Engineering Lead

Boston, MAEngineeringPermanent (Full-Time)Engineering

Apply now
Simply Business is more than our name. It's how we approach insurance: Make it clear. Make it simple. Make it affordable. By combining exceptional talent, technology, data, and knowledge, Simply Business is the go-to online insurance brokerage that protects small businesses and the entrepreneurs who work hard to build them. 

We want team members who have the drive to challenge boundaries. If you’re smart and passionate about delivering brilliant customer experiences, we’d love to hear from you.

We need an Engineering Lead to join us in Boston, MA.

In this role, you will develop customer focused products in a culture which champions Agile, cross functional teams and continuous collaboration.

As a Engineering Lead, you will:

  • Work with small, cross-functional, collaborative teams to drive out requirements, highlight risks and prioritize stories
  • Work with team members to identify areas for learning and helping them grow in these areas via project work, external learning, or additional mentoring

Responsibilities include:

  • Being hands on in developing our products using best practices, and appropriate tools and technologies
  • Leading a small project team of engineers based in Boston and London
  • Championing agile methodologies whilst creating useful systems for our customers in a collaborative way
  • Highlighting areas for continuous improvement and driving their prioritization
  • Being proactive in suggesting new tools, technologies, and ways of working

What we are looking for:

  • Experience of leading a small project or product team of Engineers
  • Strong programming skills in any language. We look for strong engineers and our philosophy is that a strong engineer is not defined by the technologies they use, so Ruby experience is not essential. You’ll just need to be happy to cross-over to Ruby if you join us – and we’ll support you with that
  • The ability to challenge us! We love people who come in and aren’t afraid to raise questions and help us improve
  • Strong communication and collaborative skills and strong desire to liaise closely with business teams
  • An advocate of engineering best practices
