SF Insuretech (“SFI”) is a fast-growing start-up, looking to revolutionize the automobile insurance. SFI has an opening for a permanent Senior React Native Developer based in its Shoreditch, London office.

Disruption is at the heart of SFI. Our customers will pay fair premiums which are based on how they drive and what conditions they drive in, rather than how old they are or what area they live in. We do this by collecting telematics data from our customers’ mobile phones to get a driver rating and, location, speed limit and weather data to get a conditions rating.

Amazing mobile user experiences are one of SFI’s fundamental differentiators. Your responsibility will be the development of immersive, streamlined and delightful mobile applications using React Native and TypeScript that collect this telematics data and provides our customers with real-time feedback. These apps are to be used both in and out of the car (incl. Apple Car Play and Android Auto). You must be able to demonstrate experience implementing multiple previous React Native and TypeScript applications while also having exposure to native iOS and Android development.

Over and above React Native, TypeScript and exposure to native iOS and Android development, we will look favourably on experience working with telematics, in-car mobile apps, Apple Car Play, Android Auto, and challenger banks or insurance companies or similar start-up which has aimed to massively disrupt an industry.

From a personal point of view, we’re looking for someone who is innovative, collaborative and has passion for what they do. You’ll be expected to roll up your sleeves and get stuck in from day one.

So that’s what we need, what about what we can offer you.

You’ll be joining a highly talented, focussed and energetic team. We work in an agile way with daily stand-ups and weekly sprints. Design, development, and stakeholders work closely and collaboratively together. We believe strongly in automation too. Our repos are in GitHub and our CI/CD pipelines are set up in CircleCI. We have logging and monitoring setup with PaperTrail and New Relic. We also have a strong focus on user experience and you’ll be working closely with our design team to ensure that our customers always are able to do things in the easiest way possible.

We believe in flexible working and as such we come into the office for 2 days a week (Tuesday and Wednesday) with the other days working remotely. We start later (at 10:00) to align with our Los Angeles office a little better too. Our London office is based in the heart of Shoreditch (London’s tech district) and provides a funky, creative space around like-minded people.

So let’s sum up.

What you’ll be doing:
·      Your responsibility is the development of mobile applications using React Native that:
o  Sends telematics data to our backend services
o  Provides real-time feedback to customers
·      Extending the apps for Android Auto and Apple Car Play
¬∑¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†You’ll be working remotely for 3 days a week and in our Shoreditch office 2 days a week.
¬∑¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†You’ll be working in an agile and collaborative environment with a great team around you.

You should apply if:
·      You have experience building products in React Native, native iOS and/or Android (bonus points for all three), and have an awareness of technologies across the stack
·      You have worked with ES7/Typescript
·      You care deeply about building reliable, well-tested systems
·      You are great at explaining complicated technical concepts clearly
·      Have an understanding of the principles of computer science
¬∑¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†You’re highly detail oriented
¬∑¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†You’re used to rapid iteration using Agile and Lean Start-up methodologies
·      Have the ability to work in a highly organized and efficient manner
·      Extremely passionate about design principles, human behaviour and the interaction between people and technology

Highly regarded but not a prerequisite:
·      Extensive native iOS and Android development experience
·      In-car mobile development experience
·      Apple Car Play or Android Auto development experience
·      Redux experience
·      Telematics experience
·      Motor Insurance (Aviva, etc) or retail banking start-up (e.g. Monzo, Starling, etc) experience

This is an extraordinary opportunity to get in at the ground floor of a business that seeks to revolutionize a $222B industry – and that’s in the US alone. If you are passionate about the user experience across platforms and have a hunger to shake up a market that is ripe for change, this is the role for you. This role will report into the Head of Software Engineering.
