Back-end Engineer

| Santa Monica

 Since raising our initial funding at the end of 2016, we’ve been focused on growing our team, building the first version of our product, and preparing for our Summer 2017 initial launch. We are building out our core team of engineers with folks who can hit the ground running writing code. We currently have a small team of engineers, so this role will allow for a great deal of influence on all engineering and product decisions. We build our back-end as a API that our front end consumes. Engineers design APIs and build scalable, reliable systems.

 
Our stack:
  • Front-end: NodeJS / React / Sass
  • Back-end: Python3 / Flask / Postgres
  • Infrastructure: AWS / Ansible
Responsibilities
  • Design, build, and maintain reusable code
  • Collaborate with team members to develop new features
  • Participate in code and design reviews
Qualifications
  • You know how to build software and like writing code
  • 3+ years experience in software development; startup experience a big plus
  • Experience with Python in a production environment
  • Experience integrating with third-party APIs
  • Practical knowledge of relational databases
  • BS or MS in Computer Science from a top school preferred, but a portfolio of great projects you've built is even better

An Insider's view of Renew

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

This has by far been the best work-life balance I have experienced in a professional setting! It's a little cliche to say work hard play hard, but its so easy to do when you're helping solve a problem you're passionate about with a crew you truly enjoy being around.

Operations Manager

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

The biggest challenge for my team has been giving the customer an accurate estimate of their prescription drug costs. Unlike other insurance, medicare plans’ drug prices change over the year. We take government data, third-party vendors, and in-house research to calculate the monthly costs, which gives more clarity to a confusing pricing system.

Mike

Senior Developer, Back End

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Our most valuable asset is the people who work at Renew. We welcome and encourage ideas from everyone--both informally and through formal cross-team syncs and offsites. We are operating in a space with so much potential where so little has been done, making it ripe for reimagination.

Kevin

CEO
