with a proven track record delivering production quality software over, at least, the last five years.

This isn’t a “connect-the-dots” dev position — our engineers must be able to take loosely defined, complex ideas and run with them, working toward elegant results.

You’ll work with small teams to help define and, most importantly, build the systems and tooling for our data pipeline and analytics products, including creating advanced AI-driven automation, big data systems, analytical models, and applications to tie it all together.

What You’ll Do

  • Working with customers and internal stakeholders to design and build UIs and application services
  • Work with customers and business analysts to develop features that add immediate value and get released to the real world quickly
  • Work with internal teams to automate processes which are painful or time consuming for them.
  • Write reliable, scalable, maintainable software primarily in JavaScript, Node, or Python
  • Participate in code reviews and provide mentorship in a variety of software engineering areas to other team members

What We’re Looking For

  • BS degree in Computer Science or related field, or equivalent practical experience
  • At least three years of experience contributing significantly to the development of cloud-native software solutions and web applications
  • Real-world experience creating containerized build and deployment environments
  • Background in multiple testing methodologies, such as unit testing, integration testing, load testing, etc.
  • Knowledge of agile software development and continuous integration / deployment principles
  • Fluency in a frontend MVC framework (we use React and Redux)
  • Real-world experience with frontend build systems and deployment workflows (we use Webpack, Babel, Mocha, and Docker)
  • Fluency in backend frameworks a plus (we use Python/Flask, Node/Express/Meteor)

Why Choose Groundspeed?

  • Participate in the engineering process from start to finish — we value a culture of responsibility
  • A collaborative team with mentors for every skill-level
  • Use the best tools — productivity is key
  • Immediate impact on challenging engineering tasks — rapid prototyping and iteration are essential to an efficient engineering process
  • A culture that is committed to work-life balance
  • A broad and growing benefits package that includes 3% contribution to a 401K plan, amazing health insurance, wellness reimbursement, snacks and drinks, and lunches every Friday
  • Contribute to one of the fastest growing startups in Michigan in terms of revenue, headcount, and tech

We are Committed to a Diverse Workforce 

Groundspeed is committed to creating a diverse environment and is proud to be an equal opportunity employer.
