Job Description

Hello potential future Ki team member. Are you looking for a technical role in a collaborative environment where innovation is its major driver? Ki is looking for an experienced Full Stack Engineer to join our growing team.

Who are we?

Ki is the biggest global insurance tech company you’ve never heard of, unless you’ve been looking to insure a satellite, wind farm or music festival recently.

We launched in 2021 on the back of a fund raise that delivered $500m of investment, making us one the largest fintech start-ups that year. Our investors were excited about the fact we were revolutionising the way a 333 year-old industry was working. There are hardly any industries left that are mainly paper based, but the specialty insurance market is one. Together with partners at Google and UCL we developed Ki and created a platform that helped insurance brokers place risk in a fast and frictionless way. We’re continuing to lead the charge on the digitalisation of this market and to realise this goal we need more excellent minds to work with us to realise more opportunities.

We exist to make it easy for insurance employees to focus on the clever things and to spend more time building relationships than filling out endless forms. If helping us transform a multi billion global industry sounds exciting to you let’s get to the formal bit.

What’s the role?

We're looking for a Full-stack Engineer to join our team. You’ll work on our core offering – which is the platform that has delivered the $400m revenue we achieved in 2021 and are looking to grow exponentially over the next few years. We're a multi-disciplined team, bringing together expertise in software and data engineering, full stack development, platform operations, algorithm research, and data science. Our squads focus on delivering high-impact features – we have open and honest conversations about what’s working and are quick to adapt to continuously improve.

You’ll build robust and scalable software for business critical, web-based applications as well as eye-catching, functional, efficient, and reusable web and mobile-based sites that drive these web applications. By using experience as mid-senior level engineer working across modern web stack.

We speak Kotlin for services and Python when working with data. Our rich UIs are built in React and Typescript. Postgres is our preferred database engine and our infrastructure is entirely cloud based in GCP, defined with Terraform so this experience would be desirable.

Our culture

Inclusion & Diversity is at the heart of our business at Ki. We recognise that diversity in age, race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, physical ability, thought and social background bring richness to our working environment. No matter who you are, where you’re from, how you think, or who you love, we believe you should be you.

You’ll get a highly competitive remuneration and benefits package. This is kept under constant review to make sure it stays relevant. We understand the power of saying thank you and take time to acknowledge and reward extraordinary effort by teams or individuals.

If this sounds like a role and a culture that appeals to you, let us know.
