Backend Engineer Cuvva London, United Kingdom £75,000 to £90,000 a year
1 Applicants This Week
More Than 6 Months Old
Cuvva is a new kind of insurance that’s fast, friendly, and flexible.
We get it - insurance doesn’t sound exciting. But this isn’t insurance as you know it. It’s insurance the way it should be. We’re putting the customer first and building products that solve real human needs.
We were the first company in the UK to sell hourly insurance, and the first to sell insurance through an app. We’ve sold over 1 million policies. We’ve written over 260,000 lines of code. And we’re a fast-growing team of over 70 talented people.
Why work for Cuvva?
We’re shaping the future of insurance. So we don’t cut corners. We try to do the right thing, even when that makes life more difficult for us.
We’ll speak up when we have an idea - but we know when to let go and get behind something else.
And we’re comfortable giving and receiving honest feedback, and trying new ways of doing things. It’s the Cuvva way.
We’re building a diverse team with different backgrounds, outlooks and experiences. So we give everyone a fair chance of getting a role at Cuvva. Even if you secretly don’t love insurance. (Don’t worry - we didn’t either.)
And if you need any adjustments or support when you’re applying to Cuvva, no worries. Just let us know.
As well as a competitive salary (£75-90k, dependent on experience) and equity based remuneration, benefits of working at Cuvva include:
We’re committed to ensuring that everyone has a fair chance to join Cuvva, whatever your background. We will always treat your application in a fair and equal manner.
Professional development budget
Brand new MacBook
Health and wellbeing budget
Enhanced parental leave
Workplace pension scheme
33 days of holiday a year (including public holidays )
Referral bonus when you bring your friends to join the Cuvva team
Office library full of great books
Fresh fruit and breakfast club every day
Season ticket loans
Cycle to work scheme
A day off to volunteer
One-to-one sessions with our Sanctus coach, giving you a safe space to talk about your mental health
Coffee machine in the office
Fully stocked beer and soft drink fridge - we do team drinks every Thursday
Regular team lunches
Monthly team outings (so far we’ve done things like karaoke, go-karting, bowling and comedy night)
About the role
We're looking for a software engineer who has held senior positions in engineering teams within high-growth, high-scale startups, who will operate with a high level of autonomy, ensuring impeccable reliability and availability. You care deeply about building rock-solid infrastructure for the long term, with a track record of delivering solutions which support your team and your product.
You will develop Cuvva's core platform, abstracting the key processes required to sell insurance, delivering solutions that allow the team to develop strong and stable products, without having to spend time ensuring they get the basics right.
Aside from developing core platform services, we expect you will also become heavily involved with ops and security activities, contributing towards the maintenance of our servers, AWS account, etc.
When we refer to the "core platform", we mean the services which underpin the processes of all insurance activities on our system.
For example, we expect one of these to be the "policy service", which might be responsible for ensuring compliant issuance of policies, coordinating mid-term adjustments, preventing overlapping policies (double insurance), etc.
Other services could include user authentication, risk & pricing calculation, handling the process of modifying user data in-line with any mid-term adjustment requirements.
All services we consider to be part of the core platform will have strict requirements around stability, data integrity and transactional safety. All functionality must fail safely and explicitly, for example using 2-phase commit processes or other similar techniques. This will also require a reasonable level of testing to validate this safety.
The perfect addition to our team will have:
a fiercely independent and self-driven approach
5+ years' commercial experience working on back-end systems at high-scale startups
at least a year of commercial experience working with Go
strong knowledge of security practices, ideally with a slightly grey-hat background
a working knowledge of the entire web stack - from how DNS lookups are transmitted, to how browsers prioritize CSS rules
awareness of compliance and financial regulation
We are a small team so it is important that the successful candidate is not only technically highly competent, but also a great cultural fit!
Improbable has created SpatialOS: a networking solution combining low latency, tools for faster iteration, and a ready-to-go architecture capable of supporting innovative games.
Now the Improbable Defence division, building on the backbone of SpatialOS, has combined world class scientific modelling, market leading AI, mission specific user interfaces and a uniquely flexible and secure deployment model to create a powerful simulation platform tailored to the needs of the military.
Our mission? To enable the most realistic and effective military simulations ever experienced, making defence users more effective on operations and decreasing the cost of military preparedness.
The Partner Engineering team are software engineers responsible for providing deep technical expertise to our strategic partners & customers to successfully develop and build with SpatialOS and our advanced probabilistic modelling products.
Partner Engineers at improbable are Software Engineers with deep knowledge of the core concepts of our faster-than-realtime simulation products, and help our industry partners to build specific products. A Partner Engineer in the Defence Unit helps design, deploy, and support solutions that are performant, scalable, and highly available wherever the end user requires.
Areas for Impact
Your work is amongst the most high-profile and important work that Improbable Defence does.
You will be working directly on one of our multi-year, high-value programs of work. You will work through the entire SDLC with partners.
In early phases, you will provide design expertise as well as deep competence in our modelling & simulation products.
As the project progresses you will serve as the Improbable product SME, leading complex areas of feature development (integrations, deployment, performance optimizations).
At the front-line with our partners you will be uniquely positioned to influence product direction, leveraging direct feedback and qualitative evidence.
We'd like to hear from you if you identify with much of the following:
Experience building cloud-based software products, leveraging tools like Docker or Kubernetes for example.
Experience building data-intensive software products leveraging tools like Kafka or Spark for example.
Experience with a range of software engineering languages; we use Golang, C++, Kotlin & Typescript but welcome a range of backgrounds and are happy to train candidates up
Natural communicator; able to work with a range of stakeholders inside and outside the core business.
You have a desire to work with our partners who are central to our platform; these include large engineering and defence organisations.
You have experience designing technical solutions alongside partners or customers; you may be a solutions architect or customer engineer for instance.
You enjoy working cross-functionally, contributing to Product direction and influencing senior stakeholders.
The best ideas are often the least expected and require new ways of thinking; that’s why our teams at Improbable are made up of an incredible range of talented people. Improbable is proud to be an equal opportunity employer.

