Insurance - Senior Software Engineer
uSwitch is a leading price comparison website allowing users to compare
offers from different providers across a broad range of products -
ranging from gas and electricity to mobile phones. The insurance team
manages the insurance comparison tools, the largest of these being car
insurance. While uSwitch is one of the larger price comparison websites
in the UK, the insurance comparison products are relatively small, and
we are currently focused on growing our market share.
The team is autonomous and cross functional, encompassing every role
required to build and improve on our products in the way we best see
fit. We are able to decide product direction ourselves, trying out new
approaches and technologies. This approach allows us to outmanoeuvre our
competitors, to deliver new features to the market and to provide
customers with the best comparison experience.
We choose to use whatever tools are best for the job, and our service
based architecture allows multiple different technologies to work
React), and are always happy to introduce new technologies if they help
us solve the problem at hand. Our architecture is hosted on AWS, and we
deploy multiple times a day without a painful, time consuming sign off process.
Our developers become experts in the insurance domain, with
opportunities to regularly interact with external partners and to grow
to understand the insurance market as a whole, from regulatory oversight
to commercial agreements.
We are looking for a developer to join the team who will be able to
contribute across the stack, but with a particular focus on web
experience. They should be passionate about technology, should be happy
and confident participating in product discussions and influencing the
direction of the team and should be willing to get to grips with the
business problems we face.
