Updater’s FinTech Division is the newest addition to and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Updater. Built to rethink how insurance companies communicate with their policyholders before, during, and after a move, the division builds products that help consumers transfer insurance policies during a stressful move, in just a few clicks. Imagine if you had that the last time you moved?!
The division will also pursue other FinTech opportunities to help streamline the moving process for our users.
As a Senior Backend Engineer, you’ll join the core engineering team in our FinTech Division and will be instrumental in designing and building our back-end processing systems, including setting the technology direction for those systems, in collaboration with the team. We are looking for someone that is passionate about building simple and highly maintainable solutions for complex problems.
Our backend systems utilize a variety of storage technologies, both SQL and NoSQL, and expose APIs via AWS Lambda, using Node.js and Java. We also utilize Apache Beam for streaming data processing, deployed on Amazon EMR. The backend systems support our web UI and also implement a variety of integrations with our business partners. We have no legacy systems (!) -- so we can use the best, latest technology to build solutions without being constrained by prior design choices or old technology.
While Updater’s headquarters are based in New York City, the Insurance Division is based in Charlottesville, Virginia, in a great area right between ACAC and Three Notch’d Brewery.
