Pathpoint is looking for an experienced Software Engineer with deep frontend experience to join our new Agent Experience team. Software Engineers at Pathpoint write, test, document & evolve the code and software systems that deliver value to Pathpoint and our customers. Our stack is TypeScript, GraphQL, React, Node, and Golang, continuously deployed on AWS and continuously tested in CircleCI.

Senior Software Engineers are the technical leaders of their teams, responsible for building the highly leveraged software systems that are multipliers of the team’s efficiency and working closely with other team leaders to advise on planning and set technical direction.

Our teams are small to enable focus, and often employ Agile Development practices to solve problems in a complex real world domain where the requirements may not yet be fully defined, so the solutions need to be resilient to change while being stable and performant.

About Pathpoint
Pathpoint is building the next generation of technology for the $160B Excess and Surplus Lines insurance market.  We’re working with the premier carriers and brokerages to build a new trading exchange that turns painful and time consuming back and forth into a seamless digital experience. We're headquartered in San Francisco but are transitioning to a fully distributed team that values our teammates working where they’re most safe and productive. We seek candidates who see this world as an opportunity to craft new best practices and build a remote-first culture that doesn’t just survive, but thrives. (Learn more)

    • Are responsible for crafting the software systems, frameworks, and architectures that are the foundation of the systems their team builds on top of.
    • Advises the team’s Engineering Manager & Product Manager on higher level roadmap timelines & feasibility, as well as insights and recommendations on how to improve hiring pipelines.
    • Are often crossing team boundaries to solve problems.
