Our mission at JOANY is to make buying and using health insurance simple and transparent. Using data, machine learning + humans, we are personalizing healthcare for the consumer. Using our web platform anyone can buy the best health insurance for their specific needs within minutes.
JOANY is seeking a Lead Software Engineer to join the team who will not only take a leadership role in architecting and coding our software, but will also play a pivotal role in growing and mentoring the engineering team.

Interested in the gig? Here’s what you'll do:

  • Build applications and develop our vertically integrated solutions from the group;

  • Maintain a keen focus on end-to-end platform performance;
  • Define systems architecture and design, and evaluate feasibility and sustainability;
  • Partner with product management to lead technical requirements.

JOANY Culture: What we look for:

  • Judgment. You identify root causes, and get beyond treating symptoms. You think strategically, and can articulate what you are, and are not, trying to do
  • Communication. You are concise and articulate in speech and writing. You listen well, instead of reacting fast, so you can better understand.
  • Impact. You accomplish amazing amounts of important work. You focus on great results rather than on process.
  • Selflessness. You are ego-less when searching for the best ideas. You make time to help colleagues. 
  • Innovation. You create new ideas that prove useful. You challenge prevailing assumptions when warranted, and suggest better approaches.
  • Courage. You say what you think even if it is controversial. You make tough decisions without excessive agonizing. 
  • Honesty. You are quick to admit mistakes. You only say things about fellow employees you will say to their face.

What you'll bring:

  • B.S. in Computer Science or equivalent experience;
  • 4+ years of production coding experience (we use Ruby);
  • Experience with all aspects of software development, deployment and maintenance;
  • Experience with a range of languages and technologies, like RoR, Java, Python, Javascript, HTML, PostGres, React or something similar;
  • Solid understanding of object-oriented design;
  • Excellent problem-solving and communication skills;
  • Experience working in a fast-paced, high-growth environment.
