We need someone who is deeply technical and understands APIs, relational data models, and can write top-notch SQL. You also will need to build solutions with developers so you must be willing to get your hands dirty in implementation details while conveying the business and product vision. 

We promise this is the most fun you’ll have in your career and also the hardest thing you’ll do. Still interested? Here’s what you need to know:

What will you do?

  • Be a thorough UAT tester, validating user stories throughout the entire technology stack 
  • Be able to write and design entity relationship diagrams and be able to test them using SQL 
  • Think like the customer and always put them first.

What do you need?  

  • Bachelor’s in Information Systems, Computer Science, or related field. 
  • 5 years as a BA, product owner, or product manager in an Agile Scrum Environment 
  • Highly proficient in SQL 
  • At least 2 years writing Acceptance Criteria in the form of BDD scenarios 
  • At least 2 years working on API driven applications and experience writing API documentation 
  • Natural curiosity and a passion for providing the best user experience possible 
  • Previous insurance experience is not needed.  
  • High levels of energy, integrity, and curiosity 
  • A bias for action and willingness to be accountable for your actions 
  • A sense of humor is also a must. We’re getting funnier but we can still be funnier-er.

What's in it for you?

  • Unlimited vacation, we hire adults 
  • Equity for all employees, so you own a piece of the pie too 
  • Dental and Vision, we've got you covered 100%
  • Medical, we cover 90% of your premium,  75% of your dependents and contribute to your HSA and HRA (cha-ching)
  • While we don't match yet, our 401(K) is pretty slick 
  • Come to work pre-taxed through our FSA commuter benefits 
  • and yes, we have unlimited LaCroix, beer, snacks and the occasional ice cream social

An Insider's view of Clearcover

What's something quirky about your company?

It’s surprising how much we all grow to love discussing insurance. Everyone is genuinely interested in how the industry works and sharing knowledge. I think we feel we owe it to our customers to understand how insurance works, so they don’t have to. We’ve likely all thought at one point, “Wow, I never thought I’d care about insurance this much.”


Senior Software Engineer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Whether I'm working with Product to promote a feature launch or partnering with our Customer Advocate team to communicate updates to customers, I get to collaborate across teams, leverage my skills & improve my expertise every day. Clearcover nurtures a collaborative environment and encourages thinking outside the box to deliver better experiences.
