Job Description

Who We Are

Bestow is a digital life insurance company built on full stack technology and AI. In a world in need of greater financial resilience and protection, Bestow democratizes access to smart financial products and powers some of the world’s leading consumer platforms. We are reimagining and rebuilding a 400-year-old, $7 trillion industry to create a brighter future for millions of families. And we’re just getting started.

The Bestow team is a diverse band of first principles thinkers on a mission to do good. We’re fortunate to be backed by leading investors and partners including Valar Ventures, NEA, 8VC and MunichRe.

As a Senior Back End Engineer you will lead development on new features and technical improvements for our products. You should be able to define technical design and implement work independently. You should have prior experience architecting systems. Bestow software engineers are great teammates. You are willing to collaborate with other software engineers, product managers and designers. You are someone that strives to build a premier engineering organization.

Challenges on Which You Can Expect to Work:

  • Building Product Features. We’re a startup with a long product roadmap. You’ll be working with a team to make that roadmap a reality.
  • Develop new product features using Python 3, Go, and PostgreSQL.
  • Resolve issues with previously delivered features.
  • Ensure software is secure, maintainable and extensible.
  • Collaborate with designers, product managers and other engineers.
  • Ensuring a Robust Software Platform. Great software is more than product features. It simultaneously considers non-functional concerns like security, maintainability and extensibility.
  • Fostering Best Practices. We might be small but we’ve got big ambitions. Folks joining the team will be defining our software engineering culture.

A Little About You:

  • Min 4+ years of back end software development experience
  • Professional experience with Python 3; Experience with Flask a plus
  • Professional experience with a relational database like PostgreSQL
  • Experience with strongly typed languages (Golang, Kotlin, Rust, etc)
  • Experience using Docker for local software development
  • Experience designing APIs (Protocol Buffers, RAML, Swagger, OpenAPI, etc)
  • Experience with distributed systems and microservices
  • A champion for Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery (CI/CD)
  • Clear, concise written and verbal communication
  • You thrive in a highly independent work culture and are capable of working autonomously
  • You have initiative and motivation to make things happen
  • You always want to sit next to the person who is smarter than you because you value a culture of mentorship and learning
  • You are egoless, hold yourself accountable and you have a thoughtful approach to adopting new technology
  • You are looking to bring your voice and talent to a mission-driven company in ways that help it to grow and expand its reach.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

Golang Developer with ActiveState
Vancouver, BC, Canada / Remote$40k - $100k
8 months ago

Job Description

Are you a Golang developer that’s passionate about developer tooling? ActiveState is looking for developers to level up their end-user tooling team. This team is mainly responsible for “the State Tool”, a new command line tool we’re developing that allows you to quickly jump-start runtime environments for your projects. Backed by ActiveState’s new platform we’ll be able to provide developer tooling unlike any you’ve seen before.

If you know Python, Perl, or Tcl you’ve probably heard of ActiveState’s language distros. Now we’re building an ambitious language distribution platform and set of tools so that coders can focus on coding and spend less time worrying about dependency hell, third party vulnerabilities, and inconsistent developer environments.  We’re doing this for every language and platform on the planet (and beyond). We need your help to do it! Best of all you’ll be working on a product that you’ll use yourself daily.

This position is based out of our headquarters in beautiful Vancouver, BC. Remote work will be considered, but only for candidates in North America.

WHAT YOU’LL BE DOING

Your job is to help us build the tools that take the pain out of developing code in teams. Our lofty goal is to replace the venerable README file with a single command. You’ll work on command line clients, editor tooling, and more. While a primary amount of your job will be described as back-end work you must be comfortable with a little front-end work as well.

When not working on code, you’ll be meeting with your team to figure out priorities, features, technical issues, etc. You’re someone with good technical knowledge who also has an interest in the end-product you’ll be building.

Our day to day work practices are centered around GitHub, pull requests, code review, CI for testing, and agile development with Pivotal Tracker as our project management tool. We’re always looking to improve our practices and we expect you to help us to do so.

We’re a polyglot company and embrace using the best language for the given task at hand. You’ll regularly find Golang, Elm, Javascript, Python, Docker, Kubernetes, DCOS, CircleCI, and other modern tools. Quality is as important as speed. We’re building for the long run, so you’ll need to be proficient in writing tests and documentation too.

Our back ends and command line tools for interacting with our Platform are written in Go. While certain extended components of the platform that you might interact with from time to time are written in Elm and Python. We’re also aiming to get a foothold in TypeScript for future editor plugin work.

The team is scattered around the US and Canada, so we coordinate with each other and the rest of the company using Slack for chat, Highfive for video calls and screen sharing, Pivotal Tracker, and the Google Suite.

We like to use open source software whenever possible, and we also like to contribute back to the open source ecosystem. We embrace open sourcing both libraries and tools developed in-house as long as those are not mission-critical code.

WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU

  • Working for a stable and growing company that offers the environment and personal growth potential of a start-up.
  • The chance to work with a smart, passionate team of people.
  • The chance to work on a project that will change the work lives of developers around the world, including your own!
  • Competitive salary, bonus, and stock option plan.
  • Comprehensive benefits package and health/wellness credit program.

REQUIREMENTS 

  • Experience with Go.
  • The ability to quickly pick up new languages and technologies.
  • Experience with relational database (mysql, postgres, ..).
  • Basic knowledge of JavaScript and front end development.
  • Experience with all 3 major platforms (Linux, macOS, Windows).
  • The ability to write clean, well-tested code with clear documentation.
  • Excellent written and spoken skills, both technical and non-technical..
  • A willingness to engage in the process of defining our work through conversations with product management, other engineering teams, and the rest of the company.
  • The ability to help others on the team become better at their jobs through mentoring, thoughtful code reviews, and generally being a team player.

ASSETS

If you have experience with any of the following please make sure to highlight it in your cover letter:

  • TypeScript experience.
  • Javascript tooling such as Webpack and frameworks such as React and Redux.
  • Elm experience, especially large Single Page Apps.
  • Microservices and message queues.
  • Good working knowledge of Docker.
  • Experience building both web based and desktop based software.
  • Docker, Mesos, DCOS, Kubernetes.
  • Functional programming languages.
  • Experience Creating parsers, compilers or code intelligence systems
  • Deep understanding Process management on Windows or Unix environments
  • Work with reactive, event based systems
  • Low level architecture (sockets, primitive data types like in C) and the ability to interface and interact with low level libraries (e.g. debuggers).
