Acrisure Technology Group

Software Engineer - Frontend (React) 

Hybrid (3 days per week average in Downtown Austin,TX office)

Note: This is a full-time, in-house position. We do not offer C2C or C2H employment. We are interested in every qualified candidate who is eligible to work in the United States. We are not able to sponsor visas for this position. 

Acrisure Technology Group (ATG) is a fast paced, AI-driven team building innovative software to disrupt the $6T+ insurance industry.  Our mission is to help the world share its risk more intelligently to power a more vibrant economy. To do this, we are transforming insurance distribution and underwriting into a science. 

At the core of our operating model is our technology: we’re building an AI driven digital marketplace for risk and applying it at the center of Acrisure, a privately held company recognized as one of the world's top 10 insurance brokerages and the fastest growing insurance brokerage globally. By leveraging technology to push the boundaries of understanding and transferring risk, we are systematically converting data into predictions, insights, and choices, and we believe we can remove the constraints associated with scale, scope, and learning that have existed in the insurance industry for centuries. 

We are a small team of extremely high caliber engineers with a diverse background across industries and technologies. Our engineers have worked at large companies like Google and Amazon, high frequency trading companies like Two Sigma and Jump Trading, and a variety of smaller startups, including successful startup founders.

The Role

As a Software Engineer, Frontend (React) at ATG, you’ll be an essential part of the team building world-class software to transform the insurance industry. You'll work closely with our UI/UX design team and full-stack engineers create user-friendly interfaces for our web applications. You will be responsible for ensuring that our applications are easy to navigate, visually appealing, and performant. As a successful candidate, you will take full advantage of state-of-the-art tools, conceive new ones when the right solution does not yet exist and act with a sense of urgency and agility to deliver value. You are driven by a passion for improving the world through technology and delighting users. Help us to turn our vision into reality.

Our technology runs on Google Cloud and is configured with Kubernetes, leveraging various services in that environment. Our data storage layer includes BigQuery, BigTable, and Postgres. We code primarily in Kotlin, Python, Java, and JavaScript and make use of many frameworks, including Dataflow, Cloud AI Platform, KubeFlow, Spring, and React.

Here are some of the ways in which you’ll achieve impact:

  • Build beautiful, efficient, and reliable technology that drives the future of frontend products in the insurance industry.
  • Collaborate with product managers and user experience designers to iterate on the design and implementation of our product.
  • Assist in designing and maintaining our tech stack, building when it makes sense, inventing when necessary, and continually upgrading as tools evolve.
  • Identify, adopt, and evangelize best practices.
  • Advocate for and identify creative implementations to optimize business impact.
  • Measure the effectiveness of new features, find and address performance issues, and drive continuous improvement.
  • Work collegially and effectively as we grow a world-class, diverse engineering team.

You may be fit for this role if you:

  • 4+ years as a Front-End Software Engineer
  • Possess exceptional knowledge of computer science fundamentals and software engineering principles.
  • Have expertise with modern software tools, libraries, and languages, including modern JavaScript libraries and tooling (e.g., React). Experience in mobile web and/or native mobile development is a plus.
  • Are product- and customer-focused, with demonstrated design and UX sensibilities and a passion for delighting the end user.
  • Are excited about the opportunity to use data and AI to transform the insurance industry.
  • Are entrepreneurial and action-biased; self-directed and excited to build something from scratch in a fast-paced, experimentation-driven environment.
  • Stamp out unnecessary complexity, harness necessary complexity, and make complex topics clear and accessible to others.
  • Possess empathy, kindness towards others, a positive attitude, and self-awareness.
  • Bring a unique, non-traditional perspective to enhance our team’s problem solving abilities.
  • Have a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or a related field, or equivalent experience.
  • Are willing and able to work from the headquarters in Austin, Texas (preferred), with remote roles considered for the right candidate.

It’s not expected that any single candidate would have expertise across all of these areas. If you are a solid engineer and eager to work on data- or insurance-related platforms/products, we are eager to talk to you.
