We're looking for a senior software engineer or site reliability engineer with experience in Go, microservices, distributed systems and cloud-native technology to come help build a global services platform for developers.
Cloud-native development has become massively complex in a world filled with docker, kubernetes, envoy, istio and much more. We want to abstract away all of this complexity and build a global platform for developers to build and share services.

For us, an interest in people comes first; finance follows.
More about what we're doing
The apps and infrastructure we’re building are designed to place the power of personal data back into the hands of normal people.

That’s what we’re working towards.

Bud’s mission is to make the money part of people’s lives simple. To get there, we need a workforce that is diverse as the people we create our products for.

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!