We work closely together as a company
We’re a small team with a big vision, so no-one specialises too much - we wear many hats week-to-week. We’re grappling with a large problem so there are plenty of challenges to be faced but we face them one sprint at a time. Your role here would see you working with the founders of the company and the rest of the team on a wide range of issues to bring our vision of a better credit bureau to reality.
You can work with a host of great technologies

are interested in building a data-oriented company
love writing elegant and well-tested software
have experience building distributed systems
What we value:

Competitive salary and stock options
Flexible working arrangements, generous leave and a dog-friendly office. See full list of benefits - plus a bit more about working for us - here
A ton of support, but an opportunity to run your own schedule and role

Head Of Engineering Bezos London, United Kingdom / Limited Remote £80,000 to £110,000 a year
1 Applicants This Week
More Than 6 Months Old
Head of Engineering
We are seeking a hands-on Head of Engineering for our well funded e-commerce fulfillment startup
At Bezos, our vision is to Deliver Happiness: For our team, for the end consumers, for our e-commerce sellers as well as our logistics partners.
Exciting times in e-commerce: E-commerce sales in Europe is projected to be £406 billion by 2023, expected to grow 8% per year between 2018-2023. The growth is driven by consumers that increasingly buy more online as well as the emergence of small and medium e-commerce sellers, which have grown at 18% and 28% per year, respectively between 2009-2017. There are 200,000 small and medium e-commerce sellers in the UK alone, selling their products through multiple channels, including marketplaces such as Amazon and eBay, their own websites, and on social media like Facebook and Instagram. Today, these small and medium sellers are ignored by the large incumbent logistics service providers and we are on a mission to change that.
Building a next generation Fulfillment-as-a-Service platform: With this explosive growth in e-commerce, the demand for e-commerce fulfilment and delivery is booming. Bezos is a next generation Fulfillment-as-a-Service (FaaS) platform, that allows small and medium e-commerce sellers to outsource their storage, fulfilment, delivery, and returns and focus on what is more important: growing their businesses. Bezos’ operational model is based on partnering with certified logistics suppliers that will execute the different services on our behalf. We believe there is a massive market opportunity to serve these currently unattended and fast growing small and medium e-commerce sellers. We believe that the e-commerce logistics landscape will give place to significant disruption opportunities, and we are planning on taking a leading role to achieve them.
Two founders with proven track records: The founding team consists of Diego Lijtmaer and Vernon Tjon-Soei-Len, who are two seasoned technology executives with experience in e-commerce, the gig economy and last mile delivery industry. Diego built the business development and logistics functions at Just Eat Plc (food delivery, FTSE 100), founded and ran a hospitality business Bacanal and worked in investment banking at UBS (LinkedIn profile here). Vernon was the Director of Amazon Flex UK (part of Amazon’s Last Mile Product & Technology team) and part of the Senior Leadership Team of Amazon Logistics UK, and prior to that worked at Zipcar, Bain & Company and JPMorgan (LinkedIn profile here).
We are looking for an exceptional technology leader: Someone that gets excited about the adventure of a startup and wants to build a world class billion dollar business. Someone that enjoys transforming industries, that enjoys changing the way businesses and consumers think about delivering and receiving e-commerce orders. Someone that is hands on, solves problems, and gets their hands dirty in the execution. Someone that has a demonstrated track record of building amazing technology and building and leading high performance tech teams.
