About us: Insurance... sounds slow, old-fashioned, and unexciting. Exactly. Insurance is broken, and it's failing fast-moving, innovative startups. Vouch is a new, technology-first insurance company, backed with $24.5M in funding from world-class investors. Like Stripe for payments or Brex for credit cards, Vouch is creating the go-to business insurance for startups. We're doing this by making insurance fast, responsive, and focused on our customer - startup founders. Instead of printed PDF applications and week-long waits, Vouch is building new technology to solve real problems, writing policies that actually cover relevant startup scenarios, and designing simple experiences in an otherwise frustrating industry. The Role: Vouch is looking for a Front End Engineer to join our team. You will have the opportunity to quickly contribute critical code and help to shape fundamental aspects of our codebase and engineering culture. Our Ideal Candidate: 5+ years of industry experience writing front-end production code Expert in one or more modern JavaScript frameworks like Vue, React or Angular (in order of preference) Strong understanding of the latest ES standards and language features Build reusable front-end interfaces and components with various levels of abstraction Collaborate closely with product and design teams to build new features and beautiful interactive interfaces in mobile and desktop environments Strong understanding of modern asynchronous architecture (lazy/optimistic loading, handling 'offline' application state, etc.) Strong understanding of how to measure and optimize front-end performance and pagespeed metrics Nice to haves: Exposure to developing full stack in different programming languages (preferably Ruby/Python) Experience with Typescript Experience working with and building REST APIs as well as API design principles and best practices What We Offer: Medical/Dental/Vision insurance Reimbursements for cell, commuter benefits, and wellness (gym, classpass, etc.) Vouch is an equal opportunity employer and values diversity at our company.
