We eliminate waste throughout the industry and calculate the complex into simple, valuable solutions to improve people's lives. We are humble, driven, and committed to improving the lives of millions. 

About the Position 
As we build the future of consumer insurance in a modern age, data is at the core of everything that we do.  The role requires team members who are adept at building software tools to move and organize data with an approach that is rooted in improving the insights and efficiency of the business.  Our Data Engineers design and build the backbone that makes this development possible.  At Assurance, we hire experts in their field, and we give them the independence and trust to build based on their expertise. 

The lead is expected to technically manage 2-4 Data Engineers at a mix of levels. Your focus will be on the whole team's productivity and strive to increase the impact of the team's output. You will be empowered to make independent decisions for the team and are expected to partner effectively with all areas of the business.

Your time will be split between the following
* 30% coding
* 30% mentoring
* 40% cross team planning and project management

To be successful in this role, you must possess the following:

  • Excellent communication ability – you can explain your work in a way that anyone in the company can understand, and you can frame problems in a way that ensures the right question is being asked. 
  • Business Acumen – you are always eager to understand how the business works, and more specifically, how your work impacts the business.  
  • Enthusiastic yet humble – you are excited about the work you do, but you are also humble enough to embrace feedback – you don’t need to be the smartest person in the room. 
  • Strong technical skills - you are expected to be able to jump into the codebase and be able to lead the way in all areas, whether that is our large Spark jobs, our Pub/Sub architecture or are APIs.
