Roles in Tech & Product

The department

Finding the right talent in tech can be a real challenge for many businesses. That’s why we’ve created a stimulating and supportive environment where you can get involved in re-thinking how we design insurance products - and the technology that supports them.

 

What sort of opportunities are there for me?

We have a wide range of opportunities across Data Science, Back-End Development, Front-End Development, Product Design, Product Management, Site Reliability, Systems Admin, and Quality Assurance. 

We operate with a squad system and Agile ways of working within quarterly terms, and we really enjoy working collaboratively. We hold regular ‘Hack Weeks’ to look at products and address problems relating to the business, and we get the chance to highlight and work on things we’re interested in and feel passionately about. 

 

What about your offices and approach to remote working?

Our permanent UK opportunities are typically based in Birmingham, London and Haywards Heath and more recently, Stockholm.  Since the pandemic we have been working 100% remote and as the future of work evolves; so will we. We expect to have a blend of working from your designated office for a couple of days a month, with the rest of time working from home.  The time we spend together will be meaningful and worthwhile, plus (we hope!) a lot of fun.

 

What's the tech stack?

Our teams help build and maintain the platforms that allow us to innovate our products and improve our customer experience. We primarily work in Python and Python web frameworks and we have an emphasis on modern software development practices: Agile, CI/CD, TDD, Mob and Pair based programming. We take a Product-led approach to all core software development and we use best-in-breed tech for in Front-End too: Storybook, Vue.JS, LESS/SAAS, Prismic, hosted and static deployed site. Our data analytics and modelling infrastructure is in GCP and when it comes to databases, Mongo DB is our weapon of choice to enable us to evolve swiftly and scale elegantly.

We have a strong commitment to serverless architectures (AWS Lambdas and Netlify), secure coding (Auth0 and JWT) bleeding-edge reliability and performance (Instana, PagerDuty and Cloud Front) in addition to Infrastructure Automation (CDK and Terraform.)

 

Our approach to DE&I:

We want to take a moment to let you know that we are committed to inclusive hiring within Tech and Product. It's not just a "nice to have" or fancy corporate jargon - it's something we all need to challenge and support to change the demographic imbalance in our industry. We actively welcome applications from all candidates regardless of gender identity, sex, sexual/romantic preference, age, (dis)ability, veteran status, religion or belief, pregnancy/maternity, gender reassignment or marital/civil partnership status.

 

We also appreciate that juggling commitments outside of work can be difficult and a barrier to helping great talent from under-represented groups find the right career opportunity. If you would love to work with us and require some flexibility in your working pattern, please let us know.

It's our promise to you that whoever you are, however you self-identify and whatever your circumstances - we'll do our best to accommodate your needs and remove any systemic barriers to ensure a fair and equitable experience.

Why join Bought By Many?

Award-winning innovative technology and exceptional customer service are at the heart of our offer: we now rank 30th on the Tech Track 100 (2020) and we won the Insurance Choice Awards (2020) for both Best Pet Insurance Provider and Innovation of the Year. We’re proud to be driving unprecedented change in insurance and have doubled our revenues annually for the last 4 years with more ambitious growth still to come.

Our latest Series D funding round was $350m which values us at $2bn.

Our company is fast-paced, respectful, fun-loving and (most importantly) passionate about pets and their well-being.

We think big and we can only do that if we have a wonderful array of different people with different lived experiences and backgrounds, bringing their whole self to work every day. Throughout the business, you will meet people who think differently, aim for impact, and love to try new things.

To create an insurance policy that actually makes insurance better for everyone, companies need to look beyond just making things clearer and fairer.
