Senior backend engineer

Full time

About Us

At Zemble, we believe that technology should empower customer-facing staff to build better relationships, not force them to push paper ‘digitally’. By helping highly regulated organizations to manage business processes involving complex stakeholder networks, workflows, and materials (think claims, complaints etc) we’re setting a new standard for secure and accessible collaboration.

With a focus on insurance-related businesses but big plans to expand into other verticals, our technology delivers digital experiences for knowledge workers, customers, and stakeholders in a human-centered, rather than solely automation-centered, way. Our technology impacts all kinds of users from frontline staff to regulatory workers to vulnerable customers experiencing disabilities and loss. With that in mind simplicity and accessibility are at the core of everything we do.

A degree  in Computer Science or similar (without a technical degree, you’ve been building scalable products and platforms for 6+ years in-house)
You have been involved in decision making, architecting, or delivering robust backend features at a startup or scaleup
RESTful API design and know-how
